Numbers 6:25 WEB

Yahweh make his face to shine on you,
and be gracious to you.

Promise #126: My face will shine upon you all the days of your life.

We live in an area in Canada where it is very cloudy in the winter months. Sometimes we can go weeks without ever seeing the sun. When the sun does eventually come out, the feeling of exhilaration is almost indescribable. The gloomy feeling of gray skies day after day can really take its toll on a person's emotional wellbeing.

Today's promise is taken from the priestly blessing in Numbers 6 that the Lord told Moses to pray over Israel on a daily basis. In this blessing from the Lord, Moses tells the people that the face of the Lord will shine upon them all the days of their life. Can you imagine living every day of your life being aware of the brightness and warmth of our God and Father's countenance?

Even though clouds do come our way, we can rise above the clouds (just like we can in an airplane) and still see His face shining on us. My prayer today is that each and every one of us would feel the warmth of His love and the brightness of His face shining upon us. We are not called to walk this life alone. Our Father is watching over us every step of the way.

Luke 12:32 WEB

Donít be afraid, little flock,
for it is your Fatherís good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.

Promise #125: I am delighted to give you My kingdom.

Jesus makes this promise to His disciples just after He tells them not to take any thought for their life, because they have a heavenly Father that has promised to provide for them. In this intimate conversation with His friends, Jesus encourages them to 'seek first His Father's kingdom' and all of their practical needs will be met as well.

Then Jesus wraps up His conversation by declaring today's Scripture verse... "Fear not, little flock, for it is your Fatherís good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (ESV) Isn't it wonderful that we don't have to be worried? Isn't it reassuring to know that we don't have to live in fear because God is absolutely delighted to give us His kingdom?

As Jesus says in today's text, we are His little flock. Little lambs can't protect themselves, they can't provide for themselves, they can't manage the cares of daily life. All they can do is live a life close to their shepherd. It is so comforting to know that Jesus is our Great Shepherd and we have no need under His watchful eye.

May each one of us be encouraged today and hear the voice of Jesus speaking deep in our hearts the words that He spoke to His disciples... "Fear not, little flock, for it is your Fatherís good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (ESV)

Have a blessed Sunday!

Psalm 139:13 WEB
For you formed my inmost being.
You knit me together in my motherís womb.

Promise #124: I gently formed you in your mother's womb.

The New International Version Bible says Psalm 139:13 this way... For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my motherís womb. (NIV) The New Living Translation says... You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my motherís womb. (NLT) No matter what translation you prefer, this is a gentle picture of God's loving creation process.

You were not blasted into creation, but gently formed in your mother's womb by a loving God who took the time to delicately knit all your inward parts together. May the revelation of your creation bring a sense of well being to your soul. You were not a mistake. God planned you before the foundation of the world and He determined the exact time of your birth.

One of the greatest tragedies in this world today is the feeling that our lives were a mistake. Some people were even told that by their parents. The truth is that no life was ever a mistake. Each person ever created, was created with intention by the One who is love itself. God gently formed you in your mother's womb and He is the One who brought you forth on the day you were born. (Psalm 71:6) There is absolutely no doubt about it!

Blessings upon your day!

Psalm 37:18
Yahweh knows the days of the perfect.
Their inheritance shall be forever.

Promise #123: All your days are known to Me and your inheritance is secure forever.

In today's Scripture verse, King David declares that all of the days of the upright are known to the Lord. In Psalm 139:16, David also says that each one of our days has been recorded in a special book before even one of them came to be.

God knows us through and through and He loves us with all His heart. His eyes are upon those whom He loves and their inheritance is secure forever. For those who have said 'yes' to Jesus, we can rest in the unshakeable and everlasting inheritance that we have in Christ. It is a hope that will never fade or lose it's value.

You are of great worth to God and He loves to watch over you. May the truth of this promise cause hope to well up in your heart today knowing that you are truly safe and secure in the big strong arms of your heavenly Dad.
