Favor From the Lord - Proverbs 12.2

Proverbs12.2 says, A good man obtains favor from the LORD, but the LORD condemns a crafty man." I love the thought of FAVOR FROM THE LORD. I first heard this idea from a team mate of mine who said she felt like I was experiencing the "favor of the Lord". I love this truth, this thought, this idea. I want so much to be a good man and to enjoy the favor of the Lord.
I asked, "what does favor look and feel like?" I thought of many things...Forgive the bullets.
1. Love from God and a relationship with Him
2. Jesus Christ
3. The Holy Spirit and His fruit of love, joy, peace, patience etc...
4. The Scriptures
5. Grace & Peace
6. Faith, Hope and Love
7. Oneness with Debbie
8. My children and grandchildren
9. Friends & relationships
10. A good work & ministry to do
11. Influence & Impact
12. Wisdom & understanding
13. Righteousness
14. Purpose
15. Wealth & Riches
16. Honor & Respect
17. Opportunity & Responsibility
18. Authority
19. Truth & True Self
20. A Clear identity
When I consider these things, I deeply feel the favor of the Lord on my life. I am humbled and eternally grateful for His grace and mercy towards me.
