“And David came to Saul, and stood before him; and he loved him greatly, and he became his amour bearer” (1Sam 16:21) A part from delivering you from heavy ministerial burdens, divine favour can also prevent a downward trend. After leading the Israelites from Egypt, they cried to him in the wilderness for meat. In V5 he pleaded: “And if thou deal thus with me, kill me I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour in thy sight, and let me not see wretchedness.” God’s favour can prevent you from seeing or experiencing the negative fallouts of a downturn. Is failure, disappointment and shame staring you in the face? Call on the Lord to arrest that negative trend by His favour. You shall not be put to shame. Put your trust in the Lord and with your whole heart ask for His favour. He will answer you this season.

Another possibility from favour is that it can bring the poor before Kings. Favour can bring the least before the greatest even as the qualified is sidelined. David hailed from a poor family in Israel. As a youth, David minded his father’s little flock. But through favour, he got a job as an armour bearer of the King. David got favour from the King. When you are favoured, ideal candidate for a position can be set aside just for you to occupy it. (O.H)

PRAYER LINE: This year the Lord will bring you before Kings. You shall occupy a position you are not qualified for. God’s favour will cause you to be given an attractive job that your academic qualifications do not match.
