The Blessings of the Father that manifested through Jesus

Numbers 6: 24-26
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.

Let’s list out the 5 blessings from our context and meditate the love of God towards us:

  1. Blessings:
    The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion (Ps 134:3)
    He became poor on the Cross to make us rich in His blessings. Through His poverty we become rich (2Cor 8:9)
  2. Protection:
    Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep (Ps121:4)
    I am with you always (Mat 28:20)
  3. Make His face shine on you: Father:
    Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined (Ps50:2)
    If the Father had not turned His back on His Son at the cross, He would have to turn His back on you today when you call out to Him in your hour of need. But because Jesus has taken your place, today, you take His place, and you have God’s face shining you always!
  4. Graciousness:
    Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful (Ps116:5)
    The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus. Out of His fulness we all have received abundance of grace. (Jn 1:16,17)
  5. Peace
    The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.(Ex 14:14)
    Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (Jn14:27)

Stay Blessed 😊
