“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace” (Num 6:24-26; NIV). This was the blessing that the Lord told Moses to speak over the children of Israel; this blessing is timeless and still applicable today. The Hebrew word for bless is barach and means to “increase in prosperity.” Prosperity doesn’t just apply to our finances but to every area of our lives. We learn more about being blessed in Deuteronomy chapter 28 where it says that, “blessings will overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God” (Deut 28:2; NKJV). Read Deut 28:1-14 and see how blessed you are! In Psalm 1 we read about the blessing that comes on those that delight in God and His word. Verse 3 says that person will be like a vibrant tree and “whatever he does shall prosper” (Ps 1:3; NKJV).
In the New Testament, Matt 5:1-11 we have the Beatitudes which means supreme blessedness. In each beatitude we have to behave a certain way in order to be supremely blessed. We are also told by the apostle Paul that we are, “blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” (Eph 1:3; NKJV). It doesn’t get much better than that! Of course, there is so much more in the Bible with regard to being blessed but I close with this verse, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (John 20:29; NKJV). That’s us!
