Psalm 102:13 NKJV “ You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come.”
The word favor as defined by the dictionary has the following meanings, 1. A gracious, friendly, or obliging act that is freely granted. 2a. Friendly or favorable regard; approval or support . b. A state of being held in such regard 3. Unfair partiality; favoritism.
David as a prophet spoke of a prophetic timetable in God’s calendar, the “set time”, referring to a season programmed for God’s free flowing grace towards His children and His people. As a believer you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, and per the Scriptures, “surely the Lord will bless the righteous and surround him with favor as a shield” (Psalm 5:12). Favor is a heritage of the child of God. Favor is that grace (enabling power of God) upon the life of an individual that will cause a person to have partial treatment in any situation. Favor lifts one up- Psalm 89:17 “For You are the glory of their strength, And in Your favor our horn is exalted.”
Jesus upon declaring public His ministry read from the writings of Isaiah, saying, “The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me…To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound].” This is a reference to the set time! It’s the prophetic season of God’s divine intervention in areas of your life. Every delay in your life, God is pronouncing judgment on the spirits. The free favors of God profusely abound in your life. Every day you have been sick, missed work, or fallen short, God is bringing recompense for all the lost wages, joy and happiness.
Now is the day of salvation, and now is the season of favor (2 Cor.6:2)! Plug in with your faith, by right make a demand through the name of Jesus on what’s due you for all that you may have lost in life.
