PR30 – Day 16 (March 10)

The F.O.G.
The “Favor of God”, you know what I’m talking about.  It comes up in those random times at work when you just have these rediculously awesome things happen and someone might ask you, “How in the WORLD did that happen?”  You simply say, “It’s the FOG!”  Yea, I like that!  Really, I am not trying to be silly.  This is for real.  Esther was raised up for “such a time as this” and she responded to authority and honored authority, she had some major FOG going on in her life. 

It can show up in many different ways.  It doesn’t always have to be tangible and physical although it might just manifest in that fashion. 

Here are a few definitions from Websters Dictionary:

1.  something done or granted out of goodwill, rather than from justice or for remuneration; a kind act: to ask a favor.

2. friendly or well-disposed regard; goodwill: to win the favor of the king.

3. the state of being approved or held in regard: to be in favor at court; styles that are now in favor.

4. excessive kindness or unfair partiality; preferential treatment: to treat some people with favor and others with neglect.

5. a gift bestowed as a token of goodwill, kind regard, love, etc., as formerly upon a knight by his lady.

Next time something just seems too good, just praise God.  It’s His favor shining down on you.

Also, remember to handle the FOG with some serious humility.  It’s nothing to flaunt or take pride in.  Just praise Him and be thankful for the FOG.
