Blessing and Favor

Psalm 5:12

For You, LORD, bless the righteous one. You surround him with favor like a shield.

Jesus Christ is the righteous one, and we are given His righteousness in exchange for our sin when we surrender our lives to Him. If we are in Christ, we are protected as the righteous in Christ. As long as we are in Christ, we can count on God’s blessing and His favor to protect us.

God’s favor acts as a shield of protection around us. While the Devil may attack and throw flaming darts of temptation and trouble our way, his weapons are no match for God’s favor. In fact, God often counters the enemy’s attack by blessing us. He can put us in just the right place at just the right time to avoid the enemy’s destruction or to create good from the evil intended for us. Romans 8:28 assures us that all things work together for the good of those who love God, so every attack from the enemy only serves to move us into a greater blessing when surrendered to God’s sovereignty.

If you sense the enemy trying to attack you today, understand you have a shield of favor around you. Anything the Devil throws at you can be turned to good in God’s hand. Focus on your favor – not your frustration. Fix your eyes on Jesus and move forward. Blessing and favor are yours!

Have a blessed day!
