Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 2 Peter 1:2
If you would like to walk in a greater measure of God’s favor, 2 Peter 1:2 says that grace, which is the undeserved favor of God, and peace, can be multiplied to you. Peace is the word “shalom” in Hebrew. Its definition includes wholeness, health, safety and provision.
So when you walk in divine favor and peace, you will walk in blessings in every area of your life! But how do the undeserved favor and shalom of God increase in your life? It is not by your laboring or toiling to earn it.
The Bible says that it comes as your knowledge of Jesus and His finished work increases. It comes as you learn more about and believe that through Jesus’ one sacrifice at the cross, God removed all your sins, gave you His righteousness as a gift ( Romans 5:17) and put you in Christ to enjoy everything Jesus has.
God’s favor is multiplied in your life when you simply believe that the favor of God that is on Christ is also on you because of what Jesus’ work at the cross has accomplished.
Today, you don’t have to struggle for favor. Just release it by speaking forth God’s Word in faith. Start your day by saying, “God’s favor surrounds me as with a shield.” (Psalm 5:12). As you continue to speak God’s favor over your life out of a revelation of Jesus’ finished work, you will see more of it being released.
Today, in your workplace, school or at home, begin to declare the favor of God by faith. Expect to receive preferential treatment wherever you are. Say, “I am surrounded with the favor of God because of Jesus’ finished work. I have favor before God and man!” And see God’s favor work for you!
I hope this blesses you and that henceforth you will begin to walk in greater favor, everyday of your life. Remember!! you are deeply loved, greatly blessed and highly favoured by Daddy God.
