“The LORD bless you and keep you.” (Numbers 6:24)
Dear friend, I believe you are smiling as you live your life according to God’s word. Even in this New Year, God has given an apt verse, a beautiful promise which is from Numbers 6:24, “The LORD bless you and keep you.” What a great promise isn’t it! God’s blessing is not ordinary or small. It is so mighty. The priests would call the blessing of the Lord on His people and indeed a mighty blessing would come upon them.
So today I come not as an ordinary Sam but I come as God’s servant and I pronounce this promise on you. May God bless you and keep you. In the movie called Lion King there is a song called Hakuna Matata which means no worries for the rest of the days. Indeed when you receive God’s blessing you too would have no worries for the rest of your days. This is a powerful blessing God is giving you right now.
That’s why a man called Jacob in the Bible stole such a blessing from his father. He stole it away from his elder brother Esau because he knew his father’s blessing would be powerful and from that point his life started to flourish. God increased him tremendously. Yes, from today such a blessing is coming upon your life. It is going to increase you in God’s ways and being in God’s ways will protect you and keep you because this blessing is to keep you in God’s ways.
Thank You for this promise. I know my life would increase in leaps and bounds when You bless me. Lord, thank You for Your blessing is mighty. Thank You for choosing to bless me. May Your strength be made perfect in my weakness and keep me walking in Your way.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
