BLESSED BY THE LORD

Take a moment before you read this devotion and reflect upon the blessings that God has given to you. I do not know every reader or am aware of your personal experiences. However, I do know that the Lord blesses us. Oh, sometimes in the midst of our troubles we forget and suffer amnesia. Nevertheless, the Lord blesses us bountifully. The mere fact that you can read this devotion is an indication that the Lord has blessed you to see another day. Someone said, “Count your blessings and name them one by one and you will see what the Lord has done.” We have all been blessed, whether we acknowledge it, is another story. Numbers 6:24 is our reference today.

“May the LORD bless you and protect you.”

In this passage, we see the words of this benediction. This simple praise offering brings blessings to His people. In pronouncing this blessing, the preacher said to shout the Lord’s name so the people might truly have positive peace of the heart and mind through Him who is the Prince of Peace. May the Lord keep close to His people. May the Lord make His face shine upon them with God’s good pleasure. Yahweh’s blessing is extended to His people that they might be blessed bountifully. He would keep them from defeat in battle. He would keep them from having bad harvest and experiencing fruitful crops. We all need God’s blessing. We cannot make it without it. I pray that the Lord will bless every reader continually and that we might all acknowledge His blessings thanks be unto God today for the blessings that come to us day-by-day, night-by-night, moment-by-moment.
