How To Get God's Favor (Fire & Fruit)

Favor - unearned, uncommon, unexplainable, unusual ACCESS 

Fire that leads to favor that leads to fruit.

Fire refines us.

Just how they allow fire to heat up gold so the impurities rise up to the top.

8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. 9 Now God had brought Daniel into the favor and goodwill of the chief of the eunuchs. 10 And the chief of the eunuchs said to Daniel, “I fear my lord the king, who has appointed your food and drink. For why should he see your faces looking worse than the young men who are your age? Then you would endanger my head before the king.” (Daniel 1:8-10)


Forge - to make, to shape through beating heating or hammering

6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, 8 whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:6-9)

3 The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, But the Lord tests the hearts. (Proverbs 17:3) NKJV

3 Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the Lord tests the heart. (Proverbs 17:3) NLT

21 The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, And a man is valued by what others say of him. Proverbs 21:27) NKJV

21 Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but a person is tested by being praised. (Proverbs 21:27) NLT

4 Remove the impurities from silver, and the sterling will be ready for the silversmith. (Proverbs 25:4) NLT

Why Jesus comes with fire on earth?

49 “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished! (Luke 12:49-50) 

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” (Matthew 3:11-12)

Benefits of God’s Favor

#1 Wisdom

4 And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:4) 

1 My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. 2 If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying. 3 Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. 4 Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation. (Proverbs 3:1-4) NLT

#2 Wife 

22 The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord. (Proverbs 18:22) NLT

A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold. (Proverbs 22:1) NKJV
