This week we get to hear from our very own delightful and classy Melissa Sears. This blog is an absolute treat. Mel ‘s life is a testimony to the Favour of God. I have watched this young lady walk through some of the most challenging and difficult of circumstances and she not only manages to smile but to pursue God with a tenacity that proves she seriously takes Him at His word. Melissa lives in diligent pursuit of the Favour of God and it’s contagious….Melissa is a single mum to her boy Nathaniel and works part time bringing some class and glamour as well as some order and favour to the guys at Ultratune. Enjoy this and I hope this stirs your faith like it did mine…
The more you expect favour the more you receive it….with Melissa Sears
Can I let you into my biggest secret, of what has got me through smiling on many occasions…. even before my husband walked out on me, while I was 5 months pregnant … God said to me via a prophesy at Hills “Everywhere the sole of your feet shall tread it belongs to you. Everywhere – divine favour, opening doors you wouldn’t expect, people coming to help, to bless you, whatever you need, expect to receive, because my favour is on you”.
Phil 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Ps 23:1 – The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.
Ps 5:12 – For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favour as with a shield.
I’m a testimony that what he says, he does. I’m blessed with a great son, great friends, great church and praying parents. In amongst a lot of long-suffering, patience and self-control, I’ve paid out my ex, kept my home, brought a new car and have favour in my job – as a part-time PA in a successful mechanic shop, where I laugh and have fun all day. (It is only a God thing I am there – I would have never chosen it myself – I have customers telling me how lucky I to work for such great guys – before I can tell them that!)
Favour comes to me in the little things also – I think of someone and they call… I need a meal – it turns up or I get a cheap deal or I have the money to splash out to fine dining– my son needs clothes/shoes/toys – it is given to him. I ask for specific items and I’m positioned at the right place at the right time – where you hear me saying “Thanks God, I love that”. I get upgrades on planes and in hotel rooms and I love to be positioned next to someone I can encourage…. Theses are just to name a few.
Pray for favour everywhere you go.
Thank God for favour when received.
What you expect is what you attract.
As you acknowledge & recognise favour, you experience more of it.
Expect that God wants to bless you and he wants you to be a blessing to everyone you meet.
God is able to do exceeding; abundantly above all we ask or think.
Forgiveness brings favour…. Romans 12:21 “Don’t let evil get the best of you, but conquer evil by doing good”. Forgiveness involves attitudes and actions (ie. smiling at the person). There are rewards for forgiveness – good things will come into your life.
Let Go and Let God! … God almost never does it the way you tell him…
God does not want your eyes on any person as your source….He is our only source.
Believe for the impossible & God’s supernatural favour will work for you, as it does for me on a daily basis.
One day of favour is worth a 1000 days of labour. God can do for you in one day what could take years to accomplish alone… and I love that.
