I love the awesome blessing that Arron was instructed to pray over the people: 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 you and give you peace.
The Lord’s blessing is to confer goodness. It speaks of life and health and abundance. It’s a touch of His sweetness to what ever we need. If the Lord keeps us, we are in safe hands. It’s protection and confidence that He will always be there for us.
The Lord shining His face on us and lifting up His countenance, is to see the face of God in all His holiness and magnificence. His look is full of every aspect of who He is–love, joy, peace, grace, mercy, goodness, kindness, patience.
When God blesses us with who He is, we are changed. A touch from holy heaven will drive away all the effects of the enemy and fill us with Himself. We are told to bless the Lord. When we do, we actually give back to Him what He has given us.
This is a blessing to receive with open arms. This blessing will change your life.
