The LORD bless thee, and keep thee

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.
Numbers 6:24-26

Just yesterday in my devotions I read that the priestly blessing given in Numbers 6 was commanded to be given to the people- by the Lord.
22And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
 23Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel,
saying unto them...

It went on to say that they offered this prayer with trembling, because they
knew the power of it when God fulfills it.

What a thought! I have always loved that blessing, but even more so now!

May this blessing be yours today, and may you feel the power of it being
fulfilled in your life as you serve Him!

Have a blessed week!
