Today’s Promise

God’s Favor Lasts a Lifetime

Psalm 30:5

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.


God’s Favor is On You

God’s favor is flowing over you today. As His child, you will never outlive His grace and favor working in your life.

As a follower of Christ, you live in the favor of God. God’s favor is His supernatural blessing and kindness toward you. The New Testament version of favor is “grace.” 

What is God’s Favor?

God’s favor gives you the ability to be and do things you could never do on your own. His favor invites you to come boldly into His presence and fellowship with Him. Because of His favor, you know your prayers are heard and answers.

God pours out His favor on all His children. His favor provides for your every need. Every blessing of God is evidence of His favor.  You can’t earn His favor; it is a gift of grace.

God’s Favor is Sometimes Hard to Accept

Many of us have a hard time accepting the favor of God. We feel unworthy of God’s favor. The truth is, we are. No one is worthy of God’s grace. No matter how hard you might try, you could never be good enough for God’s favor. 

One of the most amazing aspects of God’s favor is found right in the middle of today’s verse. God’s favor lasts a lifetime.

God’s Favor is Forever

God’s favor is not for a moment or for an hour. God’s favor is forever. You will never run out of God’s favor. Every morning is a reminder that God’s favor is flowing over you.

Sure, there may be difficult times, but knowing that God’s favor lasts a lifetime is a reminder that even during the hard times, God’s favor is flowing over you.

Take a few moments today and celebrate God’s favor on you. As His child, you walk in the favor and grace of God today. Even if you were to live over one hundred years old, God’s favor would still rest on you, and His grace will still bring His blessing every day.

Look at that promise again.

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. – Psalm 30:5

Make these confessions.

  • I live in the favor of God.
  • God’s favor toward me is renewed every morning.
  • I don’t deserve His favor, but He pours it out on me every day.
  • I will never outlive God’s favor on me.
  • Every blessing is evidence of God’s favor in my life.

In Jesus name,
Amen
