the priestly blessing
“And the Lord saidto Moses Say to Aaron and his sons, this is the way you shall bless the Israelites.
Say to them…
The Lord bless you, and watch, guard and keep you;
The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you.
The Lord lift up His (approving) peace (tranquility of heart and life continually).
And they shall put My name upon the Israelites and I will bless them.”
Numbers 6:22-27 Amplified
I was reminded of this scripture while watching Bill Winston teach at the Southwest Believers Convention in Fort Worth. While many churches use this scripture as an end to their service; it is actually a blessing and a beginning. God shows us how to bless by “saying”. We are to agree with God’s Words of blessing and provision and receive them as our truth!
Again we see, that we are to speak the Word of God, we are to agree with God. We are to speak blessings and not curses, speak life and not death into the atmosphere!
Read this scripture again and see the depth of the meaning of God’s blessing. The scriptures also tell us that “Holy Spirit leads and guides us into all truth.” So, when we obey the Word of God, it becomes our pathway for life! Speaking God’s truths brings His blessings and fullness into our lives.
Choose life, the life of the Word and let it become your life and truth!!
Blessings & Miracles on your day!
