God’s Blessings: 4 Roads That Lead You There
Marc Millan is a recording artist turned worship leader. I came across an article, he wrote recently on his blog, called “The Road to God’s Blessings.”
He shares how he learned four critical lessons while following Jesus… lessons to obtaining God’s blessings or favor, such as joy, peace, love, understanding, and rest.
God’s Blessings: 4 Roads That Lead You There
“Here are four roads that will lead to God’s blessing over our lives from what His Word tells us.
1. Forgiveness– If you are carrying around bitterness or a grudge, you gotta let that stuff go, you gotta trust God with those things…
2. Humility- If you think you aren’t prideful…sorry to break it to you, you are prideful. In fact, unless you are…
3. Submission- I struggled with this for some time because of how badly my father was treated in ministry, I felt I had to constantly…
4. Purity– A life called to serve God must be consecrated and separated from sinful activity. Not only that, the desire to…
If we can ask God, openly to reveal these areas in our lives so that these roads, these areas, a life that forgives, that walks humbly, a life submitted to authority and a life of purity can become part of us, we will remain under the mighty hand of God, in safety, with His blessing and favor over everything we do and everything we are.” (read the whole article here – Update June 2014: original link no longer good)
I encourage you to take a minute to read his entire article (sorry original article no longer available) and gather some wisdom he shares in these lessons.

Inspirational – Expect the Favor of God and Let Him Turn Your Trials to Blessings!
Expect the Favor of God to Flow in Your Life
favor abounds and flows from God.
So if you feel like there is no hope,
for the trials you are struggling to overcome
at this time in your life, be encouraged.
God is there for you and He wants to turn your trials into blessings!
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but God delivers them out of them all.”
— Psalm 34:19
Trials Turned Into Blessings
Alright, well we can’t expect that the storms of life won’t blow our way. The fact is: storms are a part of life. What we can expect is to have God by our side; helping us through the storms.
God can be trusted to always be there for us. It comes as no surprise, but it’s not the same case with people – people let us down. And that is exactly why we turn to God first and foremost in our trials, because He is the one that can ultimately turn our trials into blessings.
Regardless of the trouble you may be facing, God has an answer. He wants you to turn to Him so He can help you with a solution. Remember, God cares about you. Not only that, He loves you and has a great plan and purpose for your life.
“‘For I know the plan I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
— Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Expect the Favor of God
Learn to put your expectation on the favor of God flowing in your life. Sure you can expect some storms in life to blow through, but you should have a greater focus that expects the favor of God to abound.
“For His anger endures but a moment; in His favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.”
— Psalm 30:5
Choose to see with the eyes of your heart and have an attitude of gratitude:
- Expect to find favor with God and man. EXPECT PROMOTION.
- Expect God to open doors that no man can shut. EXPECT DIVINE CONNECTIONS.
- Expect God’s strength in times of weakness. EXPECT HEALTH.
- Expect with God all things are possible. HAVE FAITH.
- Expect God, the Father of lights, to flow good things your way. EXPECT EXCELLENCE.
- Expect to be blessed to be a blessing. GIVE THANKS.
- Expect to be found when God is searching the whole earth for those whose hearts are towards Him. LOVE GOD.
Solomon tells us in Proverbs 8:35 that those who find wisdom, find life, and shall obtain the favor of the Lord. And we see in Luke 2:52 that Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Seek wisdom.
Seize the day; it is a gift. God can turn your trials into blessings, your storms into sweet breezes. Great things happen with faith that starts as tiny as a mustard seed. Seek first the kingdom of God and be about your Father’s business. Expect the favor of God and let Him turn your trials into blessings.
May life overflow with the favor of God and abound with growing prosperity!

How to Get Favor to Move You from Lack to Abundance!

Do you find yourself withdrawn into a shell of fear, anxiety, frustration, and negativism due to childhood experiences, bad situations, and failures in marriage and life? Have years of sowing negative thoughts into your spirit attracted to you negative, sour, mean, people and situations?
Well, don’t be kept in the dark. Your thoughts are the beginning of your reality. Constantly confessing the negative will put up a road block that prevents favor from coming through to you. Learn to change your attitude toward life and you’ll change your place in it and begin to see abundance.

The simple fact of the matter is: You need to change your attitude and let God’s Word be true in your life. Stand on the truth of His Word and it will set you free from whatever is holding you back. Faith comes by hearing the Word, so speak His words over your life daily. Don’t be one that confesses doubt and failure until you are depressed and broken down.
MAKE BOLD FAVOR CONFESSIONS TO MOVE YOURSELF INTO ABUNDANCE:
- God Makes His Face to Shine Upon Me Today and He is Gracious to Me
- I Have God’s Special Favor on Me Today and I Prosper
- God Gives Me Abundance of Favor
- I Have Favor with God and All Men
- God is Doing Exceedingly Abundantly Above All That I Ask or Think
- I Am Blessed to Be a Blessing to Others
- God is Pouring the Spirit of Favor on Me Today
Repeat these confessions until they are deposited into your spirit. Remember, nothing is impossible with God! Learn to walk in the law of God’s favor and abundance. It is available for everyone. Choose to receive it.

