But the angel said to her,"Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. Luke 1:30
I hear the sound of the abundance of rain 1 Kings 18:41 (There was a drought in the land for three years. Elijah went to King Ahab and announced the rain. The fact was there was no cloud in the sky when he said this. Elijah could sense long before it was coming, he knew deep inside to hear the sound of God's favor.
-----Learn to walk by faith not sight
-----Just need faith the size of a mustard seed
-----God is full of abundance and favor
-----God can turn any situation around
-----Turn your darkest hour into your brightest
-----No situation is too hard when we believe, only need a size of a pea.
God has our set times for deliverence, God has our set time for favor. Don't get discouraged, its on it way. God has already lined up the right people and the right opportunities. He gives all the right breaks we need. Its all planned out. When those negative thoughts come, telling yourself its never going to change. Learn to announce it.....like Elijah had done. Feel it deep inside. I can hear the sound of restoration. Have the feeling its going to be alright. Learn to walk by faith not by sight.
Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah went to him and said, This is what the Lord says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die, you will not recover. Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, "Remember O Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes," And Hezekiah wept bitterly. 2 Kings 20:1 & 20:2
(Then according to 2 Kings 20:4) Before Isaiah left the temple or the building, God spoke to him again and told him to return to Hezekiah. God heard his prayers and tears, I have changed my mind. I not going to give him another year, not another 5 years, you tell him I'm going to add 15 years to his life.
-----God is into increase not decrease
-----His favor came when Hezekiah believed and expected God's goodness, God made an adjustment.
-----He didn't give up and accept defeat. (When your in difficult times remind God of what you're done...call in your seeds. God, I have a history with you. Every time you go to church your storing up mercy for you and your family. You took time to honor him first. It makes a difference when you put God first in your life. This is what Hezekiah was doing.
-----With faith we can change God's mind.
----Look back and remind God.
----Start expecting God's goodness.
Be like Hezekiah and take off those grave clothes, put on faith, praise, and thanksgiving. Thank God for your hour of deliverence. Take off the negative attitude....like this is not going to happen. Put on a attitude of faith. Thank him ahead for your time of deliverence. Do this and you will see God's blessings and favor in your life and live in victory.
