One destructive mind-set that must be altered in our society is the thought that work is a curse. Some people advocate that if you are truly blessed you don't need to work hard. Because as they say "the race is not to the swift", I even had statements like "a day of favour is better than a thousand years of labour". To make things worse, this type of teachings are actually coming from our pulpits. We call ourselves Protestants, but we have totally departed from the teachings of the early Protestants. Martin Luther, John Wesley and John Calvin would turn in their graves, if they hear the kind of teachings we are now feeding the people of God with.Sunday Adelaja Favour Of God Sayings By Sunday Adelaja: One destructive mind-set that must be altered in our society is the thought that work
The Resurrection of Jesus is not simply a sign which God has granted in favour of His son, but is the inauguration, the entrance into history, of the times of the End.Benjamin L. Gladd Favour Of God Sayings By Benjamin L. Gladd: The Resurrection of Jesus is not simply a sign which God has granted in favour
For though we know quite well that God is present in all that we do, our nature is such that it makes us lose sight of the fact; but when this favour is granted it can no longer do so, for the Lord, who is near at hand, awakens it. And even the favours aforementioned occur much more commonly, as the soul experiences a vivid and almost constant love for Him whom it sees or knows to be at its side.Teresa Of Avila Favour Of God Sayings By Teresa Of Avila: For though we know quite well that God is present in all that we do,
I experience the grace of greater power.Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: I experience the grace of greater power.
PRO3.3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: PRO3.4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. PRO3.5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.Anonymous Favour Of God Sayings By Anonymous: PRO3.3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them
It was for the most part by sacrifices, processions, and religious dances, which he himself appointed and conducted, and which mingled with their solemnity a diversion full of charm and a beneficent pleasure, that he won the people's favour and tamed their fierce and warlike tempers. At times, also, by heralding to them vague terrors from the god, strange apparitions of divine beings and threatening voices, he would subdue and humble their minds by means of superstitious fears.Plutarch Favour Of God Sayings By Plutarch: It was for the most part by sacrifices, processions, and religious dances, which he himself
Remember God has accepted us. The gospel of grace is a message of breathtaking freedom. It must be embraced with faith and thanksgiving. You are thoroughly accepted just as you are. Jesus Christ is your righteousness and he is never going to change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. When you wake tomorrow, he will still be your righteousness, before you have done anything to enjoy God's favour. You have to earn nothing. Your spirit needs to bask in the brilliant sunlight of this reality. You need to know it inwardly and celebrate it on a daily basis.Terry Virgo Favour Of God Sayings By Terry Virgo: Remember God has accepted us. The gospel of grace is a message of breathtaking freedom.
I wonder if you're not over-sensitive about your misfortune. Has it ever struck you to thank God for it? As long as you accept it rebelliously it can only cause you shame. But if you looked upon it as a cross that was given you to bear only because your shoulders were strong enough to bear it, a sign of God's favour, then it would be a source of happiness to you instead of misery.W. Somerset Maugham Favour Of God Sayings By W. Somerset Maugham: I wonder if you're not over-sensitive about your misfortune. Has it ever struck you to
Whereupon then can I hope, or wherein may I trust, save only in the great mercy of God, and the hope of heavenly grace? For whether good men are with me, godly brethren or faithful friends, whether holy books or beautiful discourses, whether sweet hymns and songs, all these help but little, and have but little savour when I am deserted by God's favour and left to mine own poverty. There is no better remedy, then, than patience and denial of self, and an abiding in the will of God.Thomas A Kempis Favour Of God Sayings By Thomas A Kempis: Whereupon then can I hope, or wherein may I trust, save only in the great
The more we aware we become of God in us, the more overwhelmed we are with a sense of total fulfilment and completeness; needs disappear into insignificance. He is not a God who is a far of; he is Emmanuel! Nothing you can seek to do or wish and pray for could qualify you more for life. Nothing can make you more attractive or your life more significant than to simply become aware of his nature and presence in you and his favour towards you mirrored in the finished work of ChristFrancois Du Toit Favour Of God Sayings By Francois Du Toit: The more we aware we become of God in us, the more overwhelmed we are
For some years I deserted religion in favour of Marxism. The republic of goodness seemed more attainable than the Kingdom of God.Lionel Blue Favour Of God Sayings By Lionel Blue: For some years I deserted religion in favour of Marxism. The republic of goodness seemed
