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.
When I’m to blame, let me see, so that I may be corrected, repent, and atone. When I’m blameless, please make things right. I only want to honor You. I pray for Your grace and mercy Father. Amen.
God is the Light and the Truth. Nothing can remain in darkness, and no lie can withstand the test of time. God is our protector.
We must not walk around arrogantly thinking that just because we call ourselves Christians, or children of God, that we are exempt from being held to high standards, and that somehow in our blame we can receive a pass because we’re “believers”. We must be blameless in our walk for favor to be received.
There is too much hypocrisy in the world. When will we stand, walk, and not be concerned with the pack behind us—but focused on the Light ahead?
