 #noflavornofavor Matthew 5:13 (KJV)

13  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

The quote "blessed and highly favored" is often used as cliché to self pronounce God's favor however it's original usage was not self pronounced but was pronounced by the Angel Gabriel to Mary  (Luke 1:28 (KJV) 
28  And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.) who certainly would be among the salt of the earth in my view,  so #noflavornofavor is a rebuttal to self proclaimers who don't don't display the flavor of Godly virtues in their lives so they would be cast out and trodden under foot of men.
additional ref. for prayful consideration Psalm 5:12 (KJV) 
12  For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.    Proverbs 12:2 (KJV) 
2  A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.    Jeremiah 16:13 (KJV) 
13  Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour.

Fear no evil..

2Ti 4:17 — 2Ti 4:18
17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Shameful

Judges 9:54
54 Then he called hastily unto the young man his armourbearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died.

Some people would even spin their death..

Last Post of 2018

God Has Brought us to the eve of 2019, may His love and mercies take us through it. IJN

Lamentations 3:21-26 (KJV)
21  This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22  It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24  The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25  The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26  It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

Pray from the heart

Today's Meditation
1 Kings 8:28 (KJV)
28  Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:

Psalm 35:13 (KJV)
13  But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

Meditation

Isaiah 58:2 (KJV)
2  Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.
