This day’s reading: Psalms 5:12, Psalms 30:5, Psalms 125:2, 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
Thank You for giving me favor in all things at all times.
The Old Testament Hebrew word in this verse for favor defines it as pleasure, delight, goodwill, and acceptance. Isn't that an encouraging thought to picture yourself being surrounded with a shield of God’s pleasure, delight, goodwill and acceptance? The shield the Bible is talking about here is one that completely surrounds you, kind of like being inside of a tank. God loved us so much that He sent his son Jesus to pay the price for our sins so that we can be made right before God. If you have committed your life to Jesus, you can be confident today that you are being surrounded with a shield of favor. God’s favor enables you to walk around in Godly confidence knowing that you are loved and accepted by the Almighty. Because you are now His child, you have an incredible inheritance awaiting you in heaven. Let’s thank God for His favor today.
Prayer - God, thank You for surrounding me with a shield of Your favor. Help me to walk in that confidence today in everything that I do. Thank You that you accept me. Thank You that You love me and surround me with Your favor. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