In all "benedictions", be they expressing plea or thanksgiving, we affirm that God is the "source" of every bounty we enjoy and of every favour we seek.Immanuel Jakobovits, Baron Jakobovits Favour Of God Sayings By Immanuel Jakobovits, Baron Jakobovits: In all "benedictions", be they expressing plea or thanksgiving, we affirm that God is the
Measure not God's love and favour by your own feeling. The sun shines as clearly in the darkest day as it does in the brightest. The difference is not in the sun, but in some clouds which hinder the manifestation of the light thereof.Richard Sibbes Favour Of God Sayings By Richard Sibbes: Measure not God's love and favour by your own feeling. The sun shines as clearly
Men are indeed to be taught that the favour of God is offered, without exception, to all who ask it; but since those only begin to ask whom heaven by grace inspires, even this minute portion of praise must not be withheld from Him. It is the privilege of the elect to be regenerated by the Spirit of God, and then placed under His guidance and government.John Calvin Favour Of God Sayings By John Calvin: Men are indeed to be taught that the favour of God is offered, without exception,
According to St. Bonaventure, all the angels in heaven unceasingly call out to her: "Holy, holy, holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God." They greet her countless times each day with the angelic greeting, "Hail, Mary", while prostrating themselves before her, begging her as a favour to honour them with one of her requests. According to St. Augustine, even St. Michael, though prince of all the heavenly court, is the most eager of all the angels to honour her and lead others to honour her. At all times he awaits the privilege of going at her word to the aid of one of her servants.Louis De Montfort Favour Of God Sayings By Louis De Montfort: According to St. Bonaventure, all the angels in heaven unceasingly call out to her: "Holy,
IF we desire European civilization to be a raid and a rescue, we shall insist rather that souls are in real peril than that their peril is ultimately unreal. And if we wish to exalt the outcast and the crucified, we shall rather wish to think that a veritable God was crucified, rather than a mere sage or hero. Above all, if we wish to protect the poor we shall be in favour of fixed rules and clear dogmas. The rules of a club are occasionally in favour of the poor member. The drift of a club is always in favour of the rich one.G.K. Chesterton Favour Of God Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: IF we desire European civilization to be a raid and a rescue, we shall insist
I beg the Most High to allow me the favour of the double reward, but if God only finds me worthy of one reward, I will accept it in all humility.King Hassan II Favour Of God Sayings By King Hassan II: I beg the Most High to allow me the favour of the double reward, but
God of great mercy!
God of great compassion!
Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: God of great mercy!God of great compassion!
It is undoubtedly the case (and considerations advanced in the first sub-section have prepared us for this conclusion) that the election does in some sense denote the basis of all the relationships between God and man, between God in His very earliest movement towards man and man in his very earliest determination by this divine movement. it is in the decision in favour of this movement, in God's self-determination and the resultant determination of man, in the basic relationship which is enclosed and fulfilled within Himself, that God is who He is.Karl Barth Favour Of God Sayings By Karl Barth: It is undoubtedly the case (and considerations advanced in the first sub-section have prepared us
The righteousness of God in His election means, then, that as a righteous Judge God perceives and estimates as such the lost cause of the creature, and that in spite of its opposition He gives sentence in its favour, fashioning for it His own righteousness.Karl Barth Favour Of God Sayings By Karl Barth: The righteousness of God in His election means, then, that as a righteous Judge God
Instead of us to rely on the strength and ability God has given us we hope for favor and help from God and people then do nothing.Sunday Adelaja Favour Of God Sayings By Sunday Adelaja: Instead of us to rely on the strength and ability God has given us we
Good listeners, I don't need to tell you that now more than ever, we're living in Godless times. We're living in a time when the Bible is shunned in our schools in favour of scientific evolutionary lies, where many are expelling God from their hearts, where sodomites and baby murderers and heathens and Islamofascists have more rights in our country than good Christian men and women. Where Sodom and Gomorrah cast a pall over every aspect of our daily lives, and our world leaders are trying with all their might to construct the culture of globalisation favoured by the Antichrist.Sarah Lotz Favour Of God Sayings By Sarah Lotz: Good listeners, I don't need to tell you that now more than ever, we're living
If you seek the presence of God, you will see the glory of God:Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: If you seek the presence of God, you will see the glory of God:
The word of God is full of assurance.Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: The word of God is full of assurance.
