The Blessing

Christmas 2020

Long before He was born, the Lord was at work making a way for your life to be blessed.  He put His name on you before you had a name.  And now, as we celebrate His birth this Christmas Day 2020, receive this blessing from Him.

In Numbers 6:22-27, God says – “the Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace”.

2020 has been a year we will remember for its challenges and how things have caused us to change how we live.  May this blessing come to life in you and may it become the reason you change who you are as much as circumstances have changed how you live.

Let His goodness be upon you always and let His favor go before you and keep you.  And may the wonder of His graciousness towards you be the reason you change your ways and come to live even more for Him.  And may His face and His presence shine upon you like the brightest stars illuminating the way for many who are lost.  And finally, may He give you peace in the midst of all that is storming around and about you.

Love those you should love; bless everyone; be gracious towards all; let your favor be upon all those you know and love; turn your face towards good and towards those who need to see the unimaginable; have no issues with anyone and be no issue for anyone but be at peace with all.

Now, if you are not ready to accept this blessing for yourself, the Lord is gracious and patient even in that.  But accept it then for your children and for your children’s children and for their children and their children and the generations of all those who will come after you.

Merry Christmas!

Be gracious to us Lord!
