We all need to be seen, heard, known and affirmed. Speaking words of blessing, desiring the good for another, is a tangible way to give these gifts.
Today, enjoy a few scriptures I’ve used in the past as a word of blessing for my sons and for others.
How might God be inviting you to speak words of blessing—good words—to the people in your life?
May the Lord hold you in his hands
for all to see–
a beautiful crown
in the hands of God
[Paraphrased from Isaiah 62:3, NLT]
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, NIV]
May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
[Psalm 20:1, 4]
“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”
[2 Thessalonians 3:16]
“May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.”
[1 Thessalonians 3:12-13]
May you grow and become strong in spirit.
May God fill you with His wisdom
And cause His grace to be upon you.
May you grow in wisdom and stature,
And in favor with God and with people.
[from Luke 1:80; 2:40, 52]
