The Favor of God Multiplied To You

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
2 Peter 1:2

If you desire to walk in a greater measure of God’s favor, this verse says that grace, which is the undeserved favor of God, and peace, can be multiplied to you. In the Hebrew, the word peace is “shalom”. Its definition includes wholeness, health, safety and provision. So, when you walk in divine favor and peace, you will walk in blessings in every area of your life.

But how does the undeserved favor and shalom of God increase in your life? Well, first, it’s not by working for it. The Bible says that it comes as your knowledge of Jesus and His finished work increases. It comes as you learn more about and believe that through Jesus’ one sacrifice at the cross, God removed all your sins, gave you His righteousness as a gift and put you in Christ to enjoy everything Jesus has. God’s favor is multiplied in your life when you simply believe “that the favor of God that is on Christ is also on you because of what Jesus’ work at the cross has accomplished.

So, today, you don’t have to struggle for favor. All you must do is release it by speaking forth God’s word in faith. Wherever you’re going to confess that “God’s favor surrounds you as with a shield” (Psalm 5:12). As you speak favor over your life continually out of a revelation of Jesus’ finished work, you will see more of it being released.

I can attest personally that the favor of God will affect your life in a powerful way on your job and in whatever you do. I have seen God show favor to me in pay raises and promotions many times. Every job I’ve had, I’ve always declared the favor of God by faith and watched Him do wonders in my personal situation on my job.

Today, in your workplace or at home, begin to declare the favor of God by faith. Expect to receive preferential treatment wherever you are. Say, “I am surrounded with the favor of God because of Jesus’ finished work. I have favor before God and man”. And see God’s favor work for you. What a powerful truth to know.
