We say, "I've been blessed," or, "What a blessing!" but what are we saying?

 The Lord said to Moses, "Tell Aaron and his sons, 'This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
-Numbers 6:22-26 TNIV

These are not simply words spoken. For Jews, the Old Testament mindset, to say words is to bring them into reality. "Let there be light, and there was light!" Moses receives instructions to bless God's people. Having spoken the words, it is done!

Receive God's blessing today. "The Lord bless you..." Having spoken the words, it is done!
