To walk in the will of God is to walk in His Favor. The Favor of God will last a lifetime - "For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning (Psalm 30:5 NLT).” The Nature of God is to give, and we possess His nature – if we are saved! Give and it shall be given…
Concerning giving the Amplified Version of the Bible says it this way, “And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity (2 Corinthians 9:8). Think about that, All Grace [Every Favor and Earthly Blessing], coming your way!
Now in Isaiah Chapter fifty-four, God is telling the Children of Israel to “Break Forth into Singing” and to “Stretch Forth in Expansion” while they are still in a lowly state. God is ready to do big in the midst of despair. He must be bigger than your circumstance – and He is! Situations and circumstances are temporal. God is Eternal! Start being thankful and grateful if you haven’t been. The Lord’s Favor is at hand.
“On the way Jehoshaphat stopped and said, “Listen to me, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm. Believe in his prophets, and you will succeed.””
2 Chronicles 20:20 NLT
