“The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,“Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them, The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. “So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.” – Numbers 6:22-27
In the case of Sampson’s mother, the Angel of the Lord appeared to her and gave her instructions. Sampson’s mother was obedient and God blessed them.
Look up today for all that you desire can be found in Him. Your obedience unto God is what pleases him more than your sacrifice. Remember God looks at the heart of man, not whether he is perfect in his ways.
Seek the ways of God.
Questions for Reflection:
▪ Like Sampson’s mother was obedient, what does this mean to me?
▪ Sometimes God will require things of me that I did not expect. Is this well with my soul?
▪ Do I seek to know the ways of God?
▪ What is my attitude toward God in general?