It has always been the habit of Catholic in danger and in troublous times to fly for refuge to Mary, and to seek for peace in Her maternal goodness; showing that the Catholic Church has always, and with justice, put all her hope and trust in the Mother of God. And truly the Immaculate Virgin, chosen to be the Mother of God and thereby associated with Him in the work of man's salvation, has a favour and power with Her Son greater than any human or angelic creature has ever obtained, or ever can gainPope Leo X Favour Of God Sayings By Pope Leo X: It has always been the habit of Catholic in danger and in troublous times to
Well then," said I, "if God does not forsake me, of what ill consequence can it be, or what matters it, though the world should all forsake me, seeing on the other hand, if I had all the world, and should lose the favour and blessing of God, there would be no comparison in the loss?Daniel Defoe Favour Of God Sayings By Daniel Defoe: Well then," said I, "if God does not forsake me, of what ill consequence can
For when God is said by these things to try men and prove them, to see what is in their hearts and whether they will keep His commandments or no, we are not to understand, that it is for His own information, or that He may obtain evidence Himself of their sincerity (for he needs no trials for His information); but chiefly for their conviction, and to exhibit evidence to their consciences ...
So when God tempted or tried Abraham with that difficult command of offering up his son, it was not for His satisfaction, whether he feared God or no, but for Abraham's own greater satisfaction and comfort, and the more clear manifestation of the favour of God to him.
Jonathan Edwards Favour Of God Sayings By Jonathan Edwards: For when God is said by these things to try men and prove them, to
Have I then no work to work in this great matter of my pardon? None. What work canst thou work? What work of thine can buy forgiveness or make thee fit for the Divine favour? What work has God bidden thee work in order to obtain salvation? None. His Word is very plain and easy to be understood, "To him that worketh not, but believeth in Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Rom. 4:5). There is but one work by which a man can be saved. That work is not thine, but the work of the Son of God. That work is finished.Horatius Bonar Favour Of God Sayings By Horatius Bonar: Have I then no work to work in this great matter of my pardon? None.
It is magnificent. At the moment of impact, the king's eyes are open, his body braced for the atteint; he takes the blow perfectly, its force absorbed by a body securely armoured, moving in the right direction, moving at the right speed. His colour does not alter. His voice does not shake.
"Healthy?" he says. "Then I thank God for his favour to us. As I thank you, my lords, for this comfortable intelligence."
He thinks, Henry has been rehearsing. I suppose we all have.
The king walks away towards his own rooms. Says over his shoulder, "Call her Elizabeth. Cancel the jousts.
Hilary Mantel Favour Of God Sayings By Hilary Mantel: It is magnificent. At the moment of impact, the king's eyes are open, his body
The breath of life is divine grace of God.Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: The breath of life is divine grace of God.
We are trying to find something to feel the void. It is only God who can fill the void.Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: We are trying to find something to feel the void. It is only God who
Yet, there was once a king worthy of that name. That king was Arthur. It is paramount disgrace of this evil generation that the name of that great king is no longer spoken aloud except in derision. Arthur! He was the fairest flower of our race, Cymry's most noble son, Lord of the Summer Realm, Pendragon of Britain. He wore God's favour like a purple robe.
Hear then, if you will, the tale of a true king.
Stephen R. Lawhead Favour Of God Sayings By Stephen R. Lawhead: Yet, there was once a king worthy of that name. That king was Arthur. It
Self-righteousness ... is the largest idol of the human heart - the idol which man loves most and God hates most. Dearly beloved, you will always be going back to this idol. You are always trying to be something in yourself, to gain God's favour by thinking little of your sin, or by looking to your repentance, tears, prayers ; or by looking to your religious exercises, your frames, etc; or by looking to your graces, the Spirit's work in your heart. Beware of false Christs. Study sanctification to the utmost, but make not a Christ of it.Robert Murray M'Cheyne Favour Of God Sayings By Robert Murray M'Cheyne: Self-righteousness ... is the largest idol of the human heart - the idol which man

So you know it was a glorious battle, Hook, in which God favoured the English, but God's favour is a fickle thing.'
