Just came across this:

As a child of the Most High God, you’ve been given a special gift…His favour.

God gives it to you because He wants to show you His love and faithfulness.
When you realize this, you’ll know that God’s favour on your life can be limitless!

Having God’s favour doesn’t mean that you won’t have to persevere, press on or keep hope alive through hard times. The truth is, it’s in difficult moments that we are able to truly appreciate the favour of God in the most powerful ways. There is no obstacle in your life bigger than the favour of God.

There are things going on in our lives where I think:
'what is this about? what is God preparing us for?'.

Next week we have a day out planned.
Been in the diary for months - just 'a nice thing to do'!
In the light of the situation I have referred to in the previous articles will we make it?
Strong sense of need to perserve and press on.
Throw out all entanglements / visitors which might scupper the plans.

This, and other similarly themed articles, have been compiled into the 'God is Good Series'.
