“For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield”
Who you are and everything you have is the result of God’s favor. He has blessed you with every spiritual blessing (Eph. 1:3). You are surrounded by His grace.
Your Abba wants to take you as His precious child right up next to His heart today. He will keep you close and make His face shine on you and be gracious to you (Num. 6:24-25). Your Father smiles on you with His compassion as you seek Him (Isa. 30:18).
Your Father’s providence goes before you to provide for every need. He is with you to strengthen you and keep you from harm (1 Chron. 4:10). The Lord God is a sun and shield; He bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold (Ps. 84:11).
He has written this day of your life in His book. Be blessed as His favor rests on His appointed work through your hands (Ps. 90:17). See the great thing He is about to do (1 Sam. 12:6). His Word says, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases” (Pro. 21:1). Be blessed as God breaks through hindrances and uses everything to fulfill His
purposes. He rejoices today in doing you good (Jer. 32:41).
Even if circumstances make it hard to believe, trust in His unfailing love. He is not slow in keeping His promise. He surrounds you with the shield of His presence (Ps. 5:12). He promises that weeping may endure for a night, and His anger is only for a moment. Joy comes in the morning, and His favor lasts for your lifetime (Ps. 30:5). He keeps you today in His love and faithfulness (Pro. 3:3-4). He is inviting you to live in the assurance of your Father’s blessing and favor. Be blessed to trust His goodness toward you today.’
