It is the Lord’s blessing that makes all the difference in the world!

The Lord's hands blessingAaron, the High Priest in Israel was commanded to bless God’s people with these words…

“The Lord bless you and keep you! The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you! The Lord lift up His countenance upon you [i.e. look upon you with favor] and give you peace!” (Numbers 6:24-26)

A wonderful blessing! You may have heard a pastor in church utter this blessing over the congregation at the close of a service as a “benediction.” But this morning during my time of “coffee with the Lord” it occurred to me that Aaron in the Old Testament, and a pastor in a church service are only agents for the Lord… Ultimately I want God to be the one who lays His mighty, loving hands upon my head and speaks these words and activates the blessing over my life! Isn’t that what you want? His blessing, not a man’s, is what makes all the difference in the world!
