What greater gift does a person ever receive than life, unless it’s favor from God. To receive both is truly off the charts good. Favor is defined as: 1. approval, support, or liking for someone or something and 2. an act of kindness beyond what is due or usual. At this very point in writing this morning’s devotion I received a call (4:30 am) that my 5-year-old granddaughter was being taken to the hospital in an ambulance, struggling to breathe. I started praying this verse for her story. Life and favor. Little Jennifer loves Jesus in the way only sweet 5-year-old girls can. I just got a text that her temp is 103.3. I will continue to ask that God’s act of extraordinary kindness be shown to this precious little child. Who in your story needs that as well? Today help those in your life find God and celebrate with them the life and favor only He offers. And please whisper a prayer for sweet Jen.
