The ‪Priestly‬ ‎Blessing‬

Numbers 6:22 to 27. 22 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 23 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:24 “The Lord bless you and keep you;25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,And be gracious to you;26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,And give you peace.”’
27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”

Priestly BlessingDear Friends, The Bible declares that in ‪‎Christ Jesus we all are royal priests(Rev.5:10) so we are all entitled for a priestly blessing which makes God as our inheritance. Think about this fact – He is yours exclusively. These verses say that as you hold on to Him, He will give you safety, peace & favour. He will give you grace and as you hold on to His name He will bless you beyond measure. Blessing is not just having stuff. Whats the use of having an expensive bed and all those aminities one can think of but not being able to sleep or being dependent on some pills to sleep.  People can have a private Jet but not be blessed. Bible is full of such examples where men and women of God have found their riches nothing when compared to God. On the contrary the mindset of people today is completely the opposite – as we notice its easy for people to miss church on sunday than missing a business meeting. The mindset of certain Christians is that they feel they are self sufficient and this is the reason that they are holding onto the blessing more tightly than their source of blessing i,e. God. This is the reason why a lot of men and women of God are doing things in the flesh and are fading away. But the true blessing is peace, health, hope, love and above all assurance that He is yours and when He is yours then everything that is His belongs to you. Verse 27 in the above mentioned scripture is the key to our blessing, i,e when we put His name upon us or we understand our position as ambassadors of God, as sons and daughters of God and we have His word in us and we focus on serving Him then He will pour out His countless blessings on us. Have a blessed day. Pr.Bakshi
