Faith-FULL: Unlocking God’s Favor

God‘s blessing and favor are not locked away from you.
God‘s blessing and favor are locked away for you.

Isaiah 45:3 NLT, And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness—
secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name.

Parables show why things are locked from some and for others:
Matthew 13:10-12, And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” Jesus answered them, “To you it as been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to them it has not been granted. For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have even what he has shall be taken away from him.

God revealed His motivations through choosing the Hebrews:
Deuteronomy 7:7-9
  The LORD did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; 8] but because the LORD loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the LORD has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments

God did not choose you because he saw so much potential in you. 

He chose you because He could show His faithfulness through people who were far from preferred and perfect

• God chooses people based on who will allow Him to be faithful. God doesn’t need partners, because He does not need help.
• God chooses sons and daughters to reveal Himself through.
• People who think they have enough, don’t think they need God.
• People like to talk about God, but don’t actually want to do what He says.
