God’s Favor

God’s Favor
by Danny Tariman

“Do not be afraid… for you have found favor with God.”  (Luke 1:30)

My family arrived at the airport departure area at about 4 o’clock in the morning for our 7 a.m. flight. I noticed an immense number of people were massing at the check-in counters of almost all the airlines. It seemed impossible for us to reach the counter in time for the cut-off, as the lines were very long.

I called my friend who was booked at the 6 a.m. flight for the same destination. He arrived at the airport at about 2:30 a.m. but his flight was canceled. No wonder it was chaotic at the departure area.

My family and I prayed that we would easily get our boarding pass. Suddenly, we saw three computer kiosks for online check-in. In less than 10 minutes, we were able to check in and get our boarding passes.

All we could do was exclaim, “This is the favor of God!”

Thank You, Lord!

Reflection:The Bible says, “Come! let us go to implore the favor of the Lord and to seek the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 8:21). Before you leave home for work or any activity, pray for God’s favor to be manifested in whatever you undertake for the day.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for the grace You have given us to see Your hand moving in our lives. May we see Your favor manifested in us in many more ways.
