The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them, The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. "So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them." (Numbers 6:22-27 ESV)
Ever wonder what it means to have God's face shine upon you? Matthew Henry comments on this and likens God's face "to the shining of the sun upon the earth, to enlighten and comfort it, and to renew the face of it." I really like this picture of God's face shining down upon us.. warming our hearts.. helping our souls to grow.. and causing us to grow as His words light our paths.
Father, I am so thankful for the warmth of Your Spirit.. thank you for causing me to grow in Your grace.. and all praise be to you for the light of Jesus.. Your living Word.
