And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man (Luke 2:52 KJV).

Favour means to show beneficence towards a person. Favour can also be referred to as exceptional kindness and privilege from God.

Most persons in a bid to win favour engage in some unbecoming acts - you can't win favour that way.

You can't win favour by being a cynic in expressing honour to the poor and then generous in expressing honour to celebrities.

You can't win favour when you slander someone.

If people tend to show you favour when you have made others to feel insignificant before them - it is not favour you have received, what you have done is call MANIPULATION. It doesn't last long because you laid a wrong foundation.

The truth is that anything hidden will be surely exposed. You can't build a house on a weak foundation and with substandard materials and you expect the house to last long.

Favour before man is partnership between you and God. 

Studies show that about 80% of people who lose their jobs do so, not for lack of technical ability to do the job, but for their inability to get along with their bosses, colleagues, and customers. While some have a hard time getting along with people, others carry an aura of warmth and attraction everywhere they go. Everywhere they go, they find favour with men.

Having people favourably disposed to you gives you a fair advantage in life. It helps you get more done, leveraging on the freely given friendship, experience and resources of others.

3 ways to win Favour with man:

“When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him” (Proverbs 16:7KJV).

1. CHARACTER: Your character is a gateway to experiencing favour with men. I am talking of the way you love, honour and respect everyone around you - your loyalty to people, your diligence in your duty and your facial expression of a kind look. David was a man with an indisputable character of loyalty to God and man.  He had the opportunity to kill Saul his enemy three times but He refused to lay his hand on God's anointed. Joseph also had the opportunity of sleeping with Potipahar's wife but He didn't - he feared God. The summary of  character is to fear God and live to honour Him in all you do.

"A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men" (Proverbs 18:16 KJV).

2. BE A SOLUTION: People have problems; be a person who can solve them. Make use of your gifts to be a problem solver. When you are dexterous in what you are gifted in, people will look for you. People will love you because you are adding value to their lives and will want to be around you. David gained access to King Saul because he was recommended as a dexterous musician. What is it that you got to offer that when people need it they will knock on your door. It was the ability of Joseph to interpret dreams that made him a prime minister in Egypt.

"But the Lord was with Joseph, and he [though a slave] was a successful and prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian" (Genesis 39:2 AMP).

3. HIS PRESENCE: Character and Being a Solution are the part which you have to do diligently by His ability in you. When doing this you need His presence to cause the doors to be opened for you - the convictions in the heart of men to favour you. It was said of Joseph and David that they had His presence - this was what made them to be favoured by even their enemies.

So, don't think of manipulating anyone to climb up the ladder of success, thereby bringing others down.

Be conscious of who you are and live in this light - You are favoured.

You deserve to be loved, you are worth the Blood of Jesus. Your value is in Him not in your achievements or personality.

God my Father is loving. He is so in love with you dear. Stay in His love.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ and experience His love for you by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen.

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
