ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Divine Favor 

 (Happy New Year)

Favor comes by God's anointing
Which is triggered by our faith.
Our Father operates in seasons
 And His timing's always great.
 
God anoints whom He's appointed
To do a work He has ordained.
These need not be educated,
Highly learned or even trained.
 
Because Jesus used mere fishermen...
 Tax collectors and the like...
 Self-righteous Scribes and Pharisees
Looked for different ways to strike.
 
Trick questions used to trip Him up
Would backfire every time...
Because Jesus was the Son of God
 His answers were always divine.
 
Divine favor always rested
On the perfect Prince of Peace.
His mission was to save the world
And His work will never cease.
 
For He's anointed you and I
To continue in His Name...
For His is the one and only means
By which salvation came.
 
Divine favor does not result
In the slightest hint of chance.
The child of God's not lucky...
Our lives don't run on happenstance...
 
Because our footsteps have been ordered...
Favor opens new frontiers.
Divinely leading all God's children
 Into each Grace-lined brand New Year.

~~Dedicated to Dianna and Bri~~

~~ Author's Note~~
Happy 2016 Children of God...may the New Year be one
peace, joy, and God's Highest Favor....Divine Favor! May
this be your divinely appointed season to do even greater
things for God!
 

 
Job !0:12
You have granted me life and favor,
And Your care has preserved my spirit.
 
Proverbs 8:35
For whoever finds me finds life,
And obtains favor from the Lord.

Psalm 5:12
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
 
Ecclesiastes 3:1
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
 
Acts 4:12 
Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven
given among men, whereby we must be saved.
