God Bless You!

The LORD told Moses, “When Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel, they must say: I pray that the LORD will bless and protect you, and that he will show you mercy and kindness. May the LORD be good to you and give you peace.”

(Numbers 6:22-26 CEV)

While only the priestly family of Aaron were allowed to convey this blessing on the people of Israel, every believer in Christ today, who has been declared a priest by God (1 Peter 2:9), can bestow this blessing on others as well. This benediction encompasses everything that anyone would want–God’s blessing, protection, favour and peace. It has become my prayer for family and friends. If you want to bless someone and aren’t sure how, start with Numbers 6:24-26. It’s my prayer “that the LORD will bless and protect you, and that he will show you mercy and kindness. May the LORD be good to you and give you peace.”

Believers in Christ can impart blessings on others.
