The Good Hand of the Lord

Beth Jones

"For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield." 
Psalm 5:12, NKJV

Just when you think God couldn’t be any more generous, kind or good – in Psalm 5:12, we discover a major benefit for the righteous: favor! God blesses the righteous with favor. He surrounds us with favor as with a shield. We are surrounded with the favor of God front to back, side-to-side and top to bottom!

To be favored by God is to be given an advantage, to have an edge, to be given preferential treatment. God’s favor opens doors, brings unexpected blessings, out-of-the-blue ‘upgrades,’ and goodwill with man and God into our lives.

We see example after example of the favor of God at work in the lives of God’s people throughout the Bible. Think about Joseph, and how God’s favor promoted him. Think about Nehemiah, and how the favor of God opened doors and gave him supernatural provision. Think about Esther, and how the favor of God caused her to become the King’s favorite. Think about Ezra, and how God raised him up to teach God’s people through favor. 

In Nehemiah and Ezra, we see the phrase “the good hand of the Lord” mentioned several times. This is a reference to God’s favor and success. When the “good hand of the Lord” is upon us for favor – all kinds of supernatural things happen.

You are the righteous, and God has promised to surround you with favor. The good hand of the Lord is upon you for good. We know all of God’s promises are yes and amen, so believe and receive it today!

Say It: “Father, I thank You that You surround me with favor as with a shield. I am righteous because of Jesus and Your good hand is upon me for good things! Today, I receive Your favor, and I thank You that I walk in wisdom and I have favor with God and man. I thank You for open doors, advantages, preferential treatment, the supernatural edge and success – all because of Jesus and Your goodness! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
