I was playing cards the other night with some friends. One lady kept getting great hands. I said, “You are blessed, and highly favored!” We all laughed, but then the very next round she got another great hand. I said it again. After realizing that she was doing great, I quit saying it about her and begin professing it for myself. I started getting good hands.
Yes, I know, it was a card game, but I sensed truth was again revealed to me. We have power in the words we say. Blessings and curses can come from the same source, our mouths. Being blessed and highly favored is more than mere words. It’s a way of life. It’s being with the Lord and the Lord being with you. It’s desiring him more and his will for your life above all other things. That’s how Mary, the mother of Jesus lived.
“And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.” (Luk 1:28 KJV+)
Are you blessed, and highly favored? I hope so.
