HOW TO ACTIVATE FAVOUR IN YOUR LIFE (I)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 40:1-22


MEMORY VERSE:

Ephesians 6:24 "Grace [favour] be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

How do you activate favour in your life? Having learnt about the power and wonders of favour, this is the next important thing to learn about favour.


The book of Ephesians says there is special favour for those who sincerely love Jesus: "Grace [favour] be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity" (Ephesians 6:24 NKJV). Therefore, the first way the Scriptures prescribe for you to activate favour in your life and walk continuously in favour is to love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. It means to love Him with all your heart, soul and might. It also means to love Him with unfeigned love (love without deception). You can do this by asking God to enable and help you.


Another way to reap a harvest of God's favour in your life is to sow favour. Make sure that you are helping someone else and showing favour to them. In life, what you make happen for others, God will make happen for you. While in the prison, the chief of the guard had placed two of Pharaoh's officials (the chief butler and the chief baker) under Joseph's charge. One day Joseph saw that they were sad and asked them why. Both of them narrated the disturbing dream they had had and Joseph interpreted that Pharaoh would restore the chief butler but that he would behead the chief baker. Everything happened according to his interpretation some days later. The main point here is that the favour Joseph sowed was reaped later when Pharaoh had a dream and needed someone to interpret it. The chief baker eventually remembered Joseph and told the king. Joseph's interpretation of Pharaoh's dream made him Egypt's Prime Minister. So to activate or unlock favour, sow favour in the lives of other people.


Abraham understood this principle and took advantage of it. He sowed into the life of a person who was highly favoured of God -- Melchizedek, the king of Salem and priest of God. Abraham gave him the tenth (tithe) of all things. Hebrews 7:6-7 says "But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises. And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better." Beloved, this same principle will work for you. Sow your resources, time and loyalty into the lives of those who are favoured by God (your spiritual parents, biological parents who are in the Lord, etc) and you will activate favour in your life.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Favour is God turning what the enemy meant for your bad and using it for your good.
