It is exciting to know that this is the month of favour and with excitement I would like to welcome everyone to this month of favour. Our texts are taken from Psalm 30:5 and Luke 2: 52. “For his anger lasts only a moment but his favour last a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5 Favour generally does not depend on merit and would always draw opposition and enmity. The favour of man is limited; it often depends on circumstances and the mood of the benefactor. On the other hand, the favour of God lasts for a life time, sometimes beyond (1 Chronicles 17:10-14). When a man finds favour before the Lord, doors of favour before men open, even before his enemies (Prov. 16:7). God’s favour terminates sorrow and restores joy, replaces frustrations with breakthrough and turns confusion into clarity.  His favour abolishes every form of barrenness and brings in fruitfulness and multiplications. The Lord’s favour ushers in peace because the Most High subdues our enemies in such a way that wars and struggles become history to us. This was the case for King Solomon who throughout the period of his reign had no wars to fight because he found favour before the King of Kings, quite unlike other Jewish kings. King Solomon’s fellow contemporary kings would rather bring him gifts than fight him (1 Chronicles 9:22-24) In this month of favour, the Lord who has remembered you will give you an unmerited favour. May HIS favour lift you above your dreams and last beyond your life time. May HIS favour give you peace and make kings bring tribute to you. May HE terminate every sorrow in your heart and keep you rejoicing. “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men.” Luke 2:52. May you grow in this favour both before the Great King and men? Amen.   Shalom
