You’re One of God’s Favorites! Gloria Copeland 15 March For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

What would life be like if you were one of God’s favorite people? Stop and think about that for a moment. How would it be to have His supernatural favor wrapped around you like a shield all the time, covering you from head to toe? It would relieve all your anxieties. It would calm all your fears. In short, it would save your life. I know it would because the Bible says so. Ephesians 2:8 puts it this way: “By grace are ye saved through faith.” Now, grace is a word many people use and don’t understand. But what it means is “favor.” Unconditional favor. God’s favor saves you. If you’ll look up the word save in Greek, you’ll find it doesn’t just refer to going to heaven when you die, though that’s included in its meaning. To be saved actually means “to be delivered, preserved, healed and made sound and whole.” If you are a believer, you know that God’s grace at work in your life enabled you to be born again. But did you know that grace did not stop working the moment you made Jesus the Lord of your life? That was just the beginning! God will minister grace to you every day if you’ll let Him. Psalm 5:12 ensures that. If you’re born again, Psalm 5:12 is talking about you. You’ve been made righteous by Jesus’ blood so God’s favor is available to you constantly. Whatever you need today to be delivered, preserved, healed, made whole, sound and complete…call upon God’s favor by faith. Say, “Surely, O Lord, You bless the righteous! You surround me with Your favor as with a shield! Thank You for Your continual supernatural favor. I am favored by God!” Numbers 34-35; John 17 God surrounds me with favor as with a shield. I am one of God’s favorites! Psalm 5:12
