Something to think about.
The Favor of God
11 I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you. Psalms 199:11
To receive Gods blessings, you must know Him, to know him you need to know His word. Our comprehension of His word needs to be more than just a rare encounter. If we do not sin against Him, we are then in position to receive His favor. It still works today store His word in your heart that you may not sin against Him.
