Numbers 6:22, 23, 27 NKJV
“And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.””
Speaking and receiving biblical blessings towards your children, family, and friends is the will of God for all people. In the Levitical calling, Aaron, the priest was instructed by God through Moses to bless the people with God’s word, so that the blessings of God will abide by them forever. Thus said the Lord “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.” “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:24-27 NKJV)
When you put the Name of the Lord on your desires, dreams, children, marriage, ministry, plans, health etc., success will definitely find them. The devil knows that “the Name of the Lord is a strong Tower, and the righteous runs to it and get saved” (Proverbs 18:10).
Do you know that the “Power of tongue is life and death”? Do you know that now or later, whatever you say will come to pass? Do you realize that by spoken words, God made the entire universe? Do you know that if your agreement is not released, no one can trick, rob or deceive you? Do you also know that you can change your circumstances by simply telling them to God? “Let there be light”, and there was light (Genesis 1:3). Remember what God said, and stay on them, always. “And God said,”Let us make mankind in our image…” (Genesis 1:26).
If you are made in the image and likeness of God, why can’t you do what God does? Sin, sin, sin!!! Sin is like a virus. It pollutes, depletes and destroys. Today, if you revive in the Holy Spirit, your sins will be revealed. Once this is done, repent so that the likeness of God will become of you. Then you will say it, and it will come to pass. Are you a blessing? Do you think and speak blessings? Do you know that as you think always, so you are? God is love, full of good thoughts. His plans and thought for us is always good, success, prosperity, sound mind, victory, empowered, hopeful, etc. Are you still consumed by bitterness, evil thinking, all manners of deceits? You need to repent.
The aim of today’s devotional is to remind you of the unlimited access you have with heaven, God and His promises. Start to speak to people what you want them to speak to you. Instead of using your bad experiences to mould your future, reject them, and speak blessings into your future. For example, some of you parents speak so many hurting words to your children, simply because you are not in agreement with their father or mother. Remember, they are your future, and don’t have anything to do with your problems. Always speak God’s blessings into their lives. If you can mould them with blessings instead of curses, they will grow up to be blessed.
Are you going to adopt this life? God wants you to do it, especially on those things you want to change. Everyday, pronounce these words of blessings on your family, children and life; “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.” “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:24-27 NKJV)
“Whatever you sow, is exactly what you will reap” Speak blessings, and reap blessings. You will never be the same. Write us when it happens, and God Bless you. Amen.
