Let the weak say I am strong and let the poor say I am rich.
Sounds paradoxical to speak against the grid of present circumstance and yet one of the universal laws that operate indiscriminately. “The law of attraction” ~ unequivocally states that your thoughts and utterance align the universe to manifest what’s in your dominant thoughts.
Perhaps you believe that life is a series of isolated circumstances that have nothing to do with your thoughts and utterances.
Yet it’s not so, we eat the fruit of our confession.
I suggest that it’s time to start rewiring your thoughts for a positive outcome. A positive mind produces positive emotions and positive emotions trigger positive actions, in fact, a renewed mind transcends negativity and sees opportunity in chaos.
Be a transformed non-conformist.
“The praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved (Ephesians 1:6).”
The word “accepted” in the scripture above is “charitoō” (Greek), and it means to grace; that is, to be imbued with special honour; make accepted or be highly favoured. So, the scripture should actually read, “…He has made us highly favoured in the beloved.”
You are wonderfully made and predisposed for a blessed life. Someone in Scripture who got such a description was Mary. Luke 1:28 says, “And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured….”_ And that’s exactly what God is telling you; you’re blessed and highly favoured.
Mary was blessed and highly favoured because she was to carry Jesus in her womb through the Word. Today, you’re carrying Jesus in your spirit through the Word. Glory to God! His Word isn’t just in you, His Word is your life, for you’re born of the Word. What a life He’s given us!
What does it mean to be favoured? It means that you’re blessed beyond measure; you’re blessed by God even when you don’t seem to deserve it. In essence, look beyond your ability; look beyond whether or not you qualify; God Himself is your ability and your sufficiency. That’s what it says in 2 Corinthians 3:5, “Our sufficiency is of Him.”
Being highly favoured means everything you do prospers. Even when others fail or make losses, you excel, because you’re sponsored by the Spirit; he orders your steps. Even if you were surrounded by critics and detractors, it’ll make no difference because you’re God’s man or woman, piloted by grace.
As God’s favour is manifested on your behalf, doors and opportunities which can’t be humanly explained are open to you. The Bible says, “And God is able to make all grace (every favour and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance…” (2 Corinthians 9:8 AMPC). This is God’s desire for you. Psalm 5:12 says _“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.”_ Everywhere and every time, throughout this year, be conscious that you’re blessed and highly favoured.
I am divinely favoured and positioned for the glorious life. I am strong.
I am prosperous.
I walk in divine wisdom.
I am the Light.
I am the head and not the tail.
I am courageous.
I am blessed with good health.
I walk in love.
Fear has no power over me.
I am a winner.
I am committed to the spirit of excellency.
I start and finish my goals.
I am driven.
Let these affirmations be part of your daily routine, say them repeatedly, cyclic, prayerfully until positivity imbues and envelope your total being.
Because of our uniqueness, be free to create and add more in accordance with your unique life circumstances.
Above all else remember that you are blessed and favoured.
Walk in the heritage of your high calling.
Grace has put me ahead, and I can never be disadvantaged! I increase in beauty, honour and influence. I live and walk with the consciousness of one who’s blessed of the Lord; and through me, blessings are dispersed to those in my world.
Psalm 1:1-3 AMP Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. 2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night. 3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither, and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].
Stay blessed and Favoured.
