About:
Learn how declaring God's love will bless you with favor and fulfillment in this uplifting book--perfect for anyone who is determined to find success and spiritual inspiration.
God helps you accomplish what you couldn't manage on your own. With His blessings, you stand out in the crowd and get breaks that you didn't deserve. The psalmist said, "God's favor surrounds us like a shield." That means that everywhere you go, you have an advantage, a divine empowerment, and a key to open up the right doors. With Joel's encouragement, you'll see how God's goodness uplifts you every day. He wants you to reach new levels of fulfillment, new levels of increase, new levels of promotion, new levels of victory. You have been called out, set apart, and chosen to live a distinctively favored life.
When you realize you have been marked for blessings, you will feel the force of His favor and overcome challenges that you can't face on your own.

My Thoughts:
The Power of Favor: The Force That Will Take You Where You Can't Go on Your Own by Joel Osteen is a great book about the favor of God in your life. Joel breads positivity and encouragement in this book towards the reader, which is great, especially if you are going through a difficult season in life. This book is all about how God wants to bless His children and while I think Joel takes the power of favor a little too far in the way that he writes, the concept is correct. God does want to bless His kids. He does want to give us favor in our lives. The concept in this book is true, but the methods of how God blesses and gives favor doesn't always look like the way that Joel describes, thus giving the reader a sense of a false perspective. I think this book has some great positive points, but it also has some things to be mindful of when reading.
