Daily Devotional – 10/26/15 “Favor over fame!”

I’d rather have favor over fame! See, favor can take away the labor while fame adds to it. Favor can take my name into places I’ve yet to step in. Fame, if not handled correctly, can put my name in places it doesn’t belong. Favor can’t be taken from me no matter how many times I fall but fame can be taken if I fall. With favor I don’t have to tell folk who I am but with fame, folk will try to tell me who I’m not. Oh, I’d rather have favor over fame. See, favor can get me places man can’t remove me from but fame can take me places man can. When you’re favored by God, there are no limits because God sets no boundaries but when you’re in fame, there’s a fine line not to cross. Yea, there are some worldly benefits to having fame but it also comes with burdens. With favor, it forms the work for my hands to do but fame just makes me work. With favor, I can ask and it’ll be given but with fame, I may seek but not find.

This is why I’d rather have favor over fame. Fame can get my name in lights but favor can light my life. Fame can get me on the red carpet but favor can set me on the path of righteousness. Fame can put money in my account but favor can give me access to a never-ending supply of blessings. Fame may get me in the door but favor is what keeps me there. Fame may get me a drink but favor gives me access to a well that never runs dry. Fame may get me to the table but favor allows me to have a seat. I’d rather have favor for I’ll continue to cry out like Psalm 106:4 that say, “Remember me, LORD, when you show favor to your people; come near and rescue me.” I’ll petition the throne of grace and say like Abraham did in Genesis 18:3, “If I have found favor in your eyes, my Lord, do not pass your servant by.” I’d rather have favor of fame because with fame it’s about my name but with favor, it’s tied to my life!
