Psalm 115:12-18 “The Lord has been mindful of us, He will bless us: He will bless the house of Israel, He will bless the house of Aaron [the priesthood], He will bless those who reverently and worshipfully fear the Lord, both small and great. May the Lord give you increase more and more, you and your children. May you be blessed of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth! The heavens are the Lord’s heavens, but the earth has He given to the children of men. The dead praise not the Lord, neither any who go down into silence. But we will bless (affectionately and gratefully praise) the Lord from this time forth and forever. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)”
How amazing that the Lord of all Heaven has been mindful of us- that he stooped down to touch us and get us started on this great journey! Thankfully, though, it doesn’t stop there. These verses say He has and He will! The blessing is ongoing throughout our whole life and then overflows to the next generation, (v14) and what’s more, it increases!
Let us, in response, be those who have the will to bless and affectionately praise Him for his ongoing love and favour.
