Proverbs 3:4 Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.

When we get born-again, we become righteous (have right standing with God – Romans 5:1-2). Because we’re righteous, favor is on our lives (Psalm 5:12).

In the old covenant, they had to earn their favor by keeping all the commandments. In the new covenant, we can experience favor by faith (acting on what we believe in the word of God).

When we know we have right standing with God by faith, we can expect favor in our lives. When we go into situations and believe something good is going to happen to us (faith), we’ll have what we believe.

We can expect to receive preferential treatment, promotion, and unusual mercy. People won’t understand why they’re helping us out, but it’s just “something” about us. That something is favor.

Favor is there for any born-again believer who is willing to believe for it.
