God’s Favor & His Kingdom

And a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom. Daniel 7:22

The prophet Daniel described a coming time when God would reveal His favor to the saints by giving them possession of the kingdom. That time was realized 500 years later when Jesus introduced His ministry to the hometown folks and concluded His remarks with the proclamation of a new era called …the favorable year of the LORD. Later He consoles His nervous followers by saying, “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” Luke 12:32. Being favored by God implies that an opportunity to receive the kingdom of God has come to you in some way. Mary, an innocent God-fearing teenager, was called blessed and highly favored by the angel Gabriel and then given the assignment of literally “carrying” the kingdom by becoming pregnant with Jesus. God’s favor will stretch and challenge you but if you determine to have Mary’s response, Let it be to me according to your word, you will carry the kingdom in increasing measure.
