Pastor author and Bible teacher Alan Wright you don't have a time in your life when you're not watched by your heavenly father means there's no problem. So great that God is not caring for you, watching over you means you can sleep it might going that your father never slumbered that's Pastor Alan Wright welcome to another message of good news that will help you see your life for a whole new light.

I'm being excited for you to hear today's message in a series titled the power of blessing is presented with an older church in North Carolina. If you're not able to stay with us throughout the entire program I want to make sure you know how to get our special resource right now. It can be yours for your donation this month to Alan Wright ministry as you listen to today's message go deeper as we send you today special offer. Contact us at that's Pastor or call 877-544-4860 that's 877-544-4860. More on that later in the program but right now let's get started with today's teaching in the series praying with our here is Alan Wright. Interestingly, the word for pool in Hebrew is again from the same root as Blass and Neil Blass and Neil and Poole all related and the images that when a camel who was really an animal that was a beast of burden in the sense of being able to carry goods, you could load up 512,000 pounds of goods on a camel and Karen for long distance and so if you want to load that camel up goods. Then the camel had to kneel down and then get loaded with the goods and get back up, and off it would go and so probably this is the image is that took Blass is a have a camel kneel down and get loaded up with goods so it can rise up and carry him somewhere. So in real sense to when you when I lift my hands up and say Lord bless you and keep you posture of your heart is your camel and you get submitted in kneel down and you know like this before the Lord, because it's your time to be loaded up right.

That's why sometimes just just figuratively on is a good thing of some as big a blessed night at home my hands up like this. Was this like I'm been right to receive or just letting his living your whole spirit know my body is agreeing with this. I'm ready to receive.

I'm just load me up. Lord, is that that's what that's what it means load me up as I want brothers a sale as I prayed over this load me up, carry it somewhere else will come.

I will get loaded up again that's that that's the picture of of Blass and the idea that we have been demonstrating in is that blessing is not complicated because it really is when you want good for somebody and you everything within you speaks it and believes it. Having invoked the word of God in agreement. I was reading the quote from Dallas Willard, who I think this is a good definition. He said blessing is the projection of good into the life of another. It isn't just words is the actual putting forth of your will, for the good of another person and always involves God because when you will the good of another person, you realize only God is capable of bringing that you bless someone when you will there good under the invocation of God. You invoke God on their behalf to support the good that you will for them is good, since I won't good for you.

I will things go well for you.

I want you to prosper you to be at peace when you be healthy. I want good things to come in your life since was in the heart of semi that blesses and your invoking the word of God as you do so. Lord bless you, Lord, bless you and the Hebrews in the singular is not all y'all. If you the blessing of God is for you is not is not just for somebody else is for you because you have been qualified for your share of the inheritance in the saints by the blood of Christ for you.

So much of life changes when you hear the word of God for you is one thing to hear.

God loves everybody another hear God say I love you.

The Lord bless you and keep you wherever keep it means watch protect care for, keep, and in that sense is kind of a silly example, but on this is what can my mom last thinking of the definition is word keep as is to watch something it's not. Watch like watch TV if watch like when my wife says I'm going to the ladies room. Once my pocketbook now. This means that your assignment is to make sure that this pocketbook doesn't get touched by anybody else, and to not let it out of your eyesight calls that pocketbook. I'm nervous about leaving it here, but I will trust you that you're gonna watch it the whole time watch my pocketbook and this is something by way ladies that we hate doing, we lose masculinity chips every time we and if you have to hold a pocketbook. That's that's far worse than having to watch a pocketbook is one thing to watch a pocketbook in the Inna and Anna on a seat in a restaurant.

It's another to hold it that everything to do with this actual metaphor at the moment except to say that to watch this Hebrew word for watch or keep means to watch in temporally so as not to let anything happen to it. No one to take it and no one to harm it to keep means that you are worth keeping.

You don't diligently watch something and keep something unless it is very important and very valuable ever lost something valuable and really valuable and then found it and after you found it your life.

There's no way I'm ever let this out of my sight now on. This will never happen again. I'm going to make sure I don't lose this again. The Bible describes our lives at seven been lost, and then been found. We are found by God, and we once were lost to God, but we been found by God. And when he has found us, keeps us because he treasures us that the parables about lost things. Those things that were lost and then and then found a coin this loss and then found a son that was lost and then found see what what what was lost were represented as the person that was lost, and then found by the owner who is God, and so this bears light up in Matthew 1344 where Jesus is the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field and for much of my life and many people interpret this to mean that we found the kingdom of God and then we need to sell everything we have, you know, give up and relinquish everything we have in order to make sure that we have the kingdom don't think that's what this is about because the context of the other parables show that when Jesus is speaking of the earth. He uses this kind of imagery and that what really he's talking about is something that was found by God in the earth which is you and you and I are the treasurer and God goes and he sells the ultimate ultimate price. The most precious thing imaginable.

The gift of his own son and buys you back and he buys you back so that you will never be lost from him and so for God to keep you means that he's holding onto you because you were the lost treasure and you been found by him, through Jesus Christ, to be watch to be kept. It means that he wants you that ahead of time. He's decided that year that valuable and his affection is for you like a parent's affection for a child who comes home from the hospital with a little baby and just because on the first night. The baby cries and keeps them up on like the parent that is I will. I don't want you anymore because you're a lot of trouble and you're not as good as I thought because or something else that's taken place near my and because your mind everything within me wants to protect you was to care for you was to cover you was to watch you was to make sure that no harm comes upon you. The Lord bless you and keep you in means that you don't have a time in your life and when you're not watched by your heavenly father means that there is no problem so great that God is not caring for you, watching over you. It means you can sleep it night going that your father never slumbers and he keeps watch over you diligently like the Lord bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you and that's Alan Wright will have more teaching moment. Today's important series. That's Alan Wright will have more teaching moment.

