All of the favor of Christ is ours based on our placement in Him, not on our performance. What if a key to favor was being rooted and grounded in His true nature and simply standing?
Shadrach, Mishach and Abed-Nego experienced this kind of favor. They didn’t bow down and worship the king’s idols, they knew beforehand what their response would be. They were committed to standing in grace and favor no matter what the circumstances. They ended up in a fiery furnace and Jesus showed up.
Often, favor isn’t about being delivered from difficulties, it’s about Jesus being present with us in the midst of them.
+ What is your predetermined response and expectation of who God will be for you, to you and in you?
+ Is there an upgrade needed in your relationship with Him to step into that?
+ What previous perceptions or mindsets need to be laid aside and what new ones does God have for you instead?
