Psalm 90:17 ESV – Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!
Dictionary.com defines establish as such: to found, institute, build, or bring into being on a firm or stable basis
God is all about firm foundations. He is about stability. He is about us being able to trust Him. In this same manner, He desires for whatever we build or create to mimic who He is. In other words, our lives should mimic the character of God. Isn’t that powerful? God wants whatever you create or build to be firm and stable.
Your hands have been anointed to bring stability into your own life and the lives of others. Now the faith challenge kicks in where your life looks nothing like stability and a firm foundation. However, through the power of God, you can build the life that God desires for you to build. It takes time, faith, and patience but we will see the works of our hands established? What else does it take at the core? Favor.
Many people pray for money and things but let me tell you what you really need. You need favor. You don’t need to pray for money. You can go get a job or start a business and make money. You don’t even need to be a Christian to make money. However, favor is from above. Favor is where God opens up things on our behalf that we can not do on our own.
You don’t need favor to buy a house. You need favor so that the house that you get comes with upgrades and benefits you didn’t even ask for. You don’t need favor to get a job. You need favor so that the job that you get has what you need to climb the success ladder that you know God has for you. You don’t need favor to get married. You need favor so that the Lord leads you to the right spouse so that the house that you make with that significant other is filled with joy and peace.
Favor opens up paths that you can’t see in the natural. You need the favor of God. It’s His favor that’s on you. The same glory and anointing and power that’s on Him because He is God is resting upon you and the works of your hands.
Why don’t we see it happening in many believers’ lives? They don’t believe it. They read about it. They see it in the Word. However, the power is only activated when you believe in what you read. You’ve got to believe it to the point that you walk in what you believe. You believe that favor is on you so you act like it, walk like it, and you talk like it.
