Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant will also be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. (John 12:26 NIV)
There are so many people today who go through life with no expectation that good things can, or will, happen for them. In fact, some people actually get mad at me because I’m so positive, expecting God’s favor all of the time.
But I learned a long time ago that when God reveals a truth in His Word to you, that revelation causes you to become positive. When you understand just how much favor and honor you’ve already been given by God through Jesus, you can’t help but have a positive attitude.
If you’ve chosen to serve Jesus, then Jesus Himself has promised that His Father will honor you. To be honored by someone means you receive preferential treatment.
So, ask that the eyes of your understanding be enlightened so that you see the favor and honor that God has already given you in Jesus. Ask Him to reveal to you promises from the Word of God that will cause you to become more expectant of honor and preferential treatment. Promises such as, “I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation” (Psalm 91: 15-16).
Expect good things to happen to you today.
Confession: The eyes of my understanding are enlightened, and I am growing in the revelation knowledge of the favor and honor that are already mine because I serve Jesus.
