SCRIPTURE READING: (Numbers chapter 6:24-26) 24 “‘“The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; 26 the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’ Brothers and sisters, the above Bible verses are very significant to us as Christians. These Verses are our pillars, right? These Bible Verses play a very important role in us, why? This is because they are pillars to which we grasp and anchor with, in times of any hardships in our life. If we do the back reading of the entire chapter of this book, we will be abel to know that before! There are alot of ceremonies that the oldest people would do in order to worship God, right? Yes! They carry on, various ceremonies, and in fact, in verse 3, this is for dedication right? The vow, contains some instructions, it instructs to must abstain from wine and other fermented drink and must not drink vinegar made from wine or other fermented drink. Let us remember brothers and sisters, our Living God is holy, right? (Leviticus 19:2) But since we are still in this earthly body, that is; human body, we cannot deny that we sometimes commit mistakes or things which do not please Him. Sometimes, this is the reason why we are become far from the blessings of God, right? Due to our unwanted deeds. And it can be read in Romans 3:23, all men commit mistakes and separate from God's glory. Nevertheless brothers and sisters and friends, Jesus Christ our Lord, descended from heaven, in order for us to be restored, right! If our USB or MEMORY cards had been infected with various viruses, computer viruses, we need a certain app to restore the content of our USB or Memory cards, however, in restoring our relationship to our Living God, we need not app but, we need our living Lord God Jesus Christ to reconnect our relation to God the Father. In Romans 6:23, it is being stated there, "For the wages of sins is death nevertheless the gift of God is the everlasting life that can only be met in our Lord JESUS CHRIST." Brothers and sisters and friends, we need to accept Jesus Christ in our heart as our Lord and Personal Savior, and in that, we can have or we will have a live relation, right? A personal relation to our Living God. If we have this relation to our Living God, we can have the authority to receive His blessings. This is because our Heavenly Father has been become our Spiritual Father and we can cry out to Him and say, "Father". John chapter 1 verse 12, It reads, "For those who accept Him He gives the opportunity to be children of God". If we have the live and personal relation to our God brothers and sisters and friends, the Lord make his face shine on us, He bless us and takes care on us. He turn his face toward us even if sometimes, we commit wrong things in His orbs, for He is very gracious God (PSALM 116:5) AMEN!
There is 24 hours in one day and 365days in one year, let us give an hour or two in each day of our time to praise and serve our Almighty because our time is his time lend to us. To always be blessed and be guided by Him, follow his command. Be humble, be lowly, help and love one another. Turn your back in all bad things, in all bad doings.
