He Blesses and Keeps
The Lord bless thee, and keep thee. (Numbers 6:24)
This first clause of the high priest’s benediction is substantially a promise. That blessing which our
great High Priest pronounces upon us is sure to come, for He speaks the mind of God.
What a joy to abide under the divine blessing! This puts a gracious flavor into all things. If we are
blessed, then all our possessions and enjoyments are blessed; yea, our losses and crosses, and even
our disappointments are blessed. God’s blessing is deep, emphatic, and effectual. A man’s blessing may
begin and end in words, but the blessing of the Lord makes him rich and sanctifies. The best wish we can
have for our dearest friend is not “may prosperity attend thee,” but “the Lord bless thee.”
It is equally a delightful thing to be kept of God; kept by Him, kept near Him, kept in Him. They are
kept indeed whom God keeps; they are preserved from evil; they are reserved unto boundless
happiness. God’s keeping goes with His blessing, to establish it and cause it to endure.
The author of this little book desires that the rich blessing and sure keeping here pronounced may
come upon every reader who may at this moment be looking at these lines. Please breathe the text to
God as a prayer for His servants.