Would You Like 2 Easy Steps That Attract Abundant Favor To Prosper?
Apply These Two Easy Steps to Attract Prosperous Favor for a New Lease on Life!
There is no better time than now to attract some favor. Especially if you are like so many who are ready to throw in the towel or feel like their back is up against the wall. Have years of sowing negative thoughts attracted negative, sour, people and situations into your life?
It’s no wonder, because your thoughts are the beginning of your reality. Constantly thinking and speaking negative will short circuit favor from getting through to you.
But the GOOD NEWS is, there is ABUNDANT FAVOR available to you. You are made in God’s image. In you is the ability to give and receive favor. God is reaching out His hand of favor to you. You must stop thinking you are not capable or worthy of receiving and giving His favor. A strong negative spirit will hinder your ability to reach out and receive much of this favor.
Know where you stand. God is a God of love, favor, and mercy. You are an outlet for His power to flow through to bless you and others. He is constantly promoting those who learn to live in this law of favor. To be on track, you must follow His steps.
Attract Favor by Following Two Easy Steps:
#1 – First you must think, believe, and expect favor to flow from God and others to you. Get your thoughts in-line and see yourself receiving favor everywhere you go and in everything you do.
#2 – Second, you need to favor others even when they are ugly and unkind to you. Give favor to others daily.
Plain and simple, you reap what you sow. Give and the Lord will make men give unto you. Set yourself up to receive favor. Meditate and sow good thoughts of blessings to others.
We are told in 2 Corinthians 9:10 that God gives seed to the sower. As you give, God continues to fill your life with fresh favor to prosper. But just like electricity has no power until the circuit is completed, favor has no power until your circuit is completed. You must let it flow to others.
A new lease on life can be yours. Reach out beyond your present “rut” by expecting favor. Develop an attitude of being blessed to be a blessing. Watch as you leap into new levels of favor and growing prosperity in your life!
God bless you,
How to Prosper by Overcoming Anxiety with Abundant Favor!
God Gives an Abundance of Favor for Your Confidence to Prosper
Our minds often get conditioned to accept a low level of confidence because of past experiences we’ve had as far back as our childhood. The stresses, pressures and daily attacks on our minds can have us living in fear, anxiety and depression. However, that does not have to be the case.
God’s love and favor heals insecurities and anxieties!
Begin to realize the divine favor you have with God and man and learn how to put it to work in your life. God’s blessing of favor flowing in your life is not based on your background, talents, or anything you have learned. Ephesians 6:24 says that grace is with all those that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Grace means favor you do not deserve.
Start the favor of God flowing in your life by daily confessing what God promises. Then you will see yourself walking in His favor in every area of your life. Speak words of favor over and over during the day until your spirit is revived. When the truth of God’s love and favor get planted into your spirit, it will replace the insecurities and anxieties you have.
Many people confess doubt and failure over and over during their lifetime until their spirit is depressed and broken. Do not be one of those people! Within just a few days you can experience a very dramatic change with God’s abundant favor.
Get started right now with these confessions on favor and confidence:
I am blessed with God’s grace. God pours out on me a river of favor with God and with those around me.
You, Lord bless me with favor and You surround me as with a shield. (Psalm 5:12)
I have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16)
The Greater One lives in me. Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
I am being filled with God’s fullness. I am being rooted and grounded in love. God is doing exceeding and abundantly above all that I ask or think. His mighty power is taking over in me. (Eph. 3:17-20)
I grow strong in spirit, filled with wisdom, and the grace and favor of God is upon me. (Luke 2:40)
The truth of God’s Word makes me free. (John 8:32)
Thank You, Lord, that I have favor with You and man and people go out of their way to bless me and do good to me today.
Favor flows by standing on the living Word of God in faith. Reject the negative things you have been feeding into your mind. Accept only what the Lord has told you. Repeat the above confessions until doubt disappears.
Learn to walk in God’s favor. It is for you today. Speak favor. Live favor. Be prosperous. Live life expecting something great to happen daily and it will. Remember, with God nothing is impossible. Let His truth take root in you. Favor is God’s promise to every believer from His Word. All you have to do is receive it and prosper.
Enjoy growing prosperity as the favor of God flows in your life!
God bless you,
