Work Your Favor And Use Your Gifts

Favor is a funny thing. It's not garnered because you desire it. It is bestowed for reasons only the one giving can determine. Jacob had 12 sons, but it was the 11th that captured his heart. Joseph was the firstborn of the woman he'd worked 14 years to marry. Because she remained barren for so many years, Joseph was not conceived until Jacob's old age. Finally, seeing the fruit of that love gave Joseph the favor that no other son could achieve. The giving of a gift showed Jacob's favor and affection. A coat of many colors.

It’s An Opportunity, Not a Setback!

When faced with another problem or another battle, the temptation is to take the victim mentality even if you've won the previous battles and think you have a setback. If your self-talk sounds something like, "Just when things were going good, this had to happen." Or, "Why does this always happen to me?" Then you've got to shake yourself loose from the grip of self-pity.

Misinformation

We've all jumped to conclusions. We see something, hear something, or imagine something because we saw nothing and heard nothing. Relying on senses alone will lead to a conclusion that is just as imagined.

Surviving The Waiting Season

Hang on, saints! God is faithful. And He is going to see to it that the promise He made you comes to pass. Staying encouraged in the waiting season is key. But to do that, we need to look at the first promise. In that promise, we see three important factors about promises.

Don’t Miss This Opportunity

If you really knew who He was, you would ask Him. He has the gift-ready. He comes prepared.

The Tool Being Used Against You

The Eleven O'clock news used to be known for its news. You could turn on the television for thirty minutes and get caught up on the world's headlines. Now, however, national news has become nothing more than argument and opinion. A quick synonym search for the word argumentative will give you opinionated. Everything we see and hear, from commercials to cartoons, is now bloated with opinions being shoved down our throats. And if we aren't careful, we will become, in retaliation, precisely the same way. Why?

If You’re Not Careful, It Will Be To Late

Doesn't everyone want to know what to do? Yet, there is a second and equally powerful need. To know when to do it. Former chairman of Chrysler, Lee Iacocca, once said, "Even the correct decision is wrong when it was taken too late." 

It’s A Set Up

We've all heard that God works in mysterious ways. Well, those who say it aren't wrong. When Elisha wanted to retrieve an ax head from the bottom of a lake, his instruction was to throw a piece of wood in the water where the ax head sunk. This action caused it to float. When Gideon needed an army, the instruction was to use torches and pots as weapons. They won. When Israel needed water, God told Moses to throw a tree in the bitter water, and it would be made sweet. Water problem solved.

What Does Surrender Look Like?

What does real surrender look like? Surrender doesn't mean laying down or throwing up your arms in defeat. Surrendering means wrestling.

Let My People Go

Regardless of the state of a man, God is just. In Exodus, He did not demand that Pharoah worship Him, nor those who lived in Egypt. His command to Pharaoh was simply to allow His people the freedom to do so. He knew at the end that Pharoah would allow them to go and do as He commanded. Still, because He is just, He allowed Pharoah to let them go and worship Him before any judgment would be pronounced against the Egyptian king personally, his land, or his people. God is so good that He gave this defiant, earthly king the ability not to do battle with the King of Kings. And in His mercy, He still gives this ability to the kings, presidents, and officials of today. God is not slow in His deliverance, folks. He is deliberate. And He will always win. Our part is to continue to proclaim the message during the waiting.
