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.
Part of one commentary on this verse says, “God does not promise to give us everything we think is good, but he will not withhold what is permanently good.” Our idea of what favor, honor and good means can be totally different than what God sees as honoring us and giving us good things. He is concerned with bringing us to a place where we have a Christ like life, not necessarily our comfort and exaltation.
My prayer for the prodigal today is that they could understand how the concept of obedience and blessing works in their lives. That they would have “Kingdom” understanding in all they do.
