The Favor of God

Wednesday night Pastor George taught on the Favor of God. I got to church late which is an intersting side story:
  • I went to return a rental at RedBox before church so that we wouldn't get charged for another days rental. The box was full and couldn't accept any returns. You can return to ANY redbox it doesn't have to be the one you get it from. I needed to turn left out of 7-11 to get to church so I figured I would try the gas station on the way and return it there. The Holy Spirit laid it on my heart that there was no redbox at that station and none on the way but that I could turn right and go to alberstons before going to church a short detour, just then Connor from the backseat tells me: "Daddy... Daddy... turn THAT WAY! Pointing RIGHT" SO... like any obedient child of God what did I do? I said I want to there to be one LEFT so I went left anyway... sure enough there was no redbox at this gas station and it was a long twice as long left as it would have been to go right... which of course I'm retracing now to get ALL the way back to albertsons. What could have been a short detour just got three times longer. The CHILD is full of the Holy Spirit... Daddy needs to be more obedient to the inner witness and listen to his child too!
ANYWAY... I was late and missed the first part... but this is what I heard once I got in:

Favor:
  • Is God personally getting involved in your success to act on your behalf.
  • Will cause people to go out of thier way to bless you, provide for you, and make special concessions for you. Ex: "I don't know why I'm doing this but..." will be a common phrase.
  • Will Make a way where there seems to be no way!
  • Open Doors where there seems to be no doors!
  • Do the impossible in an impossible situation!
RENEW YOUR MIND to the FAVOR of God!

Then Pastor George reminded us of a Message preached by Jerry Savelle at the Southwest Believers Convention in 1997 I found someone who had more complete notes than I took that night so I pasted that copy here for you, with a link to the person who typed those out.


1. Supernatural increase and promotion
But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. (Genesis 39:21, KJV).
2. Restoration of everything enemy has taken from you
And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty: (Exodus 3:21, KJV).
3. Honor even in midst of adversaries
And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people. (Exodus 11:3, KJV).
4. Increase assets especially in the area of real estate
And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with favour, and full with the blessing of the LORD: possess thou the west and the south. (Deuteronomy 33:23, KJV).
5. Greater victories in midst of greater odds
For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses. (Joshua 11:20, KJV).
6. Recognition even when you seem to be least likely to receive it
And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favour in my sight. (1 Samuel 16:22, KJV).
7. Prominence and preferential treatment
And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti. (Esther 2:17, KJV).
8. Get petitions granted, even by ungodly civil authorities
If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I shall prepare for them, and I will do to morrow as the king hath said. (Esther 5:8, KJV).
9. Policies, rules, regulations, even walls, are changed or reversed to your advantage
And said, If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king's provinces: (Esther 8:5, KJV).
10. Battles are won in which you won't even have to fight because God will fight them for you
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. (Psalms 44:3, KJV).
Jerry Savelle Ministries' Web site lists several tapes and videos on this subject.


Other Notes from Wed:

  • Your Tithe protects you from your OWN mistakes. The seed eater has no right to take your seed if your a tither EVEN if YOU opened the door to that mistake. Once you repented and moved on the seed eater has NO right to you. 
  • Armies could be arrayed against you and they may have devoured others, but they will fall UTTERLY when they bump up against YOUR life and the Anointing of God on you. 
  • Pastor George had been the Chairman of the Board at ORU. In 2007 things were not looking well and the board was even talking of shutting down. 
    • They needed far more money than they had. The day before they nearly lost the medical benefits for the staff. 
    • This particular morning was the board meeting. Pastor didn't feel like getting up and going. But we don't walk by our feelings!
    • Before the board meeting started he stopped everyone and they prayed in tounges for awhile. After that he said: "NOW... the outcome of this day will be the interpretation of that prayer!" and they began thier meeting. 
    • Eventually after a series of events 10 million dollars came in that day with a pledge for another 70 million. A new board was built and the entire school has been brought to new life. Over 200 million has come in since. The man responsible for most of that was driving his car and didn't know much about ORU. But God gave him a burden for the school there.
  • Sometimes what you need is to get out of your own way! Stop trying to PLAN and SCHEME! Pray in the Spirit until you sense the anointing of God on that situation has completed what needed to be done. Then go about your business and watch God interpret that into your life. Sometimes interpreatation of tounges is lived out and not just spoken.
     
  • That is a higher level of living!
  • EXPECT favor in 2010!
  • Be Aggressive... Persistent... and Determined about Favor in 2010!
  • Luke 4:18-19
    • Luke 4:18-19 (Amplified Bible)

      18The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity],
          19To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day [a]when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound.
      • pro⋅fuse

  • This is a prophetic word for EMIC now: TODAY this scripture has been fullfilled in your hearing.
  • Psalms 102.13 Apointed time to Favor!
  • Gen 12:2 I will bless you with abundant Favor!
  • Psalms 5:11-12 
     11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
             Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
             Let those also who love Your name
             Be joyful in You.
     12 For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous;
             With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

This is OUR season to be living in the Favor of God! MY season! This happens to me everyday! Halelujah!

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
