Joseph Prince Sermon How To See Favor Increase In Your Life: Do you know that there’s a place, a circle of favor, a ground of favor that Jesus paid for you to have with your name on it.
Are you just satisfied with the fact that you have your name on it? Or do you want to possess it? Enjoy it in this life even, to see the favor of God translate into your life? In all the things that you see, and whatever you do, When you know you have favor with God, Just like Noah, Of all the people on earth, the Bible says: Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, God saved him and his entire family in the ark.
There was a beauty contest one time and there was a woman called Esther who was not part of the Persian people, but she had favor in the eyes of the king and she became queen. She became queen; She was able to be in a position to deliver her people, the Jewish people, against an enemy, So here we have the favor of God operating in the daily grind of life in our battles of life.
In all that we do, we have the favor of God and it translates into something practical. Favorable results, favorable outcomes, you must first possess that place of favor. Don’t just know it, don’t just be satisfied with the fact that you have your name on it, Possess it practically!
Notice the Word of God says: “Through whom (Christ), we also have access by faith into this grace. This “grace” here—“grace” is unmerited, unearned favor, into this favor in which we stand, we have access by faith into this favor in which we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
The Darby’s translation for this says: “by whom we have also, access by faith into this favor.” He brings that out, undeserved favor, that’s grace in which we stand and we boast in hope of the glory of God.”
As a Child of God, You are standing in the favor of God But what God is saying is that we have access by faith. Notice the word “by faith? God wants you, by faith to possess it. You are standing on favor ground because of what Christ did at the cross, and by His resurrection, you are now standing on favor ground.
You are no more on cursed ground, you are no more on condemnation ground, you are on favor ground, and you have access. The Bible says: “We have access by faith through Jesus.” He paid the price for us to stand in that circle of favor.
If you don’t read your Bible, you ought not feel guilty, you ought to feel hungry. Our reason to come to the Bible is not to score points with God. You’re already on favor ground, you already have peace with God, All your sins have been put away at the cross by the blood of Jesus Christ, So you have favor with God.
Pastor Joseph Prince tells us that God sees you under the same favor that His Son is under At His right hand, so why do you come to the Bible? Because, it is our inheritance book, this is the Book that tells us who we are today in Christ!
