Daily Devotional – 9/25/14 “Agree with your favor!”

You’ve been favored by God but you can’t figure out why your favor ain’t working? Well that’s because you’ve yet to agree with your favor! Chile what is wrong with you. Don’t you know God doesn’t favor anything that isn’t worthy? Don’t you know God doesn’t favor anyone He hasn’t already found fit enough to handle the assignment? Haven’t you realized yet the potential you have when you open your mouth for good things? Don’t you see the folks you encourage when you’re not even trying? I bet you don’t even see the places your feet are walking in do you? You don’t even see the doors that are opening that you haven’t even made it too yet, have you? And all you have to do is agree with the favor that has already been poured into your life. Baby, God didn’t need your permission to favor you; He simply needs you to agree with it. No, God doesn’t need your approval but He does need your agreement that you’ll go where He’ll send you even though you might not know the location or the folk. God needs you to talk when He tells you even though you might not like the subject or the crowd. God needs you to move when He tells you too even though you might not like the moves nor the music and He needs you to encourage when He tell you too even though you may not know the people or the circumstance and may not feel like it. But you can’t do it if you’ve yet to agree with the favor that God has appointed to your life. Oh and get this … You also can’t do it if you’re still straddling the fence of the world.

Yea, God has anointed your tongue but you can’t use it for bad on Saturday and then expect God to consecrate it for good on Sunday and then say you agree with your favor. It ain’t happening. It may look like its happening but it ain’t. (Get it together!). God has given us favor that can turn thangs around for us, if we agree with it but we have to first agree with it. Ephesians 1:11 says, “Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.” Simply saying, we have received favor. [You’ll get it in a minute.] All I am saying is, agree with your favor and watch things start to change for the good. When you agree with your favor, you no longer feel like you’re down and out. When you agree with your favor depression no longer resides in your residence, sickness comes but you’ll wear it well, death will show up in your family but you’ll grieve and not suffer and financial troubles will no longer drown you because you can now swim in the deep end. Oh, when you agree with your favor your story changes because you won’t be able to tell it the same for you are no longer telling it as the victim but as victorious! When you agree with your favor, your praise changes because you won’t be able to worship the same. When you agree with your favor, you won’t even hate your enemy the same because everything about you changes! You don’t have to believe me; try it for yourself. You’ll see! When you agree with your favor, favor removes the labor!
