If “faith” is defined as “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” [Hebrews 11:1], then “favor of God” might be defined as “the evidence that God approves of a person.”

How can a believer obtain the favor of God?

Okay, so what does the Bible say about the favor of God and obtaining it?

  1. God favors those who are humble and contrite in spirit and tremble at His Word – (Isaiah 66:2)

  2. Whoever finds wisdom finds favor with the LORD (Proverbs 8:35).

  3. Who the LORD finds righteous, he covers them with His favor (Psalm 5:12).

  4. The LORD bestows favor and honor on those who walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:11)

  5. Psalm 30:5 says that God’s anger is for a moment, but His favor is for life.

  6. Proverbs 3:1-4 says that those who keep the commandments of the Lord “find favor and good success in the eyes of the Lord and man.”

  7. The humble will find favor with the Lord (Proverbs 3:33-35).

So basically, the Lord favors the humble, the contrite, the righteous and those who seek His wisdom.

And what is the beginning of wisdom?

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”
Proverbs 9:10


The Lord delights in those who find favor with Him–and the Lord will uphold those who find favor with Him.

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.”
Psalm 37:23-24

Having the favor of God should be a highly desired priority for the end times. Obtaining the favor of God ought to be part of every believer’s plan of end times preparation.

Actually, obtaining the favor of God ought to be part of the believer’s everyday living.

Does the reader have the favor of God?

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16


“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 – (h/t:B)
