The Lord Bless You and Keep You...

"The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon, and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26

As we read through these verses, we can see the desire of God's heart to be a good and faithful Father to His children.

The name of the Lord is repeated 3 times along with attachments as to what He's going to specifically do for His children...

"The Lord bless and keep you"

God loves His children so much that He invokes divine favor upon them. This is not a one time blessing, but it is a continual overflow of blessings throughout our lifetime. God is our protector and defense. He is our strong tower where we run in and are safe {Proverbs 18:10}. God promises to not only protect us, but He also takes care of us.

"The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you"

As God watches over us, His face shines upon us as a sign of His acceptance. The atoning sacrificial sin offering of Jesus Christ on our behalf, has given us access to be recipients of His unmerited grace in our lives.

"The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace"

The Lord's countenance is the expression on His face when He sees us. As He looks down at us, He only sees His righteousness which makes Him smile. It should also make us smile knowing that we are no longer under the curse, but are now under grace, which brings us peace. A peace that surpasses all understanding {Philippians 4:7}

Be encouraged.
