God Favored Me

Last week was an incredibly good week for me, even though I am confined as Inmate #36223-001 at the Federal Correctional Institution in LaTuna, Texas. God favored me in a big way in spite of the hatred of my enemies. In fact, last week was one of the best weeks of my life.


Gospel singer, The Reverend Hezekiah Walker, wrote and performed a song that actually tells the story of how "God Favored Me" throughout my ordeal. Walker's words in this song ring so true in my case. I dedicate "God Favored Me" to all of those true Christians and people of faith who must constantly struggle under unrelenting persecution by their enemies and who must persevere under the most difficult of circumstances in life.


Here are the lyrics to Walker's gospel classic, "God Favored Me:" [Click here to listen to Hezekiah perform this song as you read along]



This is my testimony everybody, how God favored me in spite Of my enemies, and if God did it for me he'll do the Same thing for you. Don't worry about your haters your haters Can't do nothing with you. Listen to these words


Love is patient, caring. Love is Kind. Love is felt most when It's genuine, but I've had my share of love, abuse, manipulated And it's strength misused, and I can't help but give you glory When I think about my story, and I know you favored me Because my enemies did try but couldn't triumph over me Yes they did try but couldn't triumph over me.


They whispered, conspired, they told their lies (God favors me) My character, my integrity, my faith in God (He favors me) Will not fall, will not bend, won't compromise (God favors me) I speak life and prosperity and I speak health (God favors me)


They whispered, conspired, they told their lies (God favors me) My character, my integrity, my faith in God (He favors me) Will not fall, will not bend, won't compromise (God favors me) I speak life and prosperity and I speak health (God favors me)


They whispered, conspired, they told their lies (God favors me) My character, my integrity, my faith in God (He favors me) Will not fall, will not bend, won't compromise (God favors me) I speak life and prosperity and I speak health (God favors me)


Say Yes (Yes), Yes (Yes), Yes (Yes) God favors me Say Yes (Yes), Yes (Yes), Say Yes (Yes) God favors me (God favors me) Repeat 2 xs


I don't know what you're going through, but I want you to know tonight

You got favor (God favors me)

In your trial, in your test, in your hard times don't worry

(God favors me)

Attack your character, attack your integrity don't worry no no

(God favors me)

Touch your neighbor, encourage the person next to ya

Tell em I got it, Tell em I got it, and I can say yes (yes) Say ya will (yes)


Because I got favor (yes), favor (yes) I got it, (yes) I got it, I got it, I got it (God favors me)

I got it (yes) and the Lord gave it to me (yes) ) don't you let the evilness of your haters bring you down (God favors me)


No matter what hell we experience in life, please remember this: God is always stronger than our enemies. During our darkest hour, God will always guide us to the other side of midnight. All we have to do is believe in Him and receive His unconditional love.
