I know what favour is because I have experienced it countless times. I like how it is defined by, “something done or granted out of goodwill, rather than from justice or for remuneration.” It also defines favour as, “the state of being approved or held in high regard,” and as “excessive kindness or unfair partiality; preferential treatment.” Certain things happen to you when you are favoured: 1. Things are done for you speedily. For instance, if it normally takes a week to get a thing done, favour will make it done in a few days. Not because you paid a bribe, but because someone does it out of goodwill. 2. Favour makes you accepted and loved. While others seek attention and affection, favour will make you the preferred one. 3. You will get the best things. When you are favoured, you are given preferential treatment. People will not give you crumbs or leftovers or patched things; you will get the best. 4. An enviable position or a position of honour. You see, you can get a promotion or occupy an office because you worked hard for it or because you are favoured. Remember, favour is unfair partiality. Esther enjoyed divine favour. The Scripture says she obtained kindness of Hegai, and he speedily gave her things for purification; and he preferred her and her maids unto the best place of the house of the women. Also, Esther 2:15 says, “Esther obtained favour in the sight of all that looked upon her.” And verse 17 says that the king loved her above all the women, because of which a royal crown was placed upon her head! There’s a woman whose story is about to change; God is granting you favour in the sight of your husband! Your days of mourning and weeping have just come to an end. I prophesy to you all in the name of Jesus, if you will receive this word, this shall be your month of favour! And not only for this month, it will spill over into every other month of your life! Glory to God forever! Amen.
