Memorise: But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4
Read: Matthew 4:2-4
Bible in one year: Ezekiel 43-45
It is a great thing to benefit from God’s favour because | His favour completely wipes out emptiness. The I favour of God is also dangerous. Why you may ask? It's because the favour of God can convert the goods of enemies and oppressors into spoils for the favoured. In Exodus 3:22, God said,
"But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians"
Considering this scripture, one will discover that, it is dangerous to rob, steal from, deny or cheat a believer. You may be permitted to do so for a long whi le but on the day the favour of God falls on that individual, you may have to forfeit both what you took or stole as well what rightfully belongs to you. Your belongings might supernaturally move into his or her hands and you will be unable to prevent this trend of loss. Therefore if you have taken anything from any of God's children, or if you are impeding their promotion, release it now with pleas before it is too late for you!
At any point in time it is important to know what God is currently saying concerning a given situation. To walk in God's favour, you need to know the word that is proceeding from God's mouth. Jesus said we ought to live by this day by day (Matthew 4:4). Such word was it that gave the children of Israel their unpaid wages of 430 years. Sometimes this proceeding word might contradict your known theology and might even defy logic, however you are duty bound to obey. For instance, God who has commanded us to pray for all men might stop you from praying for a particular individual. It happened to Samuel concerning Saul (1 Samuel 16:1). Also, God may ask you not to give to a particular individual or project under certain circumstances. If God gives you such instructions and you have confirmed He is the One, simply obey. It means what God is saying at that point in time supersedes whatever He has said before on the subject matter.
Key point: What God said in the past is important but what He is saying now is more important and urgent.
