“The Lord gives wealth and poverty; humiliates, but also exalts.”
(1 Samuel 2: 7)
There is a difference between natural favor and supernatural favor. The natural favor must be earned, but the supernatural favor is a kind gift from GOD. 1 Samuel 2: 7 says: The Lord gives wealth and poverty humbles, but also exalts. A perfect example of this is found in the life of Esther.
GOD raised her from darkness to become the queen of all the earth. He gave her favor with everyone she knew, including the king. Esther turned to that favor to save herself and her people from being killed by Haman, who was an evil man.
She may have been afraid to go to the king and ask him to intervene, but Esther knew she had the grace of GOD and moved on with total confidence in Him.
Like Esther, we must live with the autonomy and freedom that comes from living in the favor of GOD.
Regardless of the circumstances that come into your life, believe in the supernatural favor of GOD. In spite of how irremediable things may seem, GOD can lift you up, because one truth that we can forget amid difficulties is that He is greater than any problem.
If your life is in His hands, the light of the LORD is shining on you.
Dear LORD, we put our life and our plans in Your hands, because we know that you can rise and that You are greater than any difficulty. In the name of JESÚS. Amen and Amen.
