For some time you have felt estranged and distant from the favour of the Lord. But now a shift is coming and the Lord is reconciling you to his favour. The Lord is marrying you to favour. In the past you have flirted with favour, you have experienced moments of favour, but now the Lord is entering into a marriage covenant of favour with you. I see a hand with “favour” written upon it and the hand reaching out, inviting you to take hold of it. Say “yes” to favour, embrace favour, be joined to favour. You are literally becoming married to favour.
Never again will you be divorced from favour, never again will you feel estranged or separated from favour. When the Lord instituted the marriage covenant, it was meant to be a life long commitment, divorce was never part of his agenda. In the same way, my marriage of favour with you will never end. It is a life long covenant of favour with you. For his anger may last a moment but his favour lasts a life time.
But even beyond your life, this marriage of favour will produce a legacy of favour that will reach to your children and children’s children. For just as a marriage is designed to produce children, the marriage of the Lords favour will pass to your children and children’s children.
Today the Lord is entering into a fresh covenant of favour with you. Once again the Lord is calling you into a marriage with his favour. This is not a temporary season, but a life long covenant that shall not be broken. Once again favour is taking you by the hand. Once again you will feel the kiss of favour over your life. Favour is coming to kiss your finances. Favour is coming to kiss your home. Favour is coming to kiss your ministry. Favour is once again coming to kiss the works of your hands. For just as a bridegroom embraces his bride and pulls her close, the Lord is embracing you with favour, favour is surrounding you as a shield. You will feel the embrace of favour wrap around you and in that place you will experience total security and peace. As a man and wife become one flesh, the Lord is causing you to become one with his favour.
As a bride takes the name of her husband the Lord today gives you a new name and that name is “favour”. I see a woman calling her bank and saying “I have just got married and I need to change the name on my account”. I see bank accounts and the name of the account holder changing to “favour”. I see cheques being written under the name “favour”. I see buildings purchased under the name “favour”. I see mortgages being written off under the name “favour”. The marriage of favour will produce sons and daughters called “joy”. Joy will be the fruit of favour. As the Lord causes you to be married to favour, out of your womb will come joy, out of the womb of your relationships will come joy, out of the womb of your ministry will come joy, out of the womb of your finances will come joy. Out of your innermost being will flow a river of joy.
With this word of encouragement there is also a challenge. For just as Jacob had to marry Leah in order to marry Rachel, you also must marry the sister of favour. Many desire to marry Rachel but they scorn her sister. But you can not have one without the other. The sister of favour is “union” (Zech 11). It is in your unions that you marry favour. It is in your union with His holiness that you marry favour. It is in union with His church that you marry favour. It is in union with purpose that you marry favour. It is time to disconnect from all ungodly unions. It is time to disconnect from all unions that would keep you from the marriage of favour. Unions of sin, unions of unbelief, unions of isolation must end. Now is the time to embrace true union with Him. Now is the time to be united to the body of Christ. Now is the time to say “yes” to the purpose God has for you. Now is the time to be in union with kingdom purposes and kingdom relationships. Now is the time to yield to holiness. Now is the time to discover true union in His presence as you abide in deep intimacy with me.
As you embrace “union”, favour takes you by the hand and becomes your husband. I see doors of palaces, doors of places of incredible influence opening and the announcement being made “Greetings, you who are highly favoured”.
Out of union, favour comes. Out of union a marriage of favour is sealed. Now is the time for the highly favoured ones to arise. Those that are disconnected in this hour will be cut off from favour. But those who embrace true Godly union in this hour will enter in this covenant and become known as a Bride called “Highly Favoured”
