Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Proverbs 3:3-4
According to this scripture, if we insist on the truth, and show mercy to others, then God will give us favor with Him and man.
Often times, we look for blessings from God to come in monetary form. And when we pray, we ask God to send us the amount of money we need to take care of the need at the present time. But how many of you know that favor from God is just as good, and you get the same results?
On Monday, our dryer stopped heating up. My husband looked to see if anything was blocking it from performing the task it was purchased to do. Nothing there. After researching online to see what the problem could be, he asked a few people at work what they thought and the cost to have it serviced. The amount that it would cost just to have someone come out to look at it, along with the price of the parts to have it fixed, he felt he could put that money toward purchasing another one.
After work, we went to a place that rent home appliances and furniture to see if they had a dryer that had been returned, for sale. Before we went in, we asked God to show us favor in this place because we didn't want to spend a lot of money for it, and asked him to help us. As we went in, we were greeted by a salesperson. We told her what we were looking for, and she said she would go check in the back. She then returned to tell us that she had a dryer for ,
get this, $50.00. How many of you know that GOD IS GOOD! My husband and I said, " Praise The Lord, God Is Good!!"
We were so excited, and couldn't wait to share our testimony. We kept thanking God for His Favor.
So even though the blessing was not monetary, God still provided our need through his favor and favor with man.
HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH!!!!!! The next time you are praying, don't forget to ask God for His
favor; it works just as good, if not better.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
