Favor, approval, and protection are synonyms for the word bless. These words are words of encouragement; words that fill us up to help us fulfill the plans God has for us. Each night my family and I speak these Scriptures together as a reminder of how much God loves and encourages us. This also reminds us of the word “bless” and how to not take blessings for granted. Favor, approval, and protection are something we should be grateful for whether from God or from other people.
