Psalm 90:17 (NIV)
May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands.
As I reflect on this scripture, I undoubtedly can affirm how necessary it is to live in God’s favor and carry out His will. As scripture indicates, God’s favor isn’t fair, so praying for his favor is important to grow into the purpose God has for one’s life. Asking God to establish the work of your hands enables you to live in His favor. However, God’s favor comes with a responsibility. The responsibility of staying humble and grounded in His word. Also, the responsibility of knowing that some people are going to speak negatively and unfavorably about you, who may have uncommon favor. Some people may be jealous of the favor you have been blessed with. Therefore, it takes constant worship and communion with God to have the wisdom that is needed to live in God's favor.
