Encompass means: surround, enclose, encircle.  Let me review some delightful verses with you.  First off is Psalm 63:5.  The Amplified says, “My whole being shall be satisfied…”  With that in mind let’s look at some other verses.

Psalm 34:7 says, “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.”  Deuteronomy 32:10 says that the Lord encircled Israel.  Psalm 91:4 says, “He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.”  Psalm 5:12 says, “For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.”  Psalm 32:10 says, “…he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.”  The Amplified uses the words compassed about with mercy and loving-kindness.  Psalm 139:5 says, “You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me.”  The word hedged means enclosed.

Now let’s take all these verses together.  Say with me: I am encompassed, encircled, enclosed, and surrounded in God’s presence continually.
