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. O Lord Almighty,

blessed is the man who trusts in you. (Psalms 84:12)

Is our walk blameless? Well; it better be, for such ones have no good withheld from them

by the Lord. 24 yrs. after God called Abraham, at the age of 99, the Lord appeared to him

again and said, “I am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless. (Genesis 17:1)”

And Abraham must have said to himself, “All these 24 years I have been doing that Lord”

But we read in the very next verse that God wanted to establish a covenant between

Himself and Abraham and so He was asking him to renew his relationship with Him. God

said,

I will confirm my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.

Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, "As for me, this is my covenant with you: You

will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram ; your name will be

Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful; I

will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. I will establish my covenant as

an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the

generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. The

whole land of Canaan, where you are now an alien, I will give as an everlasting

possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God." Then God

said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants

after you for the generations to come. This is my covenant with you and your

descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be

circumcised. You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant

between me and you. (Genesis 17:2-11)

Abraham’s obedience was immediate, for the Bible says,

On that very day Abraham took his son Ishmael and all those born in his household or

bought with his money, every male in his household, and circumcised them, as God told

him. (Genesis 17:23)

Abraham was blameless in God’s presence so God blessed him in everything.

Blameless means “being without guile” and “no good will the Lord withhold” from such a

person. The Lord will be a sun and shield to such a person and bestow favor and honor too.
