I heard, “Now is the Time of the Lord’s Favor”
“Do you know, Beloved, that you walk in My Favor? Not just some of the time but ALL of the time. You do not have to “find favor” with your Abba Father.
“You have found favor forever through your new birth in Christ. My favor is a GIFT. My Favor is GRACE. My Favor is LIFE. All good and perfect gifts come down from the Father of Lights.
“I AM always leaning toward you to extend My Favor. It is in My Nature to bless you. The King extends His Golden Scepter to you, My Bride.
“My Hand reaches out to bless you, to give Myself away and to daily LOAD you with benefits. You live in the Light of My Face and My Favor shines upon you continually. The scriptures have been fulfilled in your ears, Dear One.
“Every request from your mouth will be received with FAVOR. Yes, My Child. It is the acceptable year of The LORD. All My Gracious Words shall be fulfilled.
“Behold, now is the Time of Favor; now is the Day of Salvation! The whole world shall see and know and be amazed at the Favor upon you, My Child.
“They shall marvel and KNOW that you have been with Me. And My Favor shall be upon you and take you into the Places I have prepared for you from the beginning of Time and NOTHING shall be able stop you.”
FAVOR: Strong’s Hebrew 5485: disposed to, inclined, favorable towards, leaning towards to share benefit, grace. Freely extended to give Himself away to people (because He is “always leaning toward them”). Reaching (inclining) to people because He is disposed to bless (be near) them. (HELPS word studies)
