We are all looking to find favor in our lives in some way. Often we forget. that as believers that we are blessed with His favor. It is grace afforded us everyday from the Hebrew chen, or hen pronounced like khane, with a guttural sound, okay, grace or favor, but I like word studies. Just one more, Greek charis, meaning grace, where we get our word charisma.
Here are a few verses to get you started.
Noah, however, found favor in the eyes of the LORD. Genesis 6:8
My lord, if now I have found favor in your sight, please do not pass your servant by. Genesis 18:3 angels, Jesus, visit Abraham..
This very thing that you have spoken I will do, for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name. Exodus 33:17
Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield. Psalm 5:12
May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us– yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17
For those who find me find life and receive favor from the LORD. Proverbs 8:35
He who finds a wife. finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22
A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold. Proverbs 22:1
…..to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; Isaiah 61:2, the beauty for ashes passage.
You gave me life and favor, and your intervention watched over my spirit. Job 10:12
To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord. Luke 4:19
In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you, 2 Corinthians 6:2
And even our blessed Lord obtained favor….And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Luke 2:52
So favor bring us grace, deliverance, healing, and restoration. It is on families, marriages and businesses as we grow in Christ and are led and taught by the Spirit. There is other favor in Proverbs, where everyone wants to curry favor or get gifts, that is not what God intends, and in Acts where the disciples find favor with the people being saved and added to the church.
May He favor you as you grow in grace.
