This Grace Called Favour – Apostle Joshua Selman (My Jottings)

This Grace Called Favour by Apostle Joshua Selman a Summary

SHORT EXHORTATION BEFORE THE MAIN MESSAGE

Within the limits of your covenant for your growth, you do not choose the menu. There are 3 things that must be present in a territory without which there will certainly be problems (2 Chronicles 15:3 — “3 For a long time Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach and without the law.” (NIV). These are the True God, a Teaching Priest and Laws.

THE MAIN MESSAGE

Philippians 1:7 — “7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.” (KJV)
2 Corinthians 8:7 — “7 Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.”(KJV)

  • Ye are all partakers of my Grace
  • There are many dimensions of Grace

Man by default is limited because he is in a mortal body, but there are systems of advantage to turn a struggle into a sing and a wonder. Time is the Unit of destiny, but we can have dominion over time through Speed and Favour.

Exodus 3:21 — “21 And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty.” (KJV)
Exodus 11:3 — “3 And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.” (KJV)

  • Favour is multi-dimensional.
  • Favour is merited- against the normal belief of it been purely unmerited.
  • Favour is divine help- divine assistance.
  • God in partnership with men providing assistance to your life and destiny.
  • Good understanding gives favour (Proverbs 13:15 — “15 Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.” (KJV))
  • Favour from God is the number one reason why people succeed in the Kingdom.
  • Every testimony of success and victory in this kingdom is connected to favour.
  • In this Kingdome, who hates you does not matter, but who likes you matters.
  • All blessing come from God; through men, to men
  • Zechariah and Mary sked similar questions but because Mary was highly favoured, she was able to get an answer.
  • You need favour to achieve your goals and achieve your divine destiny in Christ.
  • Favour is when God raises men to invest their time, resources and their credibility to assist you in achieving destiny.
  • Savour is divine, it takes God to have it.
  • True riches comes from God is what actually brings money and wealth
  • One person can be used by GOD to open more than 100 doors of opportunity.
  • It takes time to seek God and to teach your children the things of God.
  • Everything communicated is with the vision of Kingdom come.
  • Jesus also grew in favour with God and with men. (Luke 2:52 — “52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” (KJV))

 

KEYS TO ACTIVATING FAVOUR ANYWHERE
  1. HONOUR: This is the key to access; dishonour closes doors. honour is the discerning, celebrating and or rewarding of Men for their distinctive difference. NOTE: Honour is not Human Worship. Gratitude is the clearest display of honour. Your certification will give you a job, but honour will promote you. Discern and say “Thank You”. Nicodemus did not talk to Jesus harshly; rather, he called Him “Rabbi”, even though he himself was a teacher of the law. Honour keeps doors open. It can generate results that are trans-generational. Everybody you see is multi-dimensional, the dimension you honour is the dimension that delivers to you (Matthew 10:40-41 — “40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.” (KJV))
  2. VALUE: Value is a measure of your usefulness to provide solutions. You have to to be exceptionally valuable. You know you are valuable when people neglect pain just to be of assistance. Focus on developing yourself more than your business plan. You attract success based on what you become, not what you are doing. Your success is not what you obtain but what you had to become to obtain. Your growth is greater than your doing. Beware of “arrival mentality”. Until you can serve kings, you are not there yet.
  3. RELATIONSHIPS: Amos 3:3 — “3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (KJV). Everything multiplies on the ground of relationships. Relationships are advantageous  connections. Trap your liftings with relationships. Do not have relationships only with those who have risen but also with those who are rising; the rising still have an unknown future to you. Let the Holy Spirit guide us in choosing relationships; not just any one who is anyhow. You need Divine Connectors. You need Men of Influence, you need Gifted People, you need Burden-Bearers. Don’t let circumstances choose your relationships. You must be intentional. The real proof of friendship is not life, it is death.
  4. PRAYER: Like Jabez, we can obtain favour that will transform our lives in a blink even when from our inception, we seem to be disadvantaged. God is the Father of all Spirits.
  5. THE ESTHER ANOINTING: Esther 2:15-17 — “15 Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her. 16 So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. 17 And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.” (KJV). The assignment of this grace is to insist on the Heart of Men.

May the Lord our God bestow upon us THIS GRACE CALLED FAVOUR. May we ALWAYS find favour before God and Men. May it be that before we knock, the doors open of their own accord; in line with the perfect will of God, in Jesus Name, Amen. I hope you enjoyed the summary, comment and like the post and don’t forget to share, God bless you all. Amen
