Bishop TD Jakes - Sermon: You Are Blessed And Highly Favored
God is disruptive by nature. You must TRUST HIM, that his plan is better than yours. Labor brings pain and pain always brings forth a birth in you! There are 4 R’s that will determine if you are blessed and highly favored. R - Receiving the Word of God. Without faith, you will not be able to receive the Word of God. The Word comes that we may learn how to live in a contemporary society with ageless principles. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of GOD! R - Resilience - You are in process and have to be resilient. You need hope. Be resilient enough to take the risk of receiving the LOVE of someone who hurt you. Most people fail because they lack being resilient. If favor does not come quick, they leave. Stay the course and ride it out, the blessing is near. R - Rejection. There is no rejection like the rejection you receive when you need something. Joseph was rejected by the ones that should have embraced him. Being favored does not mean that you will not be rejected. Rejection is a part of the process. R - Redemption - The thing that is in you right now, will deliver you. Your gift will make room for you. The devil does not want you to birth what God put in you because once you deliver it, it will deliver you! What are you carrying inside of you that would answer the prayer you have been praying? Release the promise you have been carrying? You are blessed and highly favored.
