God’s Favor Alone

When Jacob left Laban, God instructed him to do so. No longer did Laban favor Jacob, namely because Jacob’s wealth was amassed through God’s favor and subsequently as a result of Laban’s selfishness. What did Jacob owe to Laban? Nothing. Jacob belongs to God not to Laban. There are many people who will favor us because of what they believe they can gain from us. They enter into God’s favor and into God’s presence with us by pretending to be on our side or traveling this journey with the same goal and purpose of a life redeemed and reconciled through Christ. In reality their motive is skewed and eventually they come out of their sheep’s clothing. When this happens we may find our selves in a place we don’t necessarily want to be. That’s okay! God knows his sheep and his sheep know him. The sheep always have favor with God! Keep listening, stay alert, return to his Word and believe in his truth. Eventually, like Jacob, God will call you out and lead you in his favor, to where he wants you to be.

God saw my affliction and the labor of my hands… Genesis 31:25-50

‘Very truly, I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold by the gate but climbs in by another way is a thief and a bandit…I know my own and my own know me… John 10:1-18

I write to you, …because you know the Father…because you know him who is from the beginning…because you are strong and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 1 John 2:12-17

  1. Thank you. I am accepting this as confirmation of my life path at this time. I only desire His path and His will. If my human weakness means I am mistaken but my heart is on Him, I have no fear. If through my own sin I fail Him, He will forgive if I truly desire to repent and change, and He will redeem the situation . . . so Love wins. False prophets are always there, but if we focus on Him then all will be well! I have had pain and heartache from the hurts from false prophets, but the great Healer and King of Kings is always with those who choose Him!

      • Praying for sure. My battle with spiritual warfare continues. Tonight my eye glasses fell apart for no reason and are not repairable. i’m having a series of surgeries with no insurance and thus this is not a good time to buy glasses which cost extra due to my needs . . . plus lack of income . . . however, the evil one will not win. I’m praising Him in the storm as the song says. He has the situation all taken care of in HIs plan. Blessings to you!
