25. What God Wants
Verse Of The Day: May 25
Numbers 6:24-26 NLT
“‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’”
For thousands of years God's people have been pronouncing a blessing on their people. If you have ever been to a traditional church, you may have see this near the closing of their service. It's something spiritual and very special.
In a world where words are exchanged so freely and political correctness is at all time high, speaking God's blessing over each other is the most powerful thing you could say.
God actually does want to bless you and protect you, because you are very special to Him. God created you in His image and wants you to experience His intimate friendship.
No matter what is happening in your life God wants to smile on you and extend His grace to you so that He can help you with your daily choices.
In a world filled with stress and anxiety God wants you to experience His peace. This will keep you safe from the need to compromise and the temptation to have to please everyone. God wants you to be free to be your true self, who He made you to be.
How much do I sense the pleasure of God about my life?
Father, thank you for Your blessing in my life. You are generous toward me with Your kindness and peace. Help me live strong for You and not buckle under the pressure of others. Help me love others without needing their approval. Amen.
