The favor of God

I love the definition that Mark Batterson gives for the favor of God: The favor of God is God doing something in and through you that only God can do. It is something that you could never do on your own.

That is what I want more than anything. It's what I want in my marriage, my parenting, our church plant and my life in general. I desperately want the favor of God to be upon me. This has become a regular prayer of mine.

Mark also said something else that's worth repeating. He shared that his theological starting point is from Isaiah 55:8-9. God's ways are higher than our ways and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts. I need to remember that.
