Women and Commandments: Commandment 2 - The Black Hand Lucky Charm ✍🏽
“You shall not make for yourself a divine image ….” Exodus 20:4
When I was a child, I wore a black hand pendent on a necklace to protect me from the evil eye. There’s something magnetic about amulets. It seems like a tangible god with each day I’m protected. But I thank God that protection and provision comes by favor from an unseen God above. I thank Him for the blessing of being simultaneously taught that “whatever I ask for in prayer, If I believe that I receive it, then it is mine.” (Mark 11:24) and that… Jesus taught us how to personally pray directly to The Father (Matt 6:9-13; Luke 5:16; Matt 6:5-7) at any time (Ephesians 6:18) because we are a royal priesthood. (1 Peter 2:5)
Its very human to feel a need for a God we can completely see, but ... we are in a complete mode of intimate worship, fully ready to receive supernatural insight, when we believe although we can’t fully see. It’s called Faith. “And faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)
True and complete obedience requires faith. “I have chosen the way of faithfulness. I have set my heart on your laws.” (Psalm 119:30)
And when we have faith, I believe we receive the favor of God.
And when we have the favor of God, we don’t need an idol. We don’t need luck.
I love the song “God Favored Me” by Hezekiah Walker and The Love Fellowship Choir. Its “my song” …. and I just realized that its written by a musician I went to high school with (Jules Bartholemew): “I speak life and prosperity and I speak health (God Favors Me)”
God favors the courageous, the obedient, the loving speaker of life, prosperity and health.
Are you choosing the way of faithfulness?
Are you setting your heart on His laws?
God is ready to favor you.
