You Are Favoured

20th December 2020

Scripture Reading: Luke 1: 5-37


“For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.” (Psalm 44: 3)

Six months into the pregnancy of Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, God sent Angel Gabriel to Mary who would eventually become the woman by whose womb Jesus would be born. Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but unexpectedly, the Angel showed up to announce that she had found favour with God. That favour would later make Mary the mother of Jesus. It was favour that gave her what she didn’t plan for.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: as the year ends and another one begins, you shall be highly favoured. Favour will give you gifts you did not plan for; favour will fetch you opportunities you did not fight for; favour will put you ahead of your contemporaries; favour will make a way where you expected none; favour will make happen for you what you cannot make happen for yourself; favour will grant you a grand, favoured finish.

Mary did not pray to be chosen as the woman through whom the Messiah would be born. So favour gave her what she didn’t pray for or ask for. Hear me as I hear the Lord: favour will deliver to you what you never prayed for; favour will give you amazing results that are not part of your 2020 or 2021 plans; favour will set you apart for mighty divine visitations; favour will usher you into new season of miracles that sound like lies.

The favour that Mary received caused her to become the channel through which God did a new thing on earth. So it was favour for newness and new things. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you shall have favour for new things. By the favour of God that is coming on you afresh, new opportunities, new breakthroughs, new clients, new heights, new financial doors, new miracles, new helpers, new visions, new positions, etc will come to you.

Get set for the favour that places men above their labours. Get set for high favour that will give you new things.


I walk in high favour; I have favour for new things, in Jesus’ name!
