Meaning of well-favored:
Having special advantages
For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield
They say, “Favor, ain’t fair”. It definitely isn’t if you are not on the receiving end. When the favor of God is on your life things happen that you cannot explain. The favor of the Lord can cause people that don’t even like you to give you stuff. They don’t even know why they are doing it. It’s the favor of the Lord. Spoken in Proverbs 16:7, When man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
I never thought of favor as a defensive weapon, but it says in the scripture quoted above, the Lord will cover you with favor as with a shield. It sounds like when you are walking in the favor of God there is nothing the enemy can do to stop the flow of blessings in your life. I believe Joseph walked in that kind of favor. He had his trials, that’s for sure, but wherever he landed, he was promoted. The favor of God was upon his life. There was something about his character that made people promote him wherever he went. This is the kind of favor we have on our lives. We could also say, “These are the kind of advantages that we walk in”. Like Joseph, circumstances can make it look like we are not walking in God’s favor, but all we have to do is give it just a little time. Sometimes, we have to get pass the lesson God wants us to learn, or he wants to build faith in you to trust him. But after a little while, that favor will show up. I learned this in my own life when I went through a serious crisis. I was humbled the way God worked out every small detail while I walked through that period. It was concerning a family member who was ill and I just didn’t know how details were going to be taken care of. But the Lord showed me especially kind favor through family and friends. Even down to the smallest detail. It was truly beautiful
Heavenly Father, sometimes I am speechless when I see how much attention you pay to detail when it comes to the lives of your children. May I always set my heart to trust you for favor on every occasion and in every situation. You are a faithful God who knows how to even turn the hearts of our enemies to show us favor. Father I thank you now for promotions, connections, and opportunities in family, business and our careers. I thank you for favor for my children and grand children and for all of those that are pray for and that are connected to me. May they experience your divine favor in health, court cases, business deals, bank accounts and business dealings. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
