Favour

Miracle

By Pastor Ayo Elijah

"For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1: 37 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Luke 1: 26-38, Matt 7.

You are going to hit a season in your life where you will run out of your own human limitation. You need to believe in a miracle before it comes. The advent season teaches us that God is a God that is amazingly interested in your everyday life. Real wisdom and knowledge come from God. Don’t be a critical people but you can be a critical thinker because at a point, you will need a miracle. When you don’t understand it, you begin to give credit to the universe for what God has done. Miracle is an inexplainable anomaly that is orchestrated by the eternal. A miracle is when God makes something happen that couldn’t happen, shouldn’t happen and wouldn’t happen unless he made it happen. Sometimes we get miracles and we don’t realize that we are getting it. 

Three prerequisites for miracle.

⁃ Failure: There would be no need for a miracle if there is no problem or if it’s a problem you can solve. 

⁃ Favour: Unmerited favour; it’s a preferential treatment you don’t deserve. Favour is what God uses to get what he has for you. It doesn’t come at anyone’s expense. If you don’t get favour from anyone, then you don’t need it from them. Favour is when God puts flavour in your life. 

⁃ Faith: 

Miracles exists! You don’t earn a miracle, it only comes from God. God gives it to you.

Favour

By Apostle Mike Efezino

"And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men." Luke 2: 52 (NKJV).

Bible Readings: Luke 1: 28, Genesis 18: 1, Acts 2: 47, Psalms 41: 11, Psalms 5: 12, Psalms 35: 27,  Psalms 102: 13, Psalms 106: 4, Proverbs 8: 35, Proverbs 11: 27, Genesis 18: 1-14, Hebrews 11: 1, John 17: 4, John 17: 11.

Never abuse the favour of God on your life. When you have to grow in favour with men, you have to honour. Dishonour will lock you up. First preference of being favoured is that God chose you. Favour is a set up for increase in your life. It is a set up for God releasing things into your life. Favour is something that you can grow. You can increase favour and so if you can increase it, you can diminish it. Everybody has different levels of favour. The difference is honour. Don't abuse your relationship with God. 

Benefits of Favour

⁃ Favour brings about increase to the church.

⁃ Your enemies will not triumph over you. Anything that causes you to be less than you are is your enemy.

⁃ Favour is part of your protection. 

⁃ Favour opens doors for you. 

⁃ Favour gives you insights. 

⁃ Favour will cause people to do things for you.

⁃ Favour causes you to chill and not worry. 

⁃ Favour is directly connected to wisdom. Wisdom carries favour. Obedience to the word of God carries favour.

Your daily bread is your daily assignment and when you honour God by asking him for your daily assignment, he is the one that pays you. It's not how much you've got but how much God you have. The greatest thing that can happen to you is when you can hear God. If you don't listen and obey God, he doesn't talk to you. When you obey God, you are honouring Him.

If you want God to stay in your side, don't be celebrating other people's downfall. Stay out of people's business. When you celebrate someone's failure, you are seeking mischief. When you honour someone, they rise to the level of the honour you have spoken concerning them. When favour is on you life, you see a finished work.

The people that God brought into your life, God brought them for you to minister to them and while you do that, favour locates you. People come into your life for a reason. Everything that is found in you life is a manifestation of Jesus Christ. Everything you need is produced out of Jesus. The word of God is the seed that will produce whatever it is that you need.

Giving is to activate the promise of God for your life. It's relationship that releases the favour of God.

Faith that provokes favour. Part 2

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favoured one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God." Luke 1: 28-30 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Luke 1: 26-38, 1 Timothy 6: 20, Genesis 18: 1-2, Genesis 14: 13, Hebrews 13: 2, Hebrews 11: 1, Proverbs 18: 22, Psalms 30: 6, Psalms 30: 5, Ezekiel 36: 8-12.

Because of you, God is doing some things. Things will begin to happen because of you.

What provokes favour is worship. Even in the midst of every situation, when you drop it down and worship God, it provokes heaven.

Abraham was able to discern which package carried favour for his destiny. It's not every one that comes that is a carrier of your favour. Are you doing anything that is provoking your favour or will you miss out?

When you have faith, God is able to do more than you can even think. Let your faith cause heaven to come down and change the status quo and make you the first. Your faith should bring favour your way that makes you a reference point. It take faith to be favoured. Sometimes, favour shows up in packages that you don't recognize.

When favour comes, it manifests in a few ways: miracle children, miracle marriages, miracle prosperity and also, favour brings you out of shame.

Prayers

⁃ Eze 36vs 8-12. Father increase NextGen in every area.

⁃ Every financial drought/ dryness over my life, let it come to an end now. 

⁃ Lord fast forward me to my blessings. Everything that will turn my life for good, let it begin to spring forth.

⁃ Lord let it rain in my life. Let the former and the latter rain be released this month.

Faith that provokes favour

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"So it was, that while he was serving as priest before God in the order of his division, according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. And the whole multitude of the people was praying outside at the hour of incense. Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John." Luke 1: 8-13 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Luke 1: 5-13, Hebrews 11: 1, Romans 5: 5, Job 14: 14, Psalms 126. 

Favour: means unmerited blessings, undeserved , preferred, acceptance, grace, mercy. Favour is when you don't earn or work for it but it came. 
Faith: is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
Fear not: means that what you have been praying for has been answered by God. 
Angel means: sent one, messenger.


When God sends you as a pastor, you are referred to as the angel of the house that you are pastoring. There might be one particular area that seem like God hasn't answered; that you have been praying about now it has been answered. Your prayer has been answered! What you are expecting and waiting for has been sent.

The forgotten prayer that you prayed at a point has provoked God to answer as you pray kingdom prayers. Whatever happens from now, favour follows you. You favour that has been forgotten and not manifested coming out. What you have forgotten about, God will bring it to you. God will bring back the things that you were excepting.

As long as there is expectation, faith never dies.

Prayers

⁃ My story must change to glory today
⁃ Whatever word that I need, lord release it unto me.
⁃ Lord, let your word that is coming my way tonight, let it bring healing into my body soul and spirit.
⁃ Lord as your word comes tonight, let it bring light into every area of my life for the rest of this month.
⁃ Every enemy/ satanic agent going after every prophetic word for my life, let the fire of the Holy Ghost answer for me.
⁃ As this fasting and prayers come to an end today, I cover every word with the blood of Jesus.
⁃ Lord, let your blood cover the seed/ egg of my destiny.
⁃ Life will emanate in NGWC from east, west, north and south. 
⁃ Everyone that is connected to this commission, father we command life in them. 
⁃ Anything in NGWC, and its members that doesn't carry life, let the cross of Jesus bring life to it right now.
