Blessed by God

The priestly benediction of Aaron is the great benediction of the Old Testament. In Numbers 6:22–27, the Lord commanded the priests to lift up their hands and pronounce this blessing over His people. By so doing, God affirmed His commitment to bless His people according to His will and by His Word. In this lesson, Dr. Charles considers the nature of this particular benediction and the fact that we can trust the God who pledged Himself to bless us.
