Every single time I listen to this song I feel the Holy Spirit so strong! These are anointing words for you and your family. I encourage you to listen and RECEIVE all that God has for you, for your family, for your children and their children! Woo hoo!!! I love this one and I think you will too my friends.

This Song Here

When I first heard this song, The Blessing by Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes, I was super busy on my commute to work. I had a hard time slowing down to really listen to what was being sung. But, man, once I heard it. I mean like really heard the heart of this song I was blown away. It ministers so deeply to my soul. All I have to say is, play it on repeat and thank me later. 😉

Your Soul

This song will heal your soul if you let it. Your soul consists of your mind, will and emotions. In the grand scheme of things, thoughts provoke feelings and feelings initiate actions. So, your soul has EVERYTHING to do with your quality of life. Let’s break that down.

Your Mind

My mind consists of every thought in my head, conscious and subconscious, all day long. My thoughts frame my reality. They determines whether I’m going to have a good, positive day or not so good.

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…

Proverbs 23:7, Amplified

Your Emotions

My emotions are fueled from my mind, which consists of every thought I think. Our thought patterns ignite our feelings. Negative thought patterns result in anxiety, fear, anger, and eventually depression or even worse, rage. Positive thoughts have the opposite effect. By changing your thinking, you can not only have a better day but a better life. You can experience joy, hope, and my personal favorite, peace! Your circumstances may not change, but if your thinking evolves to a positive approach your feelings will line up too.

…and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ

2 Corinthians 10:5, Amplified

Your Will

Once you take your thoughts captive and bring them to the obedience of Christ (which basically means having thoughts that line up with God’s promises for your life) then, your actions will change. You will actually feel like doing the right thing; and you will start to bless others instead of cursing them. Imagine yourself encouraging others instead of complaining with them. As your perspective changes your actions will change. You see, your actions are your will. Once your will is lined up with God’s will you are literally unstoppable. You will have stepped into your God-given destiny.

Delight yourself in the Lord,
And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart.

Psalm 37:4, Amplified

As you delight in your Savior, Jesus Christ, He will give you the desires in your heart. Remember this, the godly desires in your heart right now are not only yours. They are also God’s desires for you. You are His child; His very own. He wants you to know how much He loves you. And, because He loves you, He wants to bless you.

The Priestly Blessing

These lyrics are directly from scripture! Check out this excerpt from Numbers 6:

22 The Lord said to Moses, 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:

24 “The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.”’

27 “So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”

Numbers 6:22-27, NIV

So, listen to this song again and receive the blessing being released. May His favor be upon you and a thousand generations. And your family and your children and their children and their children. May His presence go before you and behind you and beside you. His presence is all around you and within you. He is for YOU!
