Law of Gravity Vs Law of Divine Favour

Divine Favour

I have been taken aback severally by these two laws of life: Gravity and Divine Favour. The former thrives on a natural principle of ‘whatever goes up comes down.’ The latter has its thrust on ‘divine grace and goodwill of the ancient of days.’

My attempt here is not to bore you with any fallacy, but to observe the correlation between these two unique laws. Some things we do or some things we are involved seemed static and looks the same way over and over again. Have you ever imagined that such routine processes could get a new dimension?

Practically, natural laws are meant to be obeyed or else, calamity or unpleasant situations might just spring up. Nature has a very big advantage over humanity. Even though humanity can try to get ahead sometimes, but trust me, the sledgehammer would eventually come. This analogy takes its root from the law of gravity. However, law of divine favour says, you can get ahead without any repercussion from your action if you are favoured.

The law of gravity describes that ‘when you go up, you must come down.’ But why can’t one be suspended for a while or even permanently? Well, it is impossible to remain up there because it is contrary to natural law.

The law of gravity is natural. Law of divine favour is supernatural. God controls these two phenomena and can decide to suspend one if He chooses to do so.

So how do we now have law of divine favour coming into play to outshine an established (static) law of nature, in a natural setting? This is confusing, but my confusion was soon given a light. The light is in form of questions which I asked myself: who controls nature and divinity? What is the obtainable relationship between these two? Can there be a compromise between them? I guess you know the responses.

The law of gravity is natural. Law of divine favour is supernatural. God controls these two phenomena and can decide to suspend one if He chooses to do so. In other words, every natural law, including that of gravity can be suspended if God wants to bring a change in our lives. An instance of this is the ‘last becoming the first and the first becoming the last.’ In another example, an unqualified person (paper qualification) may suddenly become the head of an organization, to the surprise of others who are more qualified.

To this end, law of divine favour supersedes the law of gravity. When the time is right for this to be done, nothing stops it. Humanity should therefore be aware that CHANGE is the only thing that is constant in life. And, when it comes, it brings along suspension of natural laws. You and I can go up and remain there, if God’s favour is at work. I pray this day that every natural law will be put on hold for our divine uplifting. Amen!

Sharing is caring. Share the joy!
