Day One: May the Lord cause you to flourish!

“God is our shield” comes from one of the earliest revelations of who God says he is to his believers, and therefore foundational to our faith. God is our shield against things that can threaten our well-being. To place our trust in Him is to place ourselves solely under His protection when our well-being is at risk.

Take this moment to declare the truth of God’s word over your life, over your loved ones. As you proclaim that the Lord is your help and shield, may your trust in the Lord deepen.

“All you Israelites, trust in the Lord—

he is their help and shield.

House of Aaron, trust in the Lord—

      he is their help and shield.

You who fear him, trust in the Lord—

      he is their help and shield.

The Lord remembers us and will bless us…

      he will bless those who fear the Lord—

May the Lord cause you to flourish…

May you be blessed by the Lord,

      the Maker of heaven and earth.

It is not the dead who praise the Lord,

      those who go down to the place of silence;

it is we who extol the Lord,

      both now and forevermore.

Praise the Lord.” (Psalm 115.9-18)

“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children” (Rm 8.16). This is flourishing! Let’s pray: Father, thank you for your protection, thank you for walking with us. Lord, think of us, and bless us today…

Let’s sing “Full Revelation” together:
