This is Derek Prince with a word for you from the Word.

“For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.” (Psalm 5:12 NIV)

That’s one thing very sure – God blesses the righteous. A lot of things today that we used to count on, we’ve found no longer absolutely sure. Many places that we’ve looked for security and certainty have failed us and let us down. Political solutions and financial solutions seem to be crumbling today. But there is one thing still sure in life, that God blesses the righteous.

We need to spend much more concern about making sure that our lives are right before God, that we qualify for that blessing of the Lord which He reserves for the righteous, which is only for the righteous. And then the psalmist says, “You surround them [the righteous] with your favor as with a shield.” God’s favor is toward the righteous and when we walk in His righteousness His favor is like a shield, like a protection around about us that shields us against the blows of life. It shields us against the pressures. It shields us against forces that are too strong for us. It shields us from harm and danger and evil.

What a blessing to walk in the favor of the Lord, to know His presence, to know His favor around about you as a shield. Remember, there’s one thing sure; God blesses the righteous.