'Are you telling me He's not on our side?'
'I'm telling you that God is on the side of whoever wins, Hook.
Bernard Cornwell Favour Of God Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: So you know it was a glorious battle, Hook, in which God favoured the English,
It was truly very good reason that we should be beholden to God only, and to the favour of his grace, for the truth of so noble a belief, since from his sole bounty we receive the fruit of immortality, which consists in the enjoyment of eternal beatitude ... The more we give and confess to owe and render to God, we do it with the greater Christianity.Michel De Montaigne Favour Of God Sayings By Michel De Montaigne: It was truly very good reason that we should be beholden to God only, and
Use the powerful tool of thought and develop your mindset to believing and knowing you can change anything to your favour; yes, you have God's Word so fashion your thought according to God's Word.Jaachynma N.E. Agu Favour Of God Sayings By Jaachynma N.E. Agu: Use the powerful tool of thought and develop your mindset to believing and knowing you
Sensible men were not eager to submit themselves to the Judgement of the Almighty, and a decisive battle seemed to prove that the victor had God on his side. Most people preferred not to put the Lord's Favour to such a stringent, conclusive test.Sharon Kay Penman Favour Of God Sayings By Sharon Kay Penman: Sensible men were not eager to submit themselves to the Judgement of the Almighty, and
I would take school instruction out of the hands of the old order of decrepit, stammering, journeymen-teachers as well as from the new weak ones, who are generally no better for popular instruction, and entrust it to the undivided powers of Nature herself, to the light that God kindles and ever keeps alive in the hearts of fathers and mothers, to the interest of parents who desire that their children should grow up in favour with God and man.Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi Favour Of God Sayings By Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi: I would take school instruction out of the hands of the old order of decrepit,
And it was inconceivable that the God of War would not be able to be the victor in a little skirmish like that, when all the cards were already stacked in his favour.
What could Jupiter do if he took her by force & deflowered her? In Roman Mythology, Mars was the only God who had ever raped a Vestal Virgin, an event that led to the birth of Romulus & Remus & the founding of Rome.[MMT]
Nicholas Chong Favour Of God Sayings By Nicholas Chong: And it was inconceivable that the God of War would not be able to be
God will fulfill your wishes.Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: God will fulfill your wishes.
As Ian popped the lock and opened the car door, he turned to Phoebe. "Can you do me a favour?"
She immediately stepped toward him, fully embracing their new mature relationship. "Of course."
Ian looked pointedly over his own shoulder and said, "Tell me the truth. Does this car make my glowing ass look fat?"
She'd naturally followed the direction of his gaze, but now she looked up, hard, into his eyes. And she smiled back at him despite herself. She even laughed. "You're an idiot."
"When things get too serious, I get a rash."
She pointedly looked back down at his nether regions, despite the fact doing so made her blush. Still, she spoke coolly, dryly. "Not on your ass."
If Ian believed in love, that would've been it for him. Instantly. Enthrallingly. Eternally. Instead, he just laughed. "Thank God for that. See if there's anything remotely clothinglike in the backseat or the trunk.
Suzanne Brockmann Favour Of God Sayings By Suzanne Brockmann: As Ian popped the lock and opened the car door, he turned to Phoebe. "Can
It's all about the relationships; forming them and sustaining them, growing and building a back and forth that will be useful to both parties. Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of the practice so often seen today: a person decides that a particular God or Goddess is suitable for a one off ritual or occasion, calls them up, expects them to grant boons and favours and help out in whatever situation is being worked for, and then is never heard from again. If a complete stranger walked into your house and asked for a favour, however politely - would you be inclined to help? Possibly you would, and sometimes the Powers do too, if there is sufficient offering or perhaps bribery involved. They are not above being bought off. However, most people would be far more inclined to help out when a friend asks a favour, and this follows through with the Gods, in my experience. A give and take relationship is the most effective and respectful way I have found of working with them.Lora O'Brien Favour Of God Sayings By Lora O'Brien: It's all about the relationships; forming them and sustaining them, growing and building a back
God turned the adversity into a blessing. What a divine intervention?Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: God turned the adversity into a blessing. What a divine intervention?
