“The LORD bless you, and keep you; the LORD make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance on you and give you peace.” (Num 6:24-26)
This is the blessing Aaron was told to give the children of Israel. The greatest blessing they could have was to have God shine upon them.
Forget about self-esteem. Self-esteem is dependent on self. My ego drives my value? No thanks. My ego can be deflated by a bad night’s sleep or a passing criticism from my neighbor. My ego can be overinflated by watching others fail or a false sense of security.
Give me this blessing. If the Lord blesses us than we are truly blessed. If the Lord values us, then we are truly valuable. If His face shines on me than my face truly shines. Moses taught us that.
Forget self-esteem. How does God esteem you?
“As the Father has loved Me [Jesus], so have I loved you. Abide in My love.” (John 15:9)
