    May you carry out the assignments of God with joy and gladness, accepting your assigned lot with humility and regarding it as holy unto the Lord. Numbers 4

    May you be comforted that, just as the tabernacle was taken down to be transported and then raised back up when the Presence of God returned, even so all in whom the Spirit of the Lord dwells, though their bodies may be put off, shall be raised again when the Lord Himself returns. Numbers 4

    May you give thanks to God for the full understand of, and gracious provision for, the work He assigns you and the team He places you in, for whether your tasks are physically taxing, mentally challenging, or emotionally demanding, He knows your needs and provides the required resources through His Word, His Spirit and His Body. Numbers 4

    May you realize that the holy truths of God are contained within drab and plain exteriors and the secret places of God are not visible to the world's casual glance, but the bronze laver was not covered, showing that the cleansing of God is available to all and the washing by the Word is always present to any who desire to be cleansed. Numbers 4

    May you understand that the purity of your walk is what will bring you into the peace of His presence, not of your own striving, but through turning to and accepting from the Son of God the initial cleansing for your life and the daily washing of your walk, for as you always recall where you have come from and how great is your constant need, your love will ever increase as you humbly accept, and give, the grace of God which is sufficient for all needs. Numbers 5

    Take My peace with you, My child, as you face the challenges of the day, the decisions of the moment, the choices for the future, so that anxiety will not distract you from the wisdom I bring you.
    Wrap My peace around you, My warrior, to be the quilting worn under My armor, allowing you to fight harder and stand longer, to hold off the onslaught of the enemy and absorb the blows from the world with less damage.
    Receive My peace, My dear one, as a gift to adorn your beauty, to set off your radiance and be a fragrance to change the atmosphere wherever I send you as My emissary and My ambassador, bearing greetings from Me and offers of comfort to men's hearts and rest to their souls as they submit to My lordship.
    Learn of My peace, My sent-out one, and delve deeply into its properties, allowing it to have its full effects in your life, soothing your soul-wounds and bringing healing to your thought-patterns, correcting your understanding and re-knitting the torn places in your heart's emotions that are weary and need rest, for this is the medicine you will bring to others as I send you to the desperately wounded and despairing, those who are like you once were.
    Walk with Me in the peaceful cool of the evening, My love, and take what I create for you with you to the harvest fields that call to you. I am always with you there, for you will hear My voice speaking to you in the midst of My peace.

    May you know the truth of the Scriptures to change your life as you study God's Word, and may you realize the power of God to redeem your soul as you walk with the Lord in relationship. Mark 12

    May you be reassured that the Lord will answer with clarity an honest question, asked from a sincere heart desiring to be taught, and will direct your path without criticizing or scolding as He does with those whose hearts are motivated by guile and deceit. Mark 12

    May you meditate on God's unfailing love as you come into His presence and give Him the praise that He deserves, unto the uttermost parts of the earth, for His right hand is filled with righteousness. Psalm 48

    May you be quick to answer when your Master calls you and swift to obey when He sends you so that you may be refreshing as a drink of cold water on a hot day and enjoyable to behold as the shade of a tree during summer. Proverbs 10:26