Prayer is the converse of the soul with God. Therein we manifest or express to Him our reverence, and love for His divine perfection, our gratitude for all His mercies, our penitence for our sins, our hope in His forgiving love, our submission to His authority, our confidence in His care, our desires for His favour, and for the providential and spiritual blessings needed for ourselves and others.Charles Hodge Favour Of God Sayings By Charles Hodge: Prayer is the converse of the soul with God. Therein we manifest or express to
problematic within post-Reformation dogmatics. Is faith something I 'do' to earn God's favour, and, if not, what role does it play? Once we release Paul's justification-language from the burden of having to describe 'how someone becomes a Christian', however, this is simply no longer a problem. There is no danger of imagining that Christian faith is after all a surrogate 'work', let alone a substitute form of moral righteousness. Faith is the badge of covenant membership, not something someone 'performs' as a kind of initiation test.N. T. Wright Favour Of God Sayings By N. T. Wright: problematic within post-Reformation dogmatics. Is faith something I 'do' to earn God's favour, and, if
CHAPTER THREE SIN USHERS MAN TO DEATH But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 6:22-23 As Lust got older, Grandpa Earth would yield his treasures to her; everything precious that he stored, he would render to his firstborn grandchild. Lust became very wealthy incomparable to every other living being including her dad. She employed many of her siblings, and advised them of how to make great success as her employees. Despite her favour with her granddad, she did not receive the same preferential treatment from Grandma Sun.Stephen Domena Favour Of God Sayings By Stephen Domena: CHAPTER THREE SIN USHERS MAN TO DEATH But now that you have been set free
For Paul, the centre of the Christian faith was that we can never earn or deserve the favour of God, nor do we need to. The whole matter is one of grace, and all that we can do is to accept in wondering love and gratitude and trust what God has done for us.William Barclay Favour Of God Sayings By William Barclay: For Paul, the centre of the Christian faith was that we can never earn or
I had never deserved to be forgiven in the first place when I aas converted. I could do nothing to merit God's favour, His grace, His love. If all I had ever known was unmerited and undeserved grace, how could I then forfeit that which I never earned?... Was I too proud, in some strange, inverted way to humble myself to accept an unmerited forgiveness? I know that it was all of grace, yet my inner being wanted the right to do something to merit it. I was trying to work out my own salvation, to earn God's forgiveness, to prove the sincerity of my repentance...At last I knew that it was true. It was not based on my feeling or on my emotions. It was not dependent on my faith or my obedience. In no way could I merit or deserve it. He loved me. He knew me through and through, better than I knew myself, and yet still, He loved me. Christ died on Calvary to tell me that. Christ lives in Heaven, an unceasing intercessor on my behalf to make that love real to me in my experience.Helen Roseveare Favour Of God Sayings By Helen Roseveare: I had never deserved to be forgiven in the first place when I aas converted.
In the light of love, I find the glory of God's grace.Lailah Gifty Akita Favour Of God Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: In the light of love, I find the glory of God's grace.
I'm in favour of religion as a tamer of arrogance. For a Greek Orthodox, the idea of God as creator outside the human is not God in God's terms. My God isn't the God of George Bush.Nassim Nicholas Taleb Favour Of God Sayings By Nassim Nicholas Taleb: I'm in favour of religion as a tamer of arrogance. For a Greek Orthodox, the
Faith is a living, bold trust in God's grace, so certain of God's favour that it would risk death a thousand times trusting in it. Such confidence and knowledge of God's grace makes you happy, joyful and bold in your relationship to God and all creatures. The Holy Spirit makes this happen through faith. Because of it, you freely, willingly and joyfully do good to everyone, serve everyone, suffer all kinds of things, love and praise the God who has shown you such grace.Martin Luther Favour Of God Sayings By Martin Luther: Faith is a living, bold trust in God's grace, so certain of God's favour that
Brutal storms may come from the four corners of universe, try to destroy and sweep away everything you ever worked for and even threaten to destroy your entire life. But when the 'The Universe Holder/Storm Calmer' shows up everything changes, becomes still and works in your favour. God is a God of rescue (Psalm 40).Euginia Herlihy Favour Of God Sayings By Euginia Herlihy: Brutal storms may come from the four corners of universe, try to destroy and sweep
