KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 23:6 KJV “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
Favour is always the result of faithfulness unto the Lord. Favour does not just come on any one, rather, it responds to a particular life. A life of obedience to God. The scripture said surely goodness and mercies shall follow me, all the days of my life. It is good to claim that good and mercy will follow you, yet make sure also that you are living in submission to the word, and you are staying faithful to the Lord. Please understand that the favour of God simply means God is with you, causing you to excel and sailing through all difficult issues of life. Gen 39:2 KJV” And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.” Joseph became a very established man in Egypt.
The Lord Jesus said in John 8:29 reads ” And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.” The presence of the Father never left Jesus because He continually did that which pleased the Father. To be established in life is to have the presence of the Father continually with you.
King David was a really established man during his days. It was only in his time that Israel took over all the lands God had allotted for them. He was the only king who enthroned his successor before he died. David left so much wealth for his successor. He humbled and trusted God to go through all the facts to become established. He finally said he would forever dwell in the house of God. Your ultimate sign of establishment is your commitment to staying with the people of God and serving in the house of God. Your life is truly meaningful if your life brings pleasure to God.
Dear brother, after going through these series of studies, you can set up your life, to be very established in this life. Make your life a meaningful and an exciting one.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the truth of your word. I diligently follow through all that you have revealed, that gives me a very stable and meaningful life, in this world of sin and misery. My life is made glorious and also appreciative.
THOUGHT: ALL WHO FOLLOW GOD’S APPROVED PATH, STAY ON TOP.
