Day 10

A Blessing
(Numbers 6:24-27)
  • The LORD bless thee, and keep thee.
  • The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
  • The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
A blessing is defined as:
  1. the act or words of a person who blesses
  2. a special favor, mercy, or benefit: the blessings of liberty
  3. a favor or gift bestowed by God, thereby bringing happiness
  4. the invoking of God's favor upon a person
God used Aaron & his sons to pronounce this blessing on the children of Israel, following a lot of laws, geneaologies, and commandments.

It is tucked in there, pretty as you please and if you are not careful, you'll miss it.

God's blessing.

I yearn for God's blessing.
  • for me
  • for my husband
  • for our marriage
  • for our children
  • for our church
  • for our friends
  • for our community
I am reminded of the old hymn.

Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need.
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

Lord please bless us today!
