Anything is possible to those who found favour with God. Before God will do what looks impossible in anyone’s life – He will first release favour.
When God was about to cause Mary to conceive impossible pregnancy that will deliver impossible Son, He located her to inform her that she is highly favoured because God is with her and she is blessed among other women. Luke 1:26-30.
Favour of God can cause you to achieve what looks impossible. Favour simply means God’s decision to demonstrate His interest through your life. In other words, anywhere you go, anything you do and anyone you meet – God places a mark on you that says – I AM interested in this one.
I like what the Bible says in Psalm 33:12MSG, “Blessed is the country with God for God; blessed are the people He’s put in His will.” God’s favour upon your life is a confirmation that He has put you in His will. It means Heaven has noticed and chosen you to represent the Greatness of God.
Favour is winning the heart of God – It is God’s demonstration of His personal commitment to your life. Favour shows God is with you, just like the Angel told Mary – and with God in your life, nothing shall be impossible for you to achieve.
Favour means you have been empowered to prosper where others cannot. Naphtali brims with blessings, spills over with God’s blessings as he take possession of the sea and southland (Deuteronomy 33:23). When you are favoured by God, you are empowered to prosper, no matter the circumstance around you.
How do You Know the Mark of Favour is Upon You?
God takes responsibility in your life of what others use their own ability to accomplish. When the mark of favour is upon you – It is no longer about your effort and ability anymore – It is now about God’s responsibility.
Mary said, “How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? But the angel answered, Mary, it is about the Holy Ghost coming upon you and the power of the Highest hover over you” (Luke 1:34-35 emphasis mine).
Every time God wants to do what no man can do in your life – He will not need the help of any man. Anything a man can do is at the level of man. But anything God can do is at the level of God. So, what do you prefer? What man can do or what God can do?
Now, God is saying to Mary, this is not about knowing a man – Lets take man out of this operation. It is beyond what man can do. It is not about knowing a man, it is about receiving the Holy Ghost coming upon you.
Do you remember what Jesus told the disciples, “You will receive Power when the Holy Ghost has come upon you” (Acts 1:8). The angel said, Mary, “It is about the Power of the Highest hovering over your life through His favour that this impossible will take place.
For Mary, she need to believe and accept that God would not need man’s ability to help her birth the impossible. Favour of God takes the place of man’s limited ability to replace it with God’s unlimited power.
What are you seeing as impossible in your life? If you are a child of God, His favour is already upon your life. You need to accept that your own ability or others cannot meet the demand. Release yourself to the Holy Spirit. He will help you.
