This is a question I’ve been wrestling with lately.
For the most part, I know what to do when life gets tough, when things go awry, when ministry isn’t working the way it should be (or at least you THINK it should be).
I know what to do when it seems God is distant and absent. I know what to do when there is confusion or a lack of clarity.
But honestly, I don’t know what to do when God’s favor and blessing seems to be pouring out in abundance.
I get squeamish. Uncomfortable.
Maybe I’m waiting for it to go bad again. For things to turn towards the worse. For something to be messed up.
It’s as if I can’t simply bask in the favor of God and enjoy it for the moment’s sake. For God’s sake.
If our chief end is to “glorify God, and enjoy Him forever,” am I glorifying God by shrugging off his favor?
What do you do with God’s favor? How do you respond?
