Set Apart Devotional June 20

by David Joynt on June 20, 2024

LEVITICUS 9:23-24 | 23 Moses and Aaron entered the tent of meeting and then came out and blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. 24 Fire came out from the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar, and when all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces.

Helping people deal with their brokenness and struggle, and helping them find their way toward holiness and connection with God—it is a great calling! It is messy, because the patterns of life create conflict and wounds and vices and confusion. But the God Aaron and his sons served, and the One we serve, wants to come near His hurting children. He wants to bless them. In our passage, Aaron gets to announce God’s blessing on the people. We too have this privilege—we can bless people in His name, knowing that our words can carry His grace.


Bless someone today in God’s name.



Gracious God,

There are moments when the people we meet are hurting and exhausted and need a blessing. Open our eyes and hearts so we can respond to these times.
