And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish Thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish Thou it,” (Psalm 90:14-17).
6. Favor Is An Exception To The Rule, Not A Normality. Millions struggle without seeing significant progress. “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it,” (Psalm 127:1).

11. Favor Will Increase Dramatically When You Aggressively Cooperate With The Laws Of God. “And Moses said unto the Lord, See, Thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and Thou hast not let me know whom Thou wilt send with me. Yet Thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in My sight. Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in Thy sight, shew me now Thy way, that I may know Thee, that I may find grace in Thy sight: and consider that this nation is Thy people. And He said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest,” (Exodus 33:12-14) If you live in disobedience to the principles of God...You repel the current of favor.

Because you will receive your reward
