Surrounded With Favor


For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord, You surround him with favor as with a shield. -Psalm 5:12 NASB


For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord, You surround him with favor as with a shield. -Psalm 5:12 NASB

The shield, as described in the verse for today, was as tall as a door and protected the whole body. God’s favor, His delight and pleasure in and with us, covers the whole body. And not just the body, but our whole lives, for it says that we are surrounded with favor.

You may not feel surrounded by God’s blessings or favor today. You may be sick, out of work, missing loved ones, or struggling in a relationship. Regardless of how you feel, these blessings are available to you, “the Lord blesses the righteous man”.

You are the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. When you accept by faith that Christ died and rose again, then Christ dwells in you. When God the Father looks at you, He no longer sees your past, your present, or your future mistakes.

You are forgiven! With Christ in you, God only sees Jesus and His righteousness upon you. Therefore, when you walk by faith, in the redemptive power of Christ, you are surrounded by favor!

Prayer Focus

  • Pray that you would grow in your relationship with Christ.
  • Pray, individually, that your love for God would increase.
