“May The Lord Bless You And Keep You..”

The Bible is filled with many beautiful passages of scripture.  One of my favorites is this text from Numbers 6:24-26.  It reads;

“May the Lord bless you
    and protect you.
May the Lord smile on you
    and be gracious to you.
May the Lord show you his favor
    and give you his peace.”

Those verses are known was the blessing of Aaron.  The Lord told Moses to pronounce that blessing upon the people of Israel.

Look at the blessing; It asks for God’s blessings… “may the Lord bless you…”

It asks for God’s protection… “…and protect you..”

It asks for God’s favor… “..may the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you and  may the Lord show you his favor…”

It asks for God’s peace… “… give you his peace.”

Those are four things everyone of us want… the blessing of God… the protection of God… the favor of God… the peace of God…  Today, God wants each one of us to experience those in our lives… But… to receive those.. we have to be living in God’s will.  God isn’t  going to give us His favor if we are living an ungodly life.

Today, determine to live for God and experience the favor, blessing, protection and peace of God.
