“…to give you…houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant.”
(Deuteronomy 6:10–11, NKJV)
God has set you up for a distinctively favored life. When the Scripture says He gives favor for houses you didn’t build and vineyards you didn’t plant, it means He’s set you up for blessings you didn’t work for, for promotion you didn’t deserve. It’s not because of who you are; it’s because of whose you are. God has marked you with favor. When you realize this, you’ll pray bold prayers. You’ll dream big dreams. You’ll expect things to happen for you that may not happen for others.
This is why when others are afraid and upset, you don’t have to live worried. You’ll be at peace, knowing there’s a hedge around you that the enemy cannot cross. You may have things around you that could harm you, keep you from your dreams, and bring you down. Stay in faith. There is a distinction on your life, on your property, on your children, on your career, and on your health that is put there by the Creator of the universe.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are the Almighty God who has put a hedge of protection around my life that the enemy cannot cross. Thank You that I am Yours, and You have marked my life with Your favor. I declare that I will not live worried but will walk in peace. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.” ~Joel Osteen
