Marvelous and Lavish
Speaking God's word is powerful. Believing God's words as we speak them fills His words with His power and pours out into our lives. Speaking God’s blessings into our lives is the best part of our day. Numbers 6: 24-26 NIV "May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord turn His face on you and give you peace." As I began to look up the different versions to grasp the meaning of these few sentences, I was amazed. Here in these few sentences we are shown the Trinity in a special way. This blessing was given up Moses to pass on to Aaron and his sons to bless God's people with each day. We are God’s people and He has provided a blessing, a marvelous and lavish blessing, for every single day of our lives. "May the LORD bless you and keep you."
Here God the Father is giving the Blessing. May the Father bless us; cover us with blessings, supply abundance and all manner of good things. May the Father keep us; protect us and watch over us. Keep us safe. Every day we need this. Every single day of our lives. "May the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you."
Here the Son, Jesus, is giving the Blessing. May Jesus make His light shine upon us. Jesus is the Light of the world. May His light shine on us so that through us His light will shine on others. 'This light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.' May Jesus let His light shine on us and through us. May Jesus be gracious to us. Grace. We all need the Grace offered by Jesus everyday. Every single day of our lives. "May the Lord turn His face on you and give you peace."
Here the Holy Spirit is offering the Blessing. May the Holy Spirit look at us, see each of us and see the truth. See the real us. May the Holy Spirit set our feet on track and shine His light so we can see the way we should go, and give us peace. Peace in our lives that fills us with His confidence in a way that we know that what we are doing is right. Peace in our choices. Peace in our decisions. Peace. Every single day of our lives. When we really look at these few sentences it is completely breathtaking! Blessings from The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. God has provided a marvelous and lavish blessing for His people for every single day of our lives.
