Numbers 6:22-26 The LORD said to Moses, “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: “‘“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’
The language from the Word is so beautiful. No one really talks this way anymore. We are working so hard to keep up in such a fast-paced world that we forget what living among each other is like. When we stop long enough to really look at the lives around us, we are sure to see many in need of blessing. We become the hands and feet of Jesus when we meet needs. We are the fulfillment of the Israelite priesthood when we extend blessings. This small blessing packs a powerful punch. Find someone today, look them in the eye, and speak this blessing over them…the Holy Spirit will do the rest!
Father of all blessings, Give me the courage to begin extending YOUR much needed blessings on others. Nudge me to know who needs it and prepare their hearts to receive it. I want to be Your instrument of blessing to others. Amen
