Luke 2:52, Proverbs 16:7
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man. *When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. 

Author PhotoThe word 'protocol' refers to an order or to the correct process by which things are to be done. If you want real favour in life, you must prioritize finding favour with God above finding favour with men. The favour you have with God is what produces real favour in every area of your life and the peace you have with God produces real peace in every other area of your life. That is the correct protocol.

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to dishonor God in exchange for favour with King Nebuchadnezzar and God honoured their faith in Him. They eventually found real favour both with God and with man. God showed up in their fiery furnace and King Nebuchadnezzar ended up promoting them in his kingdom, Dan.3:1630. When King Asa took wealth out of God's temple to bribe the king of Syria to support him against king Baasha, God sent prophet Hanani to declare unto him that the LORD keeps close watch over the whole world, to give strength to those whose hearts are loyal to him. You have acted foolishly, and so from now on you will always be at war," 2Chronicles 16:9 (GNB).

Do not act foolishly. In your desire for favour in life, put God first. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and every other thing shall be added unto you. Make trusting and pleasing God your priority. God will make a way where there seems to be no way. When God opens a door for you, no man can shut it. Revelation 3:8 says, I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Don't make men your God. Acts 5:29 says, then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

PRAYER FOCUS: Declare unto God today that He is your God and that you will continually seek to trust and honour Him above all else.
