HAS THE LORD BLESSED YOU?

Today in Numbers chapter 6 verses 22-27 we will read the well known “Aaronic Blessing”.

""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." Numbers 6:24-26 NIV

“Can you imagine this ancient blessing that has been prayed innumerable times in history being prayed over you today? Take a few moments to really meditate upon the 3 sections of the blessing. Do you notice that each section begins with God’s name? Do you believe that God can indeed bless you and keep you (favor & protect you)? That he can indeed make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you (be pleased & be merciful and compassionate to you)? And do you believe that God can indeed turn his face toward you and give you peace (give approval & peace to you)? It is also of note that this blessing “put God’s name on the Israelites and they were blessed.” Do you believe that God’s name is upon you today?”

Prayer without doubt: Pray that God will bless you and keep you. Pray that Jesus will give you peace. Pray Numbers 6:24-46 for your family and neighbors today.

JOY WILL COME IN THE MORNING!!!!

Psalm 30:5–weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

As painful as the test and trials of life may seem at times, our faith must be tested. Anyone can have faith when we are in our mountain top experiences, but the true test of faith is when we are in our midnight hour. A new morning brings another opportunity to get it right with God!! A new morning!!!  Lamentations 3:22-23 declares - It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Throughout the Bible we see where the faith of God’s people were tested in their midnight experiences. We also see their “JOY” on the morning after. I think we all need a constant reminder of who our God is and what He is well able to do in times of hurt, pain and despair. We must know without a doubt that when our days of suffering and pains seem endless, God is there. God is Faithful and He will fulfill His promises.

2 Timothy 3:12 declares – Yea and all that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. In other words, we will go through tests and trials in life.

Be encouraged, keep the faith, keep believing, keep trusting, keep praying, keep witnessing, even in the midst of suffering and watch God!!! He will never fail you!!! JOY WILL COME IN THE MORNING!!!!
