What does it mean to have favor with God?
February 24, 2016 A.D.
When the angel Gabriel came to Mary, he said that She was, “full of grace,” and that She had “found favor with God.”
When Gabriel came to Mary’s humble home, the messenger of God told Her that She was, “full of grace,” and that She had “found favor with God.” What does it mean to be favored by God? It means that God listens to our prayers and answers them in our best interest, according to His law. However, today, many Christians are wringing their hands wondering why in the public square, in every nation, Christians are losing battle after battle. A Friend of Medjugorje writes:
“…Our Lady said October 25, 1993:
“It is false to believe one can remain a Christian and govern, pronouncing edicts through these positions that are contrary to Christian belief. The righteous have failed God. Therefore, in doing so, we have failed as a people. Nations of the earth are in serious crisis. The crisis is not because of economics, recessions, depressions, the taking over of our governments by corrupt people, etc. These are fruits of something else…
“…The nations of the world are all producing an abundance of bad fruit. Our Lady has come to show us we are at fault, not the wicked. They are prevailing because of us. Our Lady shows us how to conquer them. How? By our living true holiness based on all Ten Commandments.
“When was the last time you sat down and read the Ten Commandments—the cure, with prayer, for all the world’s problems? These ten laws of God vs. millions of laws of man…” 1
This Lent, make a return to God’s Commandments. Stop in your day, read His Commandments, compare your life to them, and make whatever adjustments need to be made. We will then find favor with God and Our Lady will be able to help us before His throne.
In the Love of Our Lady,
