For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as

with a shield. (Psalms 5:12)

The Lord’s favor surrounds you if you have accepted Jesus as your righteousness and are

living for Him. In short, it means you are shielded with favor. And when the Lord’s favor is

on you, he doesn’t withhold any good thing from you.

And if this favor lasts for a lifetime and it really does if you are living close to the Lord,

what a blessed experience that would be. Not that you won’t experience any problems in

your earthly life, but His presence will let you overcome whatever difficulties come your

way.

Moses prayed to God for his favor:

May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us -

yes, establish the work of our hands. (Psalm 90:17)

David prayed to the Lord for his favor:

But I pray to you, O LORD, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer

me with your sure salvation. (Psalm 69:13)

The Bible says,

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing

does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. (Psalm 84:11)

He will grant you the peace that the world cannot give; a peace that passes all

understanding. As the psalmist says, “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor

lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

(Psalm 30:5)”
