Paul Enenche 2016 : Discover the purpose of God for your life

SCRIPTURE: For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. – Psalms 5:12.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Favour is kindness shown to someone beyond what is due or usual.
 
Favour is the act of kindness shown to someone beyond what is due or usual. Vision, on the other hand, is a mental picture of a preferred future. 
 
It has been confirmed that favour travels with vision. Men and women of vision are men and women of favour. 
 
Daniel was character in the Bible who was a man of vision, and was followed by favour. In Daniel chapter 1:8, the Bible tells us how Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the king’s food; it shows us a man of purpose and vision. And in verse 9, Daniel got favour: ‘Now God had brought Daniel into favour….with the prince of the eunuchs.’
 
To be a person of vision, therefore, is to be a person of favour. The favour of God on the life of Daniel made him not only to be loved by God but also loved by men. Daniel’s exploits spanned through the generations of four different kings because he was a man of vision and favour.
