I love these verses…
11. 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. 12. LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.
So much of God’s awesome character expressed in just 2 sentences; power, protection, grace, promises, majesty, kindness, mercy, love, giver. These verses are permanently written on a whiteboard in my office, and every day I read them in awe of His deity.
But the last verse is up to us. All we need to do is trust Him. All of that from God, just by trusting Him? Yes!!! Why? Because He is a good God, and He is the ultimate promise keeper!
My bible version uses the word “happy” instead of “blessed” in verse 12. I love that! “Happy is the one who trust in You.” Blessed and happy…happiness is definitely a blessing. And hard to find sometimes; but happiness is not something we find, it’s something that is given from God.
My challenge for you today is, be blessed! Trust in the Lord with everything you face today. Give Him your burdens, and praise and thank Him for your opportunities and your freedoms. Nothing will give you an everlasting joy and happiness like God has given us through His Son, Jesus Christ!
See His character throughout and in your day, today! He is so good!
