Don't Turn Away God's Favor Because Of Your Past


And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven's Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God's house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.

Hebrews 10:19-23 NLT

Good Morning!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great Palm Sunday yesterday! Yesterday, I began a new series called, “ X “. Make sure you stream the message. I know it will encourage you!

As we begin Holy Week, I want to continue to encourage you to believe God for His favor to continually show up in your life. On Friday, we shared how God can even cause your mistakes to turn for your good and prosper. You will hear me emphasize this many times this week: your past is not greater than your future. The work that Jesus wants to accomplish in your life is greater than what you have imagined.

‭As we finish reading the book of Matthew this week and retrace Jesus’ steps to the Cross, we are reminded of His great sacrifice for us. He suffered for us. He died for us. He rose for us. The blood he shed cleansed us from our sins, freed us from the control of darkness, purchased us a brand new identity, and liberated us from our past. No matter how horrible your past was, the blood of Jesus is enough to handle it all.

Don’t judge your future by the mistakes of your past. Don’t judge what God can do in your life because of all of your failures and shortcomings. The blood of Jesus was shed for you. Because of the blood, you have an opportunity to have faith in God and believe for His best for your life.

The favor of God is available to you today. Don’t turn it away because of your past. Don’t turn it away because you feel guilty. Don’t turn it away because of your failures. Believe that the blood of Jesus still works and has made a way for you.

Pray this prayer with me today, “Father, thank you for your favor and your help. I believe your favor surrounds me as a force field. I ask for greater levels of your favor to manifest in my life. I ask for your help, today. Lord, help us grow in understanding of your favor so that we can live in the upward cycle of favor. I ask that you show us how we all can be wise stewards of your favor. Your favor makes the difference in our lives. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Thank you for starting your day with Faith in the Morning. We love you and are praying for you. Have a miraculous day!
