God's Blessing and Promise to You
"‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’" Numbers 6:24-26 (NLT)
This scripture is much more than just the foundation of the song written by Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes. This is the benediction spoken by God for the priests to give at the end of each of their services. “The Lord” is repeated three times to represent the Godhead (three in one) in respect to the office that each of them hold. May the Father bless you and protect you. May the son be gracious to you and may the Holy Spirit give you His peace. This was not just a blessing from the priest or the pastor over the congregation, but this was a promise from God given to His people through the lips of man.
You are blessed to be a blessing
Today, wherever you are, “May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.” Whether it is in your workplace, home, or school, the Lord is protecting you. The Lord is gracious to you. The Lord’s favor and peace is upon you. As a CITYCHANGER this is not something that you have earned, but it is something that God has freely given to you. Take some time today to sit with God and thank Him for this blessing. Receive this blessing into your spirit. Pray that all of us CITYCHANGERS would receive revelation of this blessing that is upon our lives and that we would walk with strength and authority in every sphere of influence.
Father, we thank you for your blessing. We receive this into our spirits’ understanding that there is nothing that we could have done to be worthy of it. We thank you that you died on the cross for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserved. We thank you that you rose from the grave, giving us access to your presence and the Holy Spirit. We receive this blessing knowing that there are others whom you also want adopted into this family, and we will do everything within our ability to make that a reality. We pray over the rest of the CITYCHANGERS. May this blessing rest upon them and rejuvenate their souls. We pray that their cup would overflow. Amen.
