Because we are children of God, we walk in the favor of God.  What a blessing!  You say, “Well I’m not seeing God’s favor in my life”.  We won’t see His favor in a great way if we are not walking hand in hand with Him.  Many times in the Bible He says He will order our steps, show us the way, give us knowledge of witty inventions, but we ignore Him.  We think we can do it ourselves!  We often have to make many missteps before we understand that God knows more than we do!   It is amazing that we think we are so “smart”!  May we always remember that God knows the end from the beginning and let Him lead the way.
