Nehemiah Favor To Rebuild

 

 

FAVOR IS GOD’S  “I AM FOR YOU” ATTITUDE TOWARDS YOU

 

YOU CAN NEVER EARN GOD’S FAVOR 

IF YOU DID 

IT WOULDN’T BE FAVOR

 

 

AN AWARENESS OF THE FAVOR OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE 

IS AN ANTIDOTE TO FEAR

 

 

 

 

As with the last post I am sharing my sermon notes from last Sunday's teaching.

 

First I want to share scriptures where the words GRACE and FAVor can be used interchangeably.

 

And God is able to make all grace (favor) abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 

II Corinthians 9:8

 

But He gives more grace (favor). Therefore He says:

“God resists the proud,

But gives grace (favor)

to the humble.”

James 4:6

 

As each one has received a gift (charisma), minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace (favor) of God. 

I Peter 4:10

 

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace (favor) and truth.

John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ ”

And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace (favor for favor). For the law was given through Moses, but grace (favor) and truth came through Jesus Christ. 

John 1:14-17

 

 

 

 

 Turn to the book of Nehemiah

Nehemiah was in Shushan the palace in what is present day Iran. This whole story had started many years before in Babylonian captivity now the Persians had conquered the Babylonians .

 

 

Timeline

586BC - Nebuchadnezzar destroys the temple that Solomon had originally built in Jerusalem

515-516BC - Temple , after several delays, the temple rebuild was finished under the leadership of Zerubbabel . Zechariah 4:6-7

Grace (favor) (hin) in Hebrew Strongs first definition of Hin is favor! Shout favor to your mountain.

458 BC- Nehemiah goes to Jerusalem - the temple is there but the walls are fallen down in some places and in disrepair in others.

 

In spite of opposition from within and without Nehemiah and the people were able to rebuild the walls in 52 days. What had not been accomplished in many years was accomplished in 52 days.

Favor can bring divine acceleration.

 

 

Favor can put you in the right place at the right time with the right people. 1:1 and 1:11(yitab) -  in Hebrew means well placed!

2:5 favor, 2:8 , 2:18, 2:20 In Christ we are well placed!

 

Four Favor phrases from Nehemiah.

 

Favor can close the door on the enemy.

  4:7-14 breaches are gaps in the wall that allow the enemy to have access.

 

An awareness of God’s favor can sustain confidence during the hard times in what God has already put in you or told you. 5:7 “I consulted with my self” I laugh out loud when I read those words. Like David encouragedHimself in Lord.

 

Favor helps you receive the right voices and reject the wrong voices 6:1-4, 6:10-14 The gift of discernment of spirit. Gift -favor mentioned right after gift of prophecy sometimes the words sound right but the spirit is wrong

 

 

  God will make his favor on your life so obvious that even your enemies will have to admit that God’s favor is on your life. 6:15-16
