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.” Numbers 6:24-26
04/20/09 I love the “keep” part! It means that the Lord will keep watch over you. It means that He will protect you. It means that He will not allow any harm to come to you. It means that you belong to Him. It means that anything that touches your life must first touch His. I am floored that the King of the Universe cares that much about me! This is what it means to be truly cherished. We are loved so deeply, so completely, that everything else pales in comparison. There is no greater love than this. Christ laid His life down for us so that we would be spared. He paid the penalty for our sins by spilling His own blood, and now we belong to Him. Paid in full. He gets to keep us. Forever. Hallelujah!
