There are several Scriptures on blessings and favor that talks about God’s favor and blessings.

However, one benefit stands out above the rest: salvation via Jesus Christ. It is the most valuable gift we can get in this life, for without it, we shall spend eternity in hell, estranged from God.

The following Bible verse will help us to understand what God says about favor and blessing in our lives.

 

Bible verses for God’s favor and blessings

Psalm 84:11

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.

~Psalm 84:11 

This verse serves as a reminder that the Lord God is our sun and shield, providing and caring for us.

He rewards those who walk with Him with favor and distinction.

Sinners are seen to be in the dark, but when God has been accepted, he will be a Sun to them, enlightening and enlivening us, guiding and directing us.

When we’re in danger, God will act as a shield for us, protecting us from the hot darts flying about us.

He has promised grace and glory to those who pursue them in his conventional manner.

 

Scriptures on blessings and favor

Psalms 5:12

For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

~Psalms 5:12

This Bible portion makes us understand that God’s favor envelops the righteous like a protecting SHIELD or a defensive covering.

God is willing to compass, defend, and protect His own.

When God’s favor is upon you, you will be secure and protected against all oppositions and anti-favor activities by the adversaries.

This favor not only protects but also attracts men’s attention.

 

Psalm 90:17

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands

~Psalm 90:17

In this bible Scripture, We pray that God will show us kindness, bless our efforts, and help us prosper in our endeavors.

The Lord, our God’s favor, is upon us. This indicates that the Lord is with us and will assist us in achieving our objectives.

 

Isaiah 49:8

Thus says the Lord: “In a time of favor I have answered you; in a day of salvation I have helped you; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, to establish the land, to apportion the desolate heritages.

~Isaiah 49:8

God is always there to help his children and favor them at all times, so as Children of God, we should believe that our God is always there to favor his children.

We have been promised that in time of favor, He will answer us.

This means that whatever we face difficulties, we should not be moved because God’s favor will be our portion.

 

Proverbs 3:4

So you will find favor and good repute
In the sight of God and man.

~Proverbs 3:4

God’s favor goes to those who he loves. When you are in grace, the economic position of your surroundings has no bearing on you.

Loving God will bring favor and prosperity in God’s eyes and before man.

This stems from the concept that obeying God’s plan yields better outcomes and favor than defying Him.

 

What is the biblical meaning of favor?

Psalm 90:17

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!

~ Psalm 90:17

Favor comes from a place of love, grace, and kindness. Grace or favor are possible translations.

God favors His people, which indicates He loves them, according to the Bible.

When someone favors us, it shows they care about us and want to do good things for us.

Moses beseeches the Lord in this Bible verse to grant him, and the Israelites favor. He also prays for the Lord to bless whatever they do.

A gift is the biblical meaning of favor. When God bestows our favor, He bestows something priceless and important. Therefore, he is putting His utmost effort into our lives.

 

Is blessings and favor the same?

Psalm 1:1

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

Psalm 1:1(KJV)

The words blessing and favor are similar in meaning. However, although both terms have good intentions, they differ in a sense.

The book of Psalms begins with a lovely truth: the Lord knows the upright’ path, but the wicked’s way will perish.

The practice of ungodliness and compromise, which yields the fruit of grief and devastation and ends in a man’s ruin and death, stands in stark contrast to a godly life, which results in blessings from above, contentment within, and hope for the future.

A blessing is anything that provides someone or something good fortune. Receiving an inheritance, for example, might be viewed as a blessing since it permits you to live comfortably for the rest of your life.

A blessing is a gift from God that provides us with life and hope. When we live according to God’s will, we are blessed.

 

Romans 5:15

But the gracious gift is not like the offense. For if by the offense of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many.

~ Romans 5:15

The favor, which can also be seen as a gracious gift, is comparable to a blessing in connotation, although it is not quite as powerful.

Someone who has done you a favor has done something nice for you without expecting anything in return, such as assisting you with a move or doing your laundry when you are unwell.

This is also a blessing since it helps people feel good about themselves and inspires them to do pleasant things for others.

Blessing and favor have a lot in common. First, they both imply that God is assisting someone or something.

Because they express what God does for us, blessing and favor have similar meanings. There is, however, a slight distinction between them:

 

What are the several blessings of God?

 

Psalm 33:12

 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.

~Psalm 33:12

Those who have God as their King and Leader and obey and follow Him are blessed. This verse contains enormous hope for a nation that worships God as its God (Proverbs 14:34).

David was overjoyed that Israel’s God was the only real God. He calls Israel “fortunate,” which means “spiritually successful” or “content.”

 

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

~Matthew 5:8

God wants us to have a pure heart because He knows how much we’ll love Him when we finally meet Him.

He wants us to have clean hearts because He understands that focusing on Him rather than our issues, needs, goals, or aspirations will help us focus on Him.

He desires for us to be pure because only the pure can see His excellent presence without being devoured by it.

Another “blessed are” has been added to Jesus’ increasing list of those who should rejoice in how God sees them.

This litany is now known as the Beatitudes. The “pure in heart” are blessed. Jesus continues since they shall see God. This does not guarantee they will be happy, but it ensures they will not feel hopeless.

 

Matthew 5:11

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

~Matthew 5:11

Jesus goes into great detail on what persecution might entail and what might trigger it.

Jesus Christ is at the center of Christian peers does not always mean being harassed or maltreated, especially in response to our misbehavior, as seen in 1 Peter 4:15.

One sign of being blessed according to Jesus is the willingness to endure unjust punishment due to sincerely following Him.

 

Matthew 5:4

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

~Matthew 5:4

The word of God brings comfort to those who are grieving. So, likewise, the crucifixion of Christ is a source of comfort for individuals genuinely troubled by others’ transgressions.

The word of God brings comfort to those who are grieving. So, likewise, the crucifixion of Christ is a source of comfort for individuals genuinely troubled by others’ transgressions.

This verse is part of the Beatitudes. These are a set of statements taught by Jesus at the start of the Sermon on the Mount.

Each one begins with blessed are. In this context, blessing refers to a declaration of what is good and why. It does not necessarily imply that the blessed person will be content.

 

Matthew 5:7

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

~Matthew 5:7

Jesus makes us understand that Blessed are they that are merciful, for they shall obtain mercy also. Therefore, in dealing with people, we must show them mercy, be compassionate, and love them.

By doing these, the world will know that we are the children of God. And when we fall short of God’s favor, God will show us mercy as we offer to others.

Jesus is still identifying those who are truly blessed in this Bible portion. The Beatitudes is the name given to this list.

In every situation, the blessings of they that are merciful come from God, who is the ultimate source of all benefits. God’s answer to their humble dispositions determines their status as “blessed.”
