Today’s Scripture: Psalm 102:13
You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favour her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
‘Now or when?’ This is a question that quietly plagues the lives of many Christians. The Bible is laden with precious promises: promises of health and healing, promises of prosperity and deliverance, most of which seem out of the reach of many. Not because we do not believe, but because we are not sure if they are available to us now, or in some uncertain, distant future. Is the favour of God available and potent for you now and present in your current situation? The answer is yes!
The Bible, in our opening scripture, boldly declares that the set time to favour you has come. In other words, the set time to favour you is now! God’s promises are Yea and Amen in Christ Jesus. They are not for tomorrow, they are for you today. God’s favour is for you today. Reach out in faith and appropriate it. Do not let fear, anxiety and the seeming uncertainty of what tomorrow holds rob you of the possibilities available to you today in Christ Jesus. God has arisen. He has had mercy on you. He has favoured you. Do not see yourself any less than what you are – favoured. Does this mean all your challenges in life would be completely obliterated? No. But it does mean that God will be with you through them all.
Where others are falling, you will rise. Where others are failing, you will succeed. You are the favoured of God. You will not need to break your back to meet your basic needs and to fulfil God’s assignment for your life. Like Esther, you have been saved for such a time as this. You will find favour before great and small. So live with a constant air of expectation. Refuse to be taken in by the seeming unmet or unfulfilled desires of the past. Expect the favour of God to come through for you, now, and always. Now is the time for favour. Take it, in Jesus’ name.
Memorise & Meditate:
“In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2
Prayer & Confession:
Strengthen my faith in You, Lord. I refuse to be moved by my circumstances. I am favoured. I walk in the reality of God’s promise to me. The set time to favour me has come, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
