Folks speak of blessings and miracles consistently in study of finding faith.
From what I have seen and studied many of the faithful understand that God through Jesus and His death and finally His resurrection
come to get their heads around their own salvation as reward for having faith in Jesus.
I believe that coming to realize such a reality as truth is when most folks end their learning.
We study blessing from Genesis through the Gospels. We see Miracles by example in the Gospels and we study them
for purposes of memorizing the largeness of what God is all about in our searches.
Some of us listen a bit more closely to the words of Christ and embark and actions behaviors and deeds that are Christ-Like, but many believers
seem to be satisfied in knowing only of Salvation for being saved.
God and worshiping God remain staples of maintaining a sort of righteousness in God's judgement. Tithing regularly is similar to buying an eternal Life Insurance Policy. Sure you'll remain saved after you get through the hardship of this sinful and fleshy word.
What if you could desire God's Favor? What do you suppose you would need to do if you did desire God's favor?
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me, the works that I do shall he do also: and greater works he shall do because I go unto my Father.
What works of Christ are you busy at in between attending church? Is your faith a topic of conversation at work? Do you take counsel with friends
concerning matters of God's work? Are your children raised knowing God is their Spiritual Father and you just as they are children?
God's Favor is put on those worthy of being seen as examples for living outside of church. Personally I can count on more than two hands
the times I knew I had God's Favor. That is on ten years of my forty-eight year old life. God's Favor is greater than any blessing or miracle because blessings and miracles are how God's Favor is manifested for lesson of meat to the hungered believer.
Just today I saw God's Favor shine on a Pastor of mine and two of his flock. They served the Holy Spirit and in love of the body of Christ as Christ said to do... The Great Comforter delivered them wisdom to realize a mutual need concerning a common issue and one of the greatest innovative responses that is demanded of those in the body flourished. All of it is labor of righteousness that Glorifys God. The Pastor asked for support from the body, delivery of resources that would enable a networking explosion in attending a conference of the believers' industry which the body of the church
finds tremendous joy in for sharing. I was told to offer my services to make this concern a viable possibility and we as the body will see this thing become an answered prayer right before our eyes.
You don't have to believe in such a thing known as God's Favor, but let me tell you what, I don't care. What I know is even when God's Favor isn't laid on me, when I see it on another, you best believe I'll be familiar as a believer in being a part of God's Favor.
Faith without deeds is nothing. When you align those deeds to faith God has to show His Favor, He promised to do so and even said that we should remind him of earning that Favor. That is when miracles and blessing come like the rain, quenching those thirsty for God's Love.
