ABC's of the Word..."F"


I apologize for the lateness of this post. The cabin we were at only had cell coverage when you were standing in certain spots and no computer coverage at all. I love this scripture finding activity hosted by Pam at Grey Like Snuffie. Go here to read the chosen scripture with a word starting with "F" from other bloggers. Thank you Pam for hosting this!


My word is . . . FAVOR. I chose the Old Testament verse to pray over my girls this week, the New Testament verse to pray over Joe and I.

[And the boy Samuel] continued to grow in stature and in FAVOR with the LORD and with men. ~ 1Samuel 2:26



[And Jesus] grew in wisdom and stature, and in FAVOR with God and men. ~ Luke 2:52


FAVOR is defined on dictionary.com as "the state of being approved or held in regard; on the side of; in support of: to be favorable to; facilitate: to deal with, treat, or use gently" but here is the really good definition for favor..."to bear a physical resemblance to; resemble: to favor one's father's side of the family". Ahhhh...to resemble our Father!!


Today I pray you find FAVOR in your Lord...that you resemble Him from the inside and outside.


Enjoy your first day of spring!

Hope your get away was wonderful. I love these scriptures...praying for God to grant favor is a BIG one in our home, whether its a meeting someone has or a test or whatever...when we've done our best and stepped out believing that He can do so much more...the favor of the LORD...what a wonder!

Ahhh, to be found dressed in his righteousness alone. This is a very powerful request. I too long for God to grand favor to my loved ones and to me.

We have a cabin get-away where I have to go stand under a particular tree to have cell phone reception. And Internet? I have to drive 25 minutes to the nearest Starbucks. I know what you described!

Favor from God, wow that's a biggie. I know I've prayed that, but never looked at it with those scriptures in my mind. More to think about.

Hey stranger. :-)
Long time no visit on either side (your place or mine).

Hope you are having/had a grand time.

I love the word favor. I've asked the Lord to shine His favor on me many times.
Love,
