As children of God, our hearts long to walk in the fullness of God and to see His favor in our lives. We want to see His blessings and to excel with great success in what we put our hands to.
Since this is the case, it's vitally important that we bring definition to what success looks like in the kingdom of God. Often, the system of this world is diametrically opposed to the systems of God's kingdom. For example, from a worldly standpoint, the apostle Paul's mission wasn't always successful. He suffered severe persecution and eventually died as a martyr. From a natural viewpoint, it doesn't seem like God's favor always encompassed Paul. But from a biblical perspective, we know that God's favor and success in the kingdom doesn't look like our circumstances going perfectly all the time and it certainly doesn't mean we won't face persecution.
Many snares lay before the child of God. Pursuing success, blessings and favor from a carnal and worldly viewpoint will majorly limit our breakthrough as believers and hinder us from truly and purely walking out God's divine assignment in our lives. We need to embrace humility, fear God and cling to Christ in truth and faith. When we value God's Word above all else and submit to the daily process of knowing Him, we begin to supernaturally see God's favor burst forth all around us. God refuses the proud, but He lavishes grace on the humble of heart. Humility looks like trusting in God's Word and His ways above all else.
On the latest episode of the Awaken podcast, Michael Lombardo speaks with internationally renowned minister and Bible teacher, Andrew Wommack. Together, they discuss Andrew's latest book entitled More Grace, More Favor. At the core of his message is the necessity of humility, the fear of God and walking in the Word. Andrew gives a biblically sound message that will help all believers truly walk in the favor of God. Tune in and find out more.
