(Numbers 6:24-26) “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”

Is work stressing you out?  Do relationship problems have you down in the dumps?  Has your weight or health problems got you feeling a bit depressed?  Chances are all of us have something on our minds this week that we are struggling with.

But as we struggle with our difficulties God sends us a reminder.  He reminds us that no matter what is going on in our lives that His blessing is upon us and never leaves us!   The almighty creator God keeps us in His tender care as He gives us food, clothing, house, home, and all that we need for body and life.  He reminds us that He is gracious to us as He has given us His Son who has forgiven us of our sins and won for us eternal life free of charge! And He reminds us that He has given us peaceThrough the faith the Holy Spirit has given us we have the peace of knowing that no matter what situation is going on in our lives that God will use it for our good.

Even in our most difficult times our heavenly Father’s face shines upon us because of what Jesus has done for us!  

Thankful for the reminder that God has given me, just like you,
