When people ask me how I’m doing, I respond, “I am blessed and highly favored. I’m the most blessed man I know.” Now please understand that these blessings and favor are not the result of me being something special; it’s all about God. The amazing favor is on my life because of a covenant I cut with God almost 60 years ago…and His faithfulness to keep His promises.
I was just 11 years old the night my father strangled me and left me for dead in our home. I awoke in both literal and figurative darkness. There was no hope…no possible way out…no chance of even surviving, let alone being blessed. Then Jesus came! Everything changed that night as I listened to His voice.
Have you been in a place of complete darkness and despair? Maybe you or someone you love is in that place today. I know what it feels like because I was there. But when I claimed God’s promises, everything changed.
We have accomplished unprecedented things for God through our ministry together, but that is not because of us…it is ALL the favor of God. We’ve seen truly unprecedented blessings like the largest prayer movement in history, now more than 68,000,000 strong. There has never been a Christian ministry with the level of influence with the leadership of Israel that God has given us.
It is all about Him, and He alone deserves all the praise and glory. But we get to be part of His work. And today I’m asking you to join hands with me in a special way and claim this promise of Jesus: “If you receive a prophet as one who speaks for God, you will be given the same reward as a prophet. And if you receive righteous people because of their righteousness, you will be given a reward like theirs” (Matthew 10:41).
I am inviting you to enter into a covenant of blessing with me. Just as God’s favor has been released on my life, I have heard a voice in my spirit that declares that same favor will flow to my partners who join me in agreement. What I sense in my spirit is that your life is about to be transformed by the power of God’s favor because of your love and care for His Chosen People. When you bless what God wants to have blessed, you turn His head and move His arm to action in your life.
Every day of my life I wear a F.O.G. (Favor of God) wristband as a reminder to myself to expect God to do great things and to seek His face. That favor is not just for me. It is for every Believer who will step forward in faithful obedience. The favor of God will change every part of your life—every area and sphere of influence that you have. Principalities and powers will be bound and your assignment from God will know favor and blessing as never before. Your family, your church, your business, your health…these are going to be amazing as God hears our voices and responds to our faith.
