Praying For God’s Favour


Short Exhortation About God’s Favour:

God’s favour is very important. When God decides to favour a man, He will make foreigners to rebuild his walls and He will cause the kings to serve him according to Isaiah 60:10. This bible verse summarized Nehemiah’s experience when he wanted to rebuild the broken walls.  He had favour with king Artaxerxes and the king made a provision for the temple to be rebuilt (Nehemiah 2:1-9). We should however take note that before Nehemiah could find favor with the king, he had already sought the face of the King of kings. He had settled the matter through fasting and prayer with the God who controls the heart of kings (Nehemiah 1).  Esther also found favour with king Xerxex and she was preferred above all other women (Esther 2:17). Although the king had many women he could have chosen from, however  Esther who was of Jewish origin, a lineage that has a special covenant with God, was the preferred damsel in the citadel. You can also experience the Lord’s favor and God can cause the kings to favour you. Let us pray that we will experience an unprecedented favour of God and that God will cause men to favour us.
