Law of Attraction vs. Favor
The “Law of Attraction” is said to be a kind of cosmic “energy” that attracts people and opportunities to you.
In reality, biblical favor is the attraction of God to us that releases influence through us, so that other people are inclined to like, trust and cooperate with us—in the assignment God has for each of us!
This favor isn’t “earthly”—it’s a God given supernatural force that makes us a magnet.
Let’s look at two aspects of this phenomenon:
What influence do we want to have? Is our intent to manipulate or to bless? It is possible to guide people into particular experiences and thoughts. We can structure the transaction to serve ourselves. But that’s a far cry from what God actually does.
He desires for us to move in a spirit of favor and operate from a place of wanting to bless—instead of wanting to gèt something from other people.
Hebrews 4:12 says “the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged
sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
No matter how “pure” we think we are, there is One who weighs our motivations. We need to ask ourselves, “Do I have the character to sustain the influence God has given me?”
The Lord wants to entrust increase to His people and He wants to entrust it in a way that doesn’t destroy us when we get it. Remember that he who is faithful with little will be trusted with much—this includes our influence with those God has placed in our path (Luke 16:10). God desires for us to prosper in business and in relationships; be faithful to the calling He has set in our hearts.
Favor is a form of currency with which we can supercharged alliances, if stewarded properly. These alliances get us where we want to go, faster.
One of the greatest gifts that we could ever receive is the gift of favor and the power of supernatural attraction.
