Blessed and Highly Favored

"But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God." Luke 1:30

I love the thought of being highly favored by my God. Don't you? Did you know that it's God’s heart toward us, to give us favor? What does favor even look like to God? Mary found favor with God and became the mother of Jesus. Esther found favor and the King offered her half of his kingdom. Ruth asked for and found favor with Boaz, and became the great grandmother of King David. How did these women find favor with God? They were righteous! They had pure hearts. Could we say that our hearts are pure? Are our motives for doing righteous things pure? Everyday we get to decide in all that we encounter. We have the power for good or evil. Be careful, for even in the smallest of missteps could cost the highest of favor. Just like Mary and Ester and Ruth, God’s favor can make an extraordinary difference in your life. God never intended His favor to be found by just a handful of women. You too can find His favor and do things that could never be accomplished without it. Start your day expecting favor and walk out your day living worthy of God's favor. Today may you be blessed and highly favored and full of His unending love.
