I read this by Bishop Dag Heward Mills, this morning and decided to share it with you. It totally ministered to me and I totally needed it.
We had a fasting and prayer recently and we prayed for favour. I started to see the hands of the Lord moving. So this message this morning is a confirmation. I pray it blesses and encourages you also.
REMEMBER TO ASK FOR FAVOUR WHEN PRAYING!
by Dag Heward-Mills
READ: Genesis 29:15-31
Psalm 84:11, For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly
My dear friend, have you ever watched a soccer match without knowing who was really playing? As you watched for a while, you began to notice the side that was losing. Most of the time, we tend to instinctively support the losing team. As they say, “People support the underdogs.”
That support you have for the underdogs is a God-given instinct to support the disadvantaged.
Today, if you are in a disadvantaged situation, be it known unto you that God is on your side. The Lord is helping you right now! It may seem as though you are disfavoured, but that is what provokes God.
The Bible says very clearly that when God saw that Leah was not liked, He compensated for it by showing divine favour.
Genesis 29:31, And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren
God opened the womb of Leah and gave her children. Suddenly, Leah was a favoured person. She was the only one who could bring children into the family.
Dear brother or sister, perhaps you consider yourself to be in a disdvantaged position. That is the reason why Jesus is giving you extra favour. He is going to change your misfortunes. You don’t have to be discouraged. Today, remember these words: the Lord’s favour is upon your life!!
I PRAY THAT THE GOOD LORD WILL POUR OUT HIS UNMERITED FAVOUR UPON YOU AND IN EVERYTHING YOU DO IN JESUS NAME.
Be blessed always, 😇🙏😘 and this is…
