Do you ever wonder what it takes to live a truly blessed life? A life full of joy, fulfillment, and God’s supernatural favor?

Many desire it, but few discover the keys to unlocking it.

In my early walk with God, I struggled to understand His favor. Why did some Christians seem to live in abundance while I faced challenge after challenge? What was I missing?

After hitting rock bottom and crying out to God, He began unveiling powerful truths from His Word. Principles that transformed how I understood His favor.

Soon, the tests turned to testimonies. The trials gave way to miracles. Closed doors became open gates.

As I applied what I learned, everything changed. I began walking in levels of God’s favor I never thought possible!

And you can too.

In this post, I’ll share the 5 life-changing principles I discovered for living in God’s supernatural favor.

Principle 1: Seek God First

Seek God First

Jesus said it clearly:

“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

God rewards those who put Him first. When you seek His Kingdom above all else, you align with His plans and purposes for your life.

This will usher in His favor. Divine connections, supernatural provision, and blessings beyond your wildest dreams.

But what does it mean to put God first?

It goes beyond Sunday church attendance. Seeking God requires dedicating time to prayer, worship, and studying His Word. It means surrendering your will to His in every decision you make.

As you align your life with His truth, you’ll position yourself to experience the fullness of His amazing favor.

Principle 2: Trust God’s Timing

Trusting God's Timing

Human logic tells us faster is better. But God often makes us wait to prepare us for what He has in store.

When I endured year after year of setbacks and job rejections, I doubted whether God heard my prayers at all.

But in hindsight, I can see how He was orchestrating events perfectly behind the scenes. Only when I surrendered my timeline to Him did His favor manifest in my life.

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time…though it tarry, wait for it.”

Habakkuk 2:3 (NKJV)

Trusting God’s timing requires faith. But those who wait upon the Lord will reap a bountiful harvest of blessings when His favor arrives.

Principle 3: Walk in Obedience

Walking in Obedience

Many Christians pray for blessings while living in disobedience. But that’s not how God’s favor works.

“Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.”

Psalm 128:1 (NIV)

Obedience is the proof of genuine faith. God entrusts His favor to those who obey His Word wholeheartedly – not selectively.

Understanding this transformed how I approached His commands. As I pursued holiness and surrendered areas I once withheld, I noticed bigger breakthroughs and testimonies unfolding.

Do you want the Lord’s favor? Then walk blamelessly by His Spirit in loving obedience to His Word.

Principle 4: Cultivate Gratitude

Cultivate Gratitude

Gratitude is potent. It shifts your focus from lack to all God has done. This posture touches God’s heart and activates greater blessings.

I learned this when I was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago. As fear gripped me, God impressed upon me to give thanks instead of panicking.

To my surprise, supernatural peace flooded my soul. Within a few months, my health was not only restored but better than before!

Gratitude magnifies God’s goodness, releasing His miraculous favor. It’s impossible to stay discouraged when you count your blessings!

Principle 5: Align With God’s Will

Align With God’s Will

Lastly, to live under an open heaven of favor, you must subordinate your dreams to God’s vision for your life.

I sensed early on that business was my calling. But pursuing my own path led nowhere. Only when I surrendered and sought God’s will did things finally accelerate.

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Romans 12:2 (NIV)

It’s scary giving up control, but nothing compares to the excitement of being directly in the center of God’s favor according to His will.

When you yield yourself fully to Him, you’ll become unstoppable!
