To Find Favor In God’s Eyes

Part of Exodus 33:17 states, “And the LORD said to Moses, ‘This very thing that you have spoken I will do, for you have found favor in my sight…'” (ESV.)

God told Moses that he had “found favor” in His sight.

We also read in Genesis 6:8, “But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.”

The angel told Mary, the future mother of Jesus:

“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end” (Luke 1:30-33).

Mary “found favor with God,” too.

Actually, if Moses, Noah, or Mary, or any person would find favor in God’s eyes, it’s because of God’s grace or mercy — not of his or her worthiness.

God’s attracts. Because of His grace, today, we could also find favor eyes in His eyes though we are unworthy to receive His blessing. As we read in in Ephesians 2:8-9:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
