The Favor Of God – Luke 1:25

“The Lord has done this for me. He has looked with favor in these days to take away my disgrace among the people.”

What compares to the favor of God? What could even begin to compare with this favor? The God of the universe looks upon us with special kindness by His own inclination and smiles down upon us. What could compare with such? He would be mindful of me? It is more than the human mind can comprehend. More than the soul can grasp. More than the heart can contain. The unanticipated, unearned, undeserved favor of God granted to a weak, sorry, whiny earthling. Go figure. I can’t figure it out. I don’t want to. Grant me the faith to receive it and the ongoing realization of it so that I might continue to walk in gratitude for it.
