Two men, James and Thomas attended the same university. James graduated with first-class honours, the highest grade any university could ever offer. Thomas graduated with third class, the lowest grade the university has ever offered. James, because he was very brilliant, went ahead and acquired a higher degree, and he graduated with distinction. He was very successful academically. Thomas, who graduated with the lowest grade went in search of a job. When he got to the interview, they almost rejected him, but he was able to convince the panel, and they gave him the opportunity. A few years along the line, he rose right to the top. James, the brilliant one couldn’t secure a good job like Thomas until they both met again. Thomas now had to employ James because of the relationship of the past. I Am the Almighty God. Favour is My name. Honour is My name. I favour whoever I want to favour and honour whoever I want to honour.
If I favour you, if My hand is upon you, you must be very careful the way you live your life because the enemy is watching you. For many of My children, I favoured them; I gave them unmerited privilege just to prove Myself in their lives. Instead of them to tread the ground gently, they went ahead, stepping on people’s toes. I Am not a wicked Father. If I favoured you, not because I disfavoured the other person. I favoured you because of the higher Spirit I put in you. If I favoured you, even if you don’t do things right, people will still accept you wherever you go. But don’t step on people’s toes. As I created you, so I created the other.
Some of you put your hands into many things because of My favour. I Am not a dirty Father; I Am a Holy Father. If life treats you smoothly where life treats others hardly, be very careful because your adversary is watching you. Some of My children in the time of old made such mistakes, and they died prematurely. I gave Job up for destruction because of his heart. For his pride to be dealt with, I had to allow Satan to torment him. But he had My fear. If a man has My fear, no matter what he does, I will still protect him. Satan cannot touch him unless I permit him. But always keep your heart right.
The fingers are not equal! As the Father wished, so He created us individually, uniquely for Himself. We shouldn’t compare our lives with other people’s lives. Whatever or whichever way we find ourselves, let us remember that it’s all about the Father. If His favour is removed, we become a prey for the enemy.
If we’re favoured, we must be very careful, especially in our dealings with human beings. Jealousy is bound to arise, but the wisdom we have in the Father will help us manage it. If you’re in a higher position than those who’re highly qualified than you, you must be extra careful because jealousy and hatred are around you seeking to bring you down. And if you go around stepping on people’s toes, you’ll be brought low quicker than you can ever imagine.
For the favour of the Father to last everlasting, you must drink and bathe yourself with the water of humility. If you wear the garment of pride, know it for sure the enemy will use it against you. The Bible says in Proverbs 11:2, “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Therefore, if you’re enjoying the favour of the Father, put on the garment of humility. Let nothing pull it away from you so that you can last long wherever the Father has placed you. May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus name.
