Sometimes the favor of God involves things getting difficult , even losing stuff,hardships....maybe even having a target on our back when the anointing of God comes on our life. Sometimes it is the honor of God God favors us to go through these times.It does not mean we don't have his favor, but that He knows we can handle it, and come out as pure gold. A new definition for favor must include that what we go though only moves us closer to our destiny that God has for us. Read up on King David...even though he was anointed king, it would be several years before he ever was king over all of Israel [ all 12 tribes] This Lenten seasons go to your stronghold.. cry unto the Lord and he will show favor!
Because the tomb is empty!
