Psalm 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may endure for a night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. (Amplified Bible)
This makes me think how thankful and humbled we should be that ‘God’s love for us outweighs His wrath (His anger) towards us. We each are blessed in spite of us. This says it all- For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime. Looking at that word ‘favor’; it means approval, support; or a liking for someone or something. An act of kindness above what is due or usual. Biblical- finding favor means gaining approval or special benefits or blessings. Know that there is a close association between favor, grace, and mercy; BUT, they are not the same. Without His grace there is no favor. Without His mercy, there is no favor. So glad that because of His favor trouble doesn’t last always; joy comes in the morning. Put your all in His hands, He will see you through.
V.L.S.-“Through all of my faults, my failures, and my imperfections; God will cover me afresh.”
