You Will Be Favoured

3rd September 2019

Scripture Reading: Acts 27: 41-44, 28: 1-6


“1. And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita. 2. And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.” (Acts 28: 1-2)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of how Paul and the other prisoners got to Melita where the barbarous people showed them great kindness. Melita means ‘honey’ as is symbolic of ‘sweetness’; the barbarous people showed them kindness, so they were good people as well. So Paul came to a good place and he met good people. It was not a case of good people in a bad place or vice versa; both the people and the land were in alignment to favour Paul.

Friend, let me release this word of prophecy to you: you will step into good places and you will meet good people there. You will come in contact with great opportunities and you will find good people tied to the opportunity that will cause you to be favoured; God will position men to show you kindness in your career, business, ministry, family, marriage, etc; God will send you men whose kindness towards you will overflow.

Your environment and the people therein will unite to favour you; the land you are in and the people therein will work together to make things easier for you; the place where you are and the people who are there will align to aid your promotion. There will not be any contradiction of being in a good place with bad people, or entering a bad place to meet good people. It will be a case of good place, and good people that will be kind to you.

Paul did not do anything for the barbarous people before they showed him kindness. It was kindness that came with no strings attached. Hear me as I hear the Lord: God will position men who will show you kindness you did not labour for; you may not have done anything for them, but they will favour you; you may not have done anything to attract their kindness, but they will be generous towards you with their kindness.

Get set: your land and the people therein will work together to show you kindness.



My environment and the people therein will work together to favour me, in Jesus’ name!
