The Benediction of Blessing


April 1, 2024

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us.

 Psalm 67:1


As you enter into a new month, imagine standing beneath the vast expanse of the night sky, a blanket of stars stretching infinitely above you. Each star, a testament to the majesty and grandeur of creation, invites you to ponder the weightiness of God's glory.


In the vastness of the universe, each star contributes to the night's brilliance, much like how each blessing in our lives combines to reveal the glory of God's presence among us. The Hebrew concept of glory, "Kabod," signifies weightiness and worthiness, reflecting the substantial nature of God's character and His actions in the world. Now consider how the weightiness of God's blessings is meant to be reflected in and through you.

This act of thanksgiving shifts our focus from what we lack to the abundance we have in Christ, thereby opening our eyes to see the weight of glory manifested in our daily lives.

However, in the hustle of daily life, it's easy to overlook these blessings, reducing them to mere coincidences or the fruits of our labor. This oversight can lead to a psychological hindrance known as "blessing blindness," where one becomes so focused on the pursuit of more or the stress of life's challenges that they fail to recognize and appreciate the blessings already present. This blindness not only robs us of joy but can also stifle our growth and the manifestation of God's glory in our lives.


To remedy this, Scripture offers a simple yet profound solution in the form of gratitude. Colossians 3:16-17 encourages us to let the message of Christ dwell among us richly as we teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in our hearts. This act of thanksgiving shifts our focus from what we lack to the abundance we have in Christ, thereby opening our eyes to see the weight of glory manifested in our daily lives.


As you reflect on the blessings in your life, challenge yourself to see beyond the immediate—to recognize the weightiness of God's glory that surrounds you. Let gratitude be the lens through which you view your circumstances, and in doing so, become a living testimony to the profound work of God's grace and provision. May the blessings you count multiply, not just in number but in their capacity to reveal the splendor of His glory to a world in desperate need of His light.

Song of Worship  

Not by Power. Song by Tasha Cobbs

Prayer - God help me daily to count my blessings. Help me to remember that "all good gifts come from The Father of Lights", they come from you. And as I acknowledge Your goodness and blessings in my life, I know those blessings will multiply and manifest in great things in my life in Jesus Name.
