For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour with thou compass him as with a shield.
The writer of this psalm is expressing in his morning prayer the blessings received from God's favor, which is viewed as His grace, which encompasses all things. God's favor also includes His kindness, care, love and mercy as this definition is on daily display in God's actions toward His people. The greatest display of God's favor is in His grace of providing salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. God's favor continues through His longsuffering giving the unsaved time to repent and be saved. Upon being saved, God's Spirit the Holy Spirit lives in every believer. He is our guide, teacher, protector and bring to our remembrance God's truths.
Believers are blessed by God's grace in meeting all our needs according to His riches and glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). Whatever God promises He is faithful to keep them. That said God's grace is sufficient in that during our weakest hour is when God's strength is on display (2 Corinthians 12:9). His mercy endures forever (Psalm 106:1). This is comforting to know because we as believers have a God who is trustworthy, unchangeable and is always available to answer our prayers. What a blessing it is that all believers can call on God at the same time and never get a busy signal?
Thank God for His favor.
