SylviaHear God's Word for you in Psalm 5:12. "For surely, O Lord, you bless the
righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield." And in Job 10:12. "You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence you watched over my spirit."

Be assured of your Father's blessing, His presence, His favor, and His surrounding grace. Who you are and everything you have is the result of His favor. He is your sun and shield, and His honor validates you (Psa 84:11). Your Abba wants to take you 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 and His full blessing as you seek Him (Isa 30:18). He knew you before you were born. He has written this day of your life in His book (Ps 139:16). You are constantly on His mind (Psa 139:17-18).

Your Father goes before you to provide for your every need. He is with you to strengthen you and keep you from harm (1 Chr 4:10). Be blessed as His favor rests on His appointed work through your hands (Psa 90:17), because His purposes and power for you are great. His Word says, "In the Lord's hand the king's heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him" (Pro 21:1). Be blessed as God breaks through all hindrances and fulfills His purposes on your behalf.

He promises that weeping may endure for a night, His anger is but for a moment, but joy comes in the morning, and His favor lasts for your lifetime (Psa 30:5). He keeps you today in the favor of His love and faithfulness (Pro 3:3-4).

Be blessed in the name of the One who rejoices today in doing you good.
Jeremiah 32:41
