Truly Blessed!
Description

NUMBERS 6:22-27 – TRULY BLESSED

I pronounce this blessing (Numbers 6:22-26) at the end of almost every service

To bless in the OT means "to endue with power for success, prosperity, fecundity, longevity, etc."
Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament.

Blessing is generally from the Greater to the lesser. When we bless God, we are praising Him because He is the blesser and the source of our blessings.

Numbers 6:22, 27 - The priest was to use this blessing on the people of God but notice it is God who ultimately truly blesses His people

This blessing is for God’s people. Does this apply to us today? Yes, it does apply if you are one of God’s children. Isaiah 59:1-2, Isaiah 53:3-6, John 1:12-13, Romans 8:14-17

If you are a child of God, this applies to you! This tells you what your true blessings are. Sometimes we are not experiencing the blessing although available, because we are not walking in obedience. Let’s examine our true blessings. 

There seem to be allusions to the Trinity with the 3-fold use of the “The Lord”

 

The Lord Blesses – Vs. 24 - The LORD bless thee,

Proverbs 10:22, James 1:17, Psalm 34:7-10, 18-20, 22

Ephesians 1:3

THE LORD WANTS TO TRULY BLESS YOU! LET HIM!

 

The Lord KeepsVs. 24 - …and keep thee:

Psalm 121 

THE LORD WANTS TO TRULY KEEP YOU! LET HIM!

 

The Lord Approves – Vs. 25 - The LORD make his face shine upon thee

Ephesians 1:4-6, Isaiah 49:14-15,

I should always want my Father’s approval above all others.

Proverbs 29:25, Isaiah 51:7

THE LORD WANTS TO TRULY SHOW HIS APPROVAL OF YOU! LET HIM!

 

The Lord FavorsVs. 25 - …and be gracious unto thee:

Ephesians 2:8-10, 2 Peter 1:2, 3:18

THE LORD WANTS TO TRULY SHOW HIS GRACE! LET HIM!

 

The Lord Communicates – Vs. 26 - The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee,

John 14:23 – “He pays attention.” 1 Peter 5:7, John 15:4-7

THE LORD WANTS TO TRULY COMMUNICATE WITH YOU! LET HIM!

 

The Lord Calms – Vs. 26 - …and give thee peace.

Isaiah 26:3-4, John 14:27, John 16:33

THE LORD WANTS TO TRULY CALM YOU, LET HIM!
