THE FAVOR OF GOD
We are so excited to announce the upcoming airing of some very special episodes of “On The Road To Freedom” with our father in the faith, Kenneth Copeland. These episodes were filmed in beautiful Monument Valley, Utah and will be airing August 19-23 on the “Believer’s Voice of Victory” broadcasts to 885 million viewers worldwide! We are over the moon about this holy opportunity God has given us to help millions of people around the world know how much He loves them. We know we did not earn or deserve this, it is the FAVOR OF GOD!
The word 'grace' literally means 'favor' in Hebrew. Our favorite definition is that favor is a “Demonstration of God’s delight, pleasure, acceptance and good-will towards you.” (Strong’s # 2603) When we experience increase or promotion, it is a demonstration of God’s delight and pleasure in us!
In Luke 4:18-19, Jesus said that one of the reasons He was anointed was to proclaim over us the favor of God: “The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that THE TIME OF THE LORD’s FAVOR HAS COME.” The Amplified Classic Version says, “To proclaim…[the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound].” Jesus said it and we say it- we are living in the day where the free favors of God abound all around! The appointed time of God’s FAVOR is here!
It is vitally important that we declare the favor of God over our lives. Job 22:28-29 says, “You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God's FAVOR] shall shine upon your ways.” When they make you low, you will say, “There is a lifting up!” (AMPC) We must choose to believe and then as an act of our faith, decree the favor of God over our lives.
After years of declaring the “Uncommon, unprecedented favor of God,” in 2019 we have had huge breakthroughs for “On The Road To Freedom.” It has been a year of God’s unprecedented favor. When we decide and decree, the light of His FAVOR shines upon our ways!
The favor of God is a shield. Psalms 5:12 says, “For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.” The favor of God protects His plan for our life, making even our enemies to be at peace with us! When we have the favor of God, no man and no devil can stop our success! Proverbs 16:7 says, “When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” NKJV
We do play a part in seeing His favor manifest in our lives. Proverbs 3:3-4 says, “Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.” Other versions say, “Do not let kindness and truth leave you” (NASB) and “Let love and faithfulness never leave you.” (NIV) These attributes are the fruits of the Holy Spirit. As you exercise love, kindness and faithfulness, these godly traits become stronger and give us favor with God and man.
As you give your holy seed this month, be encouraged that your gift is helping us to reach more people for Jesus than ever before! We believe that God gives us His favor with millions of viewers all over the world so that we can tell them how good He is and how much He loves them.
We speak the blessing of The Lord over your seed! Number 6:22-27 says, “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron (the first High Priest) and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing…Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.” (NLT) When we bless you, God Himself backs our words! Therefore, we declare:
‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you His FAVOR and give you His peace.’
You Are Loved and Favored by God!
