TOPIC: FAVOUR, THE FACILITATOR OF PROPHECY
Scripture : Psalm 44: 3. For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! The believers advantage called favour is a facilitator of every prophecy that you have received or will received! Today we we be looking at how favour facilitate the fulfilment of prophecy.
Who is a facilitator?
According Merriam Webster dictionary a facilitator is someone or something that facilitates something; especially : someone who helps to bring about an outcome (such as learning, productivity, or communication) by providing indirect or unobtrusive assistance, guidance, or supervision
We can deduce from this definition that a facilitator is someone who helps in ensuring the outcome of the prophecy of your life is actualized. And that is what favour does! It insist that every prophecy hanging over your life becomes a reality.
The Bible is replete with stories of men whom there is prophecy over their lives(Exo.3:8, Num. 14:8, Deut. 31:20). And it is favour that midwife the fulfilment of such prophecies. How it does it is by providing a bridge between you and your prophecy.
How does favour facilitate fulfilment of prophecy?
1. By bringing the Hand of God(PS.44:3): The right Hand of God is power (1Pet. 3:22). And we all need power to fulfill purpose on earth. Besides, the Hand of God pulls people and compels them to like you.
Although everybody must not like you but those who are connected to your destiny must like you, value you and support you.
Like Jesus, while bearing the cross, Simon was compelled to help Him out! This is because Jesus is an embodiment of favour (Matt. 27: 32). In life there are those who God will compelled to help you but it will only happens by favour.
2. By bringing the Arm of God (Ps. 44:3): The right hand of God is different from His arm! Whereas His right hand represents God’s power, His arm represents His backing! The Arm of God signifies His backing/support. His approval. And when you enjoy God’s backing, your requests are not easily turned down.
You will recall that God gave a prophecy to Abraham in Gen. 15:13-14 of how his children will be coming out of Egypt with great substance. That prophecy could not have been realized without the force of favour! So when it was time for the prophecy to be fulfilled, the Lord introduced favour, such that no one could turn down their requests.
Exodus 12: 36. And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
You will notice from this scripture that they couldn’t have received what they wanted if there was no favour. And that means the prophecy would have still been hanging!
Beloved, that prophecy on your life needs the force of favour to make it work. In-between the time God gave you the prophecy and it’s fulfilment is a gap that must be filled. And that is where favour is needed. There are things you need to fulfill destiny with but they are not there yet, apply for favour.
So, if you sense delay in prophecy fulfillment, It is either something is blocking your favour or you are not ready for it!
3. By bringing the Light of God’s countenance:
Psalm 44: 3. For they got…. the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
The light of God’s countenance brings means grace for visibility! It is all that you need to come out of obscurity to limelight, from the background to the frontline.
It is what shatters darkness. There are those who Satan kept in a hole like Jeremiah was kept in a dungeon(Jer.38:6-13), so that no one will see them and help them! But when the light of God shines in your direction, you will come out of that dungeon.
Beloved, you must be seen before you can be shown favour. Some of you lack favour simply because you are covered. But I have a good news for you, you are coming out of that dungeon. The evil blanket the enemy used to cover you for a long time catch fire now in the name of Jesus.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! The only life that guarantees heaven is Jesus. Give your heart to Jesus Christ today.
Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord take me out of every obscurity to where I can become visible to my world in Jesus name
– I prophesy the release of God’s arm upon your life in Jesus name.
– I decree every satanic blanket covering your life be set ablaze in the name of Jesus.
Assignment : Re-examine your life and be sure nothing is covering your life from receiving God’s blessings.
