Getting Those Brownie Points

You know, for years I worked myself to near death trying to obtain ‘Brownie Points”. Whether it was to gain favor with another individual or God, to be accepted, to be noticed, or just because it was expected, I thought I had to “do” something. No let’s get real…I thought I had to do EVERYTHING!!!

 But then I realized…

Brownie Points Were Getting Me No Where!

God’s word says…
“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,” Titus 3:5
 
Wow How Liberating!!!
I realized, I didn’t have to work for it…I am accepted and have approval because He has shown me mercy!
 
Now, I perform for an audience of one. I am now able to ask myself. What would God want me to do and no longer worry about doing EVERYTHING to gain those…

Are You Walking in the FOG

Do you really believe it was luck that delivered you from a that near wreck you had? Or do you think your boss was nice to you because you’re all that? Do you think the unexpected check came in the mail at the exact time you needed it was just a coincidence? I think not…It is favor!!!

I do not believe in luck…

I Believe in FAVOR and I choose to walk in the FOG (Favor of God)

I like what the article What does having the favor of God mean? has to say about favor. To favor means to give special regard to; to treat with goodwill; to show exceptional kindness to someone. Sometimes, it means to show extra kindness in comparison to the treatment of others; that is, preferential treatment. God gives His children favor.

Joel Osteen says it like this. “I believe God’s favor is something intangible where you’ve got God’s blessings on your lives.”

In the 10 Benefits of Walking in the Favor of God Pastor Winston Reyes of Victory Fort lists the following as benefits we as God’s kids can be entitled to.

  1. Supernatural increase and promotion
  2. Restoration of everything that has been taken from you
  3. Honor even in midst of adversaries
  4. Increase assets especially in the area of real estate
  5. Provision and overflowing harvest
  6. Protection from the LORD
  7. Prominence and preferential treatment 
  8. Prayers are heard and answered
  9. Purpose of God is accomplished through you
  10. Battles are won in which you won’t even have to fight because God will fight them for you
  11. 

Are You Walking in the FOG?

If so, stop calling it luck and call it what it is…

IT IS GOD’S FAVOR!!!
