SylviaPsalm 5:12 "For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield." And Job 10:12 "You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit."

Beloved one, know the assurance 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 (Ps. 84:11). 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 today with his compassion and his full blessing as you seek him (Isa 30:18). He has written this day of your life in his book. He knew you before you were born (Ps 139:16). You are constantly on his mind (Ps 139:17-18).
Be blessed to know that your Father's providence goes before you to provide for your every need. He is with you to strengthen you and keep you from harm (1 Chron 4:10). Be blessed as his favor rests on his appointed work through your hands (Ps 90:17), because his purposes and power for you are great.

Dear one, you need favor with your authorities whom God has placed over you and with those in decision-making positions (Ezra 7:27; Neh 1:11). 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 all hindrances and uses all concerned with you to fulfill his will on your behalf.
Let your Abba protect your emotions, as he surrounds you with the shield of his presence (Ps 5:12). 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 (Ps 30:5). He keeps you today in the favor of his love and faithfulness (Pro 3:3-4). He withholds no good thing from you as you live before him blamelessly (Ps 84:11).

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