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 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 God’s favor. God’s favor is His supernatural blessing and kindness toward you. The New Testament word for favor is “grace.”
Favor Brings Ability
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 answered.
God pours out His favor on all His children. His favor provides for your every need. Every blessing of God is an expression of His favor. You can’t earn His favor; it is a gift from Him.
You Aren’t Worthy
Many of us have a hard time accepting the favor of God. We feel unworthy of His blessings. The truth is, we are. No one is worthy of God’s grace. No matter how hard you try, you will never be good enough for God’s favor. The wonderful news is that God’s favor is not dependent on your worthiness.
One of the most remarkable aspects of God’s favor is found right in the middle of today’s verse. God’s favor lasts a lifetime.
For a Lifetime
God’s favor is not for a moment or 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 God’s favor is still flowing over you even during the hard times.
Take a few moments and confess God’s favor on you today. As His child, you walk in the favor and grace of God. No matter how long you live, God’s favor would still be new every morning, and His grace would still bring His blessing throughout your 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 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.
