Many of you are aware of my practice to send a “Scriptural Birthday Greeting” to my Facebook friends on their birthdays. I have collected a whole list of appropriate greetings from the Bible. Today my Bible reading during “coffee with the Lord” included one of my very favorite birthday greetings. Believe me, it’s a wonderful passage! Perhaps I have sent it your way in the past on a birthday or some other special occasion. It would be difficult to find anything in the Bible that is more appropriate or gracious to share with someone you care about and love for any special occasion for that matter. I’m passing it on to you today (birthday or not). A BLESSING FROM THE LORD IS ALWAYS SPECIAL!!!
Here it is – Psalm 20:1-5!!!
“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you! May he send you help from His sanctuary and give you support from Zion! May He remember all your offerings and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! May he grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans! May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!” (Psalm 20:1–5 English Standard Version)
If it’s your birthday… Happy Birthday! If it’s not your birthday… just enjoy it and be blessed!! If it’s some other special occasion accept it from God… and Me… to YOU!!