This broadcast is only possible because of listener financial support. When you get today.

We will send you a special offer. We are happy to send this to you as I thanks from Alan Wright Ministries, seven 877-544-4869 today's teaching now continues your once again is Alan Wright counselor Leanne Payne calls the smile of a mother towards her baby. The umbilical cord of the soul beautiful image and this is consistent with numerous studies about the power of the gaze of a parent upon a newborn child. :-) The shining face is interpreted even by newborn babies as an affirmation is astounding fact that a little baby.

They have proven through studies, who does not have words and cannot consciously process all of this has some kind of connection that they think is directly to the right brain, in which the baby sees her mother smile at her and the baby translates that into affirmation and along with this.

When a parent mirrors the child's expressions.

If the child smiles and the parent smiles the child learn something from that. And if the child has an upset face in the parent mirrors that it is a expression of compassion that I understand what's going on. They say children to get a lot of mirroring of their expressions learn to be in touch with their own emotions.

This is all going on unconsciously because the face not only reveals who you are. The face reveals how you feel.

And it doesn't just reveal how you feel.

In general, but when you look at somebody. It reveals how you feel about them.

That's what the face means this is how you feel.

There's a study that shows that in premature babies. The oxygen saturation increases when someone pleasantly looks at the baby under same as in the natural with a little baby is changed just by seeing someone's face shine. How much more so when you see in the spirit. The way that God looks.

I want you know how God looks because his face reveals how he feels towards see the shining face means I'm happy to see you and I'm happy with you and I'm happy about who you are happy about that you face shine smiles and thus it makes a lot of sense that the psalmist says your face, Lord, that I seek like a little toddler that's in a big crowd and all the sudden can't see his is daddy's face and then space am confident again to see your face is saying no Lord want you to know that he's there that you want to know that his face is shining is radiant is smiling is happy upon you Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you because grace is what being given good things that you don't deserve it means gift how are you going to ever believe that you receive a gift from God. When you see his face in his face is smiling. That's the disposition of someone who is benevolent towards you with propitious towards you, who is favorable towards to come into a king's presence. And he smiled at you. Okay, I can relax here some goods that happen, and then the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and this is to say, not only does his face smile, but he lifts up his face. It's the Chinese who in ancient times became the phrase losing face. And we know what that means that you if you lose face when interesting statement right but it has, it seemed you could understand in two ways. One is that if you come into the presence of someone that you want to be proud of you, but you come into their presence and they do this.

That's a way of saying I'm ashamed of you. My face, my face goes down.

I'm I'm ashamed of you. I don't.

I'm not proud of you. It is a way of saying I don't really want to look at you so if you come in to someone's presence in their face goes down, then you could say of lost face, but you also can communicate it this way, that of your own expression that how you feel about something is demonstrate what you do with your face, not just the expression on your face, which is the shining of the face, but whether the face comes up when the face comes up it says it says infinite things it says I like the look of that and I feel good about that and I want to see it. So golfers golfers little what we do. This is why golfers lose golf balls is because the shots that are good ones. We lift up our face and watch it hold or pose for as long as possible to want to go down the middle of the fairway, but ironically those the ones you don't have to watch because you know there to be the fairway but is the ball that you hook over into the woods.

You just your Facebook's house so hard to make even what you just only model is only one I don't I don't want to even acknowledge it that came forth from me to lose face. What it means is that when you come into the presence of God, the God has done something so thorough and so rich and so wonderful and the person Jesus Christ.

Not only does his face shine upon you.

I like who you are, but his countenance lifts up one Hebrew scholar said that it really is the image of a father taking a little toddler sifting her up above his head and then lifting his face up to look into her eyes hard lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace because of his face shines upon you. You know that Grace is coming and if he lifts up his face, then you know you have not lost face in the presence of God but instead you can relax. He is well pleased with you. How in the world.

Can you believe this, how in the world can you receive this you receive this by believing the gospel you receive the blessing of God by thinking much of what God has done for you of thinking. Much of what Christ has accomplished on the cross of every single day. All throughout the day and every moment at the highest moments of pinnacle in the lowest valley moments of your life. You remind yourself of what God has done for you in Jesus Christ, that it is so thorough once you have accepted Christ. Your sin is cast as far as the east is from the west and God doesn't see it anymore. He doesn't hold it against you is thrown into a sea of forgetfulness, so that when I raise my hands that the Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face shine upon you and something is to be shining his face upon me the center that I am, you must understand that the God you have been a holy you are here for evermore. What this means in the gospel is that he has not only forgiven you, but he has become perfectly favorable towards you because he is credited to your account. All of the merit of Jesus Christ. What this means you get back is our belief, but is the gospel, God looks upon you in the same way he looks upon his son the Lord Jesus and you are a co-with him. This is why God says identify my people let him know who they are and put my name on them by simply blessing them because as you do, they will be identified for who they really are and that is they are my people, my heirs, my children forever and you will know this when you just bow down before him and save will Lord, I am ready to be blessed God has made it possible so that you can know and see his benevolent face toward you brings grace and peace and that Allen right today's teaching in the series, the power of blessing and we invite you to stay with us.
