We Can All Get Preferential Treatment

psalm 30 5

Psalm 30:5 (NIV)

For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

 

Most of the time, we think, “Oh, God’s got bigger things to deal with than me and my little problems.  He’s not interested in what’s bothering me.”  That is simply not true.  You are God’s biggest deal.  He wants to make you an example of His goodness.  When you keep God in first place in your heart, when you honor Him with your life, God puts something on you that causes you to stand out from the rest of the crowd.  God gives you something that give you an advantage.  It causes good breaks and opportunities to be attracted to you.  It’s called the favor of God!

The word favor means to assist, to provide with advantages, to receive preferential treatment.  The favor of God will cause you to be promoted even though you might not have been the most qualified.  God’s favor will cause your children to get the best teachers in school.  It will help you find the best deals at the mall.  God’s favor will put you at the right place at the right time.

God is saying to you what He said to Abraham, “I’m going to assist you.  I going to provide you with advantages.  I’m going to cause you to receive preferential treatment.”

All you have to do is believe it and receive it for today and for all the days of your life.

That does not mean that God is going to guarantee you an easy life.  No one is guaranteed that.  Everyone is going to go through seasons in the valley, but you have to know and believe that those tough times will not last.  If you have a relationship with God and have faith that He will bless your life, He will.  It is that simple and there is no reason to complicate that.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
