The Lord Blesses





“The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.
 Ps. 29:11 (NIV)

“The Lord. . .” We call Him Father, King, and Savior. He protects us from ourselves, from our sin. We,his children, are thankful for all He does for us.

“. . . gives . . .” God gave us His Son. That Son gave his life in order to save us from our sins. We return thanks and worship Him for all He gives us.

“. . . strength . . .” The Father gives us power to go forward in our spiritual lives. He grants us the ability to stand for Him.

“. . . his people . . .” We are His children. God gave us this privilege of His own Will. He gave us His Son so that we might know about Him and His ways.
“. . . blesses . . .” bestows gifts, grants goodness, and lavishes love onto all those who follow Him.

“. . . peace . . .” the absence of strife, His presence when all around us is chaos.
The Lord blesses us each day. He gives us strength for each day.

    1. Rhonda: Thank you for your kind words. If didn't have the Lord, I would be a total basket case, reacting to everything that comes down the pike. I thank the Lord for his saving grace.

  2. I'm very thankful to be called a child of the King, one of His people. I don't have to do life by myself, and that's great news!

  3. Hi Cecelia! Love the Irish blessing, so beautiful.

    I need his peace everyday, that is for sure. Life can be awfully messy. But I know he'll help me, just as he will help you too, my good friend.

    Happy Thursday!
