Experiencing the Life God Wants You to Have
His Favor Is Always at Work for You
If illness strikes, finances crumble or your marriage falls apart, do you feel as though God has abandoned you? Does it seem as if others attract His blessing, but not you? Are you resigned to thinking that some sin, or even a curse, must be separating you from God's favor?
In this eye-opening, empowering book, Gary Wilkerson, pastor and president of World Challenge, paints a brighter, more biblical picture of what God's favor truly is. He shows how your loving Father showers His abundant resources upon you through forgiveness, grace, restoration, peace, power and authority. God does so, explains Wilkerson, not only to bless you with a favored, happy life, but also to make you a joyful demonstration of His favor to others--showing the beauty of His unearned grace to a hurting, unbelieving world.

"I have known Gary Wilkerson for almost 25 years, and in the last few I have had the pleasure of traveling to many places and ministering with him. Gary has found something of God that is quite enviable. He has found not only a depth of Christ's love for himself but also a love from God that freely flows through him to others. In other words, he has discovered God's favor. I have witnessed the tears of joy, release and healing flowing down the cheeks of waiters and strangers as Gary speaks and prays with them.

"Using examples from Scripture and life, Gary takes us on a journey to understanding the ultimate favor of God by encouraging us to walk in an attitude of favor to the revelation of God's ultimate favor, His very presence. A refreshing, recommended read!"
Jerry Nance, Ph.D., president and CEO, Global Teen Challenge
"Gary Wilkerson has been a dear friend for decades. What you are reading is not something worked out at a desk but something lived out in real life. What Gary writes he believes, and what Gary believes becomes part of his everyday life. What makes God's Favor an exciting read is that it's personal. Gary tells his story. It's not easy to read at times, but God's favor seems to always come through. God's Favor is refreshingly honest, scripturally insightful and constantly challenging. On these pages you will find favor when it seems there is none in sight."
