I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you. (Leviticus 26:9)
How blessed it is when God looks on us with favor and it is so for all who have been chosen by him to be a part of his heavenly kingdom.
Here God promises the Israelites who were in the wilderness that he was going to make them fruitful and increase their numbers and also that he was going to keep his covenant with them.
We too need favor of God in these difficult times that the world is going through. At the present moment there are more than 50 million people living in refugee camps and some without even these kinds of shelter.
Amidst all the chaos around us, God is still able to make us fruitful and will maintain his love and faithfulness with those who have placed their trust in Jesus.
In a godless generation in the ancient past, we read of one man finding favor with God. The Bible says,
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. (Genesis 6:8, 9)
Are you walking with God? If so, you will find favor in his eyes and he will make you fruitful.
An exhortation from the writer of Proverbs tells us exactly how we can find favor with God and with men....
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:3, 4)
Let's take this exhortation to heart and find divine favor and be fruitful always.
