And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. —Luke 2:52
Wow, to think that the Lord of glory took on a body (Hebrews 10:5) and went through the growth process of any ordinary person. Yet He was far from being any ordinary man (John 5:18). Still, we are told that Jesus, just like people do, grew mentally and physically. But Jesus also grew “in favor with God and man.”
Hopefully we are growing in wisdom. These days we are in will help us do that if we have the right attitude and desire. Our world is being affected by this corona virus. Brothers and sisters we need the wisdom from God and His favor, His grace, to wade through these days and be affective for Him and helpful to others. May our Lord give us favor with man as we seek to serve Him and people. May we seek our Lord in these things and be faithful to His desires for us.
Dear Father we need Your favor, Your wisdom and favor with man to serve You in these days. Please help us to be sensitive, not only what to be, but also how to serve others during this time. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
