ĎĒ The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD
make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.Ēí
Numbers 6:24-26 (NIV)

I remember back in high school the Choral Club ended each performance with a musical arrangement of this passage of scripture. I was not a member of this group or any chorus but I enjoyed hearing those groups perform. I had forgotten how special the passage was.

This passage, a part of my devotions one recent morning, touched me as I read it. I felt led to call four of my church sisters and one of my church brothers and share the message. One prepares for Vacation Bible School to be held this upcoming week. The second lady had confided in me her feelings about a situation that keeps letting us know of its presence. One of my friends grieves her sisterís passing into heaven.

Several of us believe we stand at the brink of something very good for our building of Godís kingdom.

God looks down on His people and gives approval to those who work for Him. He is kind to those who read His Word and obey Him. This blessing comes in five parts, which God would:
1.) Favor and protect.
2.) be pleased with.
3.) be merciful and compassionate.
4.) give His approval.
5.) give peace. (1)

God brought joy to at least six people through this passage on a summerís Saturday in central Indiana. I wonder how many other people God blessed with these words that morning.

In our 21th Century world, Godís children seek His favor and desire His protection. They seek His peace. When they interact with others, they strive to show mercy and compassion.
Dear Lord God: Thank You for Your love for Your children. Please show us how to spread Your blessing to those who hurt, who search for You, who want to know You better. I ask this be done out of Your grace for Your children. We will give You the glory. In the name of Jesus, I pray. AMEN
