Devotional:

One thing that sometimes I know I don’t do as much as I should is look to God’s Word first when faced with the day to day difficult circumstance…or difficult people in my life.  Most of the time, I try to fix things or the situation myself and then end up getting my feelings hurt, or even worse…take things way to personal. Well-recently I did a GOOGLE search on scripture that addresses this issue after being faced with a certain circumstance in my life. Here’s the verse that came up as I searched.

PROVERBS 16:7  When a person’s ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.

Hmm…ok so I chewed on that for a couple days. Prayed for the circumstance at hand and tried my best  to turn it over to God.

3 days later, my email inbox gets the Devotional below…and look at the verse it ends with! 🙂 :

Expect Favor

PSALM 5:12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

If Jesus is your Lord, then He is also your righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30, Romans 5:17). So, you are righteous in Christ and qualify for this blessing.

Favor is the blessing of God causing people to like you and treat you well.

Why expect favor?

Because God is your Father. He loves you. And He responds to faith. When you walk in faith you expect blessings.

PROVERBS 16:7 NIV 7 When a man’s ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.

In the days that followed this circumstance…and after I completely surrendered the situation at hand over, these two verses literally came to LIFE in my life. God began showing His favor to me through not only the circumstances I was facing, but also through certain individuals I had come in contact with. He never ceases to amaze me.

All that to say…remember that when you feel like the darts are being thrown at you or the daily grind has you feeling maybe a little hopeless in the circumstances around you, KNOW that God is surrounding you with His Favor…”as with a shield” says the verse. And that Ladies..is some Powerful gear to be wearing.
