God’s Favor

“I will grant this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians.” Exodus 3:21 NASB

The Israelites were enslaved, outnumbered, and unarmed. As an isolated group of people surrounded by Egyptians, they appeared powerless and helpless. How surprising it must have sounded to hear God’s promise of favor!

We can only imagine how Moses and the other Israelites reacted. This promise must have seemed completely unrealistic.

Yet in the days to come, they would realize that God kept His Word, as He performed miracle after miracle on their behalf. He orchestrated an incredible series of events that led to their exodus from Egypt.

As the Israelites were departing, the Egyptians amazingly gave them articles of silver and gold. Why? As He had already promised, “the LORD had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians” (Exodus 12:35-36). Despite the many obstacles, God’s promise literally was fulfilled.

The Bible tells us that God’s favor opens doors and makes possible what seems impossible. We see this when Esther “obtained favor” and saved her people (Esther 5:2), and in the life of Mary who “found favor with God” (Luke 1:30). This favor also was a characteristic of Jesus’ life, for He “kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52).

God can grant this kind of favor at any time and to any person. The Bible says that “it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as with a shield” (Psalm 5:12). His favor provides us with protection and blessing as we please Him.

In your life, remember that God’s favor can change everything in your life. He can transform any difficult situation you face, whether in your family or your finances, your health or your relationships. As He did for the Israelites, God can grant this favor even to help you overcome your enemies.

Seek to please the Lord, and expect His blessings. Thank Him for His favor!

 

Prayer

Father, search my heart and mind, and reveal anything that is displeasing to You. I humble myself before You. Thank You for Your wisdom and favor. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
