Memorise: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: Numbers 6:25

Read: Numbers 6:22-26 (KJV)  

22 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:

25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Message:-

What is favour? The Yorubas describes it aptly as ‘a good face’. That means there are two kinds of faces – a bad face and a good one.

I am sure you know that when a person is angry, no matter how beautiful or handsome, he/she will begin to look like an angry lion. Everything changes – the nostrils flare, the lips thin out and the whole face gradually turns bad. But when people who are ordinarily not considered good-looking smile, somehow their beauty will come out. In Numbers 6:24-26, the Almighty God said that whatever His priests want to bless the people, they should speak thus:

 

“The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD makes his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: the LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”

 

When God lifts His eyes in your community, sees you and smiles, that is what is called favour. The Almighty God is going to smile on you today in the mighty name of Jesus.

Now, if you find favour with God.

What can you expect? Somebody once said that a single encounter with divine favour is worth more than a lifetime of labour. In Luke 5:1-7, Peter fished all night and caught nothing, but just one sentence from God changed everything. You may have been struggling for so long with nothing to show for it; you will find favour with God today in the mighty name of Jesus. Romans 9:16 says:

“So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.”

 

This passage tells us that the height you get to in life is only determined by the favour of God. Nobody can go higher than the favour of God permits.

 

God’s favour gives life. Psalm 30:5 says:

 

“For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for the night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

 

Favour singles you out for special attention. The man at the pool of Bethesda was singled out for a miracle (John 5:5-8).  I pray God will favour you today and single you out for great miracles in the mighty name of Jesus.

Prayer Point:

Father, smile on me today!
