Blessings of God

When Moses was called to be the deliverer of his people, he felt that he was not adequate for the job. He was alone in the desert with only his Midianite family for forty years. Your mind can think a lot of things when alone and separated. When he said that he was not a good speaker, God sent him his brother Aaron who would be the spokesman and high priest of the people. Moses came from the family of the Levite's who would become the tribe that was separated unto God. Moses and Aaron were given visions of what would happen in Egypt. Feeling most humble Moses with his brother went to Egypt. They went as sent by God, trusting Him to deliver His people. When we overcome our thoughts and circumstances by responding to the calling of God, we will be a blessing. God spoke a blessing to His people through Moses and Aaron.

Num 6:22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Num 6:23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
Num 6:24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Num 6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

We want and need the blessings of God that come by faith and obedience. We are to be the people who bless others from the blessings we receive through God. This is promised through the Abrahamic covenant, to the people of faith in the one true God.

Gen 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. 

Be blessed and share your blessings.
