When others seem to get more favors easily

There are some people who don’t have to ask, more so to plead in order to get favors. They just have this irresistible charm that you just cannot say no to. Oftentimes, you go the extra mile just to give them whatever they request from you.

I don’t usually ask for favors, afraid that I might be turned down. I’m not used to give others burden by my requests. And I used to envy those people bold enough to just give you a smile and you’d gladly extend a hand.

I heard a message from somebody I look up to, saying everywhere she goes, God’s favor is upon her. I was one of those people whose initial reaction was ‘God must favor you more than others because you’re a bible study teacher.’

But I realized I was wrong.

Romans 3:29 says “Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of the Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, since there is only one God…”

If God can pour others immeasurable blessings, He can give it to anyone. He is not a God of a few, but a God of all. What He can do to one, He can do it for you.

She believed for millions-worth of house and God built it for her. She believed for big business transactions and God provided for her. She believed for healing and God was faithful to heal her.

God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. His promises stand the test of time. His favors are already spoken, just waiting to be claimed. We only need to believe that our God is faithful to shower us blessings that we could never imagine.

I never realized His favors in my life, even the littlest one, until I was told that. I used to say that God can do everything but in my heart I had shameful doubts of whether He would truly grant my prayers. I used to say that I trust Him, but I never really believed that until now.

I am not to envy anyone else anymore because I am now firm that I need not plead my case with God. He always listens. It’s never a burden for Him. He is always ready to open the gates of heaven for abundance of blessing.

We are irresistible to God. All we have to do is to believe that He is able.
