In God 's mercy and Grace He covers our every moment of life when we receive HIS righteousness. Is there anything greater than his favour? How much confidence we gain knowing this! It spurrs us on toward greater devotion, love and ever increasing faith

Holy verse from a holy God

It pays to serve God sincerely. To walk upright before Him and to call on the name of His beloved Son Jesus every day of our lives. God is our present help. He gives joy, peace and spiritual prosperity to those who love Him and keep His commandments. In a world filled with evil and darkness, we need God 's protection to keep us from all the hurt, harm and danger. And remember, God 's angels encamp around them that fear Him. It pays to pray and seek Jesus every day of our lives.

To have the favor of Jehovah God in your life, and His shield you must keep the commands. Great peace have they that love His law and nothing shall offend them. The favor of the Lord will shield me and His righteousness shall guide my steps.

In the verse above, there are three things to note; the righteous, favour and shield.
For God to favour and shield you, there's a call for righteousness....you must be holy, for I am holy.
