Favor

So I have chosen this passage from Psalm 90 as my verse of the week, because it reminds me that it is never a bad thing to ask for the Lord’s favor (read: blessing) with anything we undertake – especially with our work! I don’t know about you, but I try to remember to ask God for knowledge, wisdom and discernment on a regular basis (I forget to ask sometimes, but He still sees fit to give them to me anyhow.) In addition, when it comes to any work that I do – whether it is on a paid or volunteer basis – I want His favor to cover it, and anything that I undertake to be established (I think of something being set and fixed, like wet cement drying and solidifying) by His Hand.

After all, why not ask for the Lord’s favor? I want all that the Lord has for me, and if He’s willing to bless me with HIs favor, and to also establish the work of my hands (as the psalmist says), then I’m all in! 🙂

      1. Thank you, Efua! Is there some way that I may be prayinig for you? I remember that you said that the Lord gave you the wisdom that you were seeking about a particular matter (this was several months ago). I am happy to continue to pray for wisdom if you like, but let me know if there is another prayer request that you have.

        God bless you!

    1. It just occurred to me that praying for favor doesn’t always mean that things will go smoothly. In fact, some of the most spiritually favored people in the Bible (Job, Daniel, David, John, Jesus, among others) dealt with one big challenge after another. I suppose that if we ask for His blessing, then we should also be prepared in our hearts to shoulder any burden that He may (or may not) allow to come our way.

  1. Oh, my, what timing! I’m to leave in a half hour to go to church and sign a song in the Christmas program with the choir. I sign, of course, with my hands. I’m praying, first of all, that I don’t mess up. I want to be a blessing for those watching and listening. And, I’ve invited a new acquaintance, with her 15-year-old daughter. I so want God to bless them.
