There have been 138 pyramids discovered in Egypt as of 2008. The most famous are those found at Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo. The Pyramid of Khufu at Giza is the largest Egyptian pyramid. It is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence. The Great Pyramid consists of an estimated 2.3 million limestone blocks.

Key Verse: Genesis 47:10

So Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.

At this time, Egypt was at its zenith and Pharaoh may have been the most important ruler on earth. Two verses in today’s reading (Gen. 47:7,10) tell us that Jacob (Israel – Prince of God) blessed Pharaoh. This is an act of sharing the grace of God that was given again and again to Jacob, passed down from Abraham and Isaac. This may have been a simple prayer for Pharaoh, or it may have been the laying of Israel’s hand on Pharaoh. In Genesis 48:14 Israel blessed Joseph and his two sons by laying his hands on them. God gave Israel a prophetic word for them. To qualify to bless others (please don’t make a big scene, you’ll hurt people rather than bless them if you do) you must be a believer. We have these words in Mark 16:17-18, “These signs will follow them that believe… they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.” What a blessing! Acts 19:6, “And when Paul had laid his hands on them, they spoke with tongues and prophesied.” Go ahead and bless someone today!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Dear Lord, please inspire me to look for opportunities to bless someone today. You have blessed me through others who have prayed for me; now give me grace and willingness to pass on the blessing. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

I’ve been blessed by so many. At 19, two teachers at Bible College laid hands on my head and, according to two doctors, I was healed of a life-threatening condition. At 23, I was ordained by the laying on of hands into the ministry of Jesus Christ and His Church. At 25, I was blessed by a gift of $300.00 for the start up of the Crossroads TV ministry. One time, when I was under an attack of the enemy, a lady in her eighties laid hands on me and gave me a special word from God. Every night when Norma-Jean was carrying our four children, I would lay my hand on her tummy and bless the little ones inside and pray for Norma-Jean too. Over and over, too many times to count, I’ve been blessed by others. As I lay my fingers on the keyboard of this computer, I pray that I will bless you with this daily blog.

Yours for God’s richest blessing on you who read this,

David

  1. Thank You, Lord God, for the many blessings You have given us, and thank You for all those who have blessed us. Bless all Your children today, Lord. Help each one be a blessing in all the places he or she goes, in Jesus’s great name, amen

  2. Amen, Rob!
    We thank You Lord for blessing us in so many ways. May we bless others in return.
    May we have a word of encouragement for someone today. May we whisper a prayer for someone and bless them in that way. Above all, May we bless You, oh Lord by being faithful and obedient to Your Word.
    I ask that You bless all bloggers. Amen!

  3. Amen Rob & Luisa. My friend Christine moved from Burlington to Val Dor in Quebec last year to be closer to the reserve of her family who are on the reserve near there. She informed me that her grandson in law has been very ill from Covid. He’s the father of 5 (48 years old) and was flown to Montreal on breathing tubes & in an induced coma. I told Christine we would pray for him. He needs a mighty touch from God. A very urgent need. Please pray with me for him (I’ll call him Bob as I don’t know his name). Thank you all. Blessings all.

    • Doreen
      I’m coming into an agreement with you and pray for your situation that God would move and touch and answer as he sees fit
      Blessings to you today
      And blessings to all who read this blog today amen 🙏✝️

    • Doreen, agreeing with you in prayer for your friend
      Christine’s grandson-in-law Bob. That our Lord God
      would bless him and heal him from Covid, in
      Jesus’ Name, Amen.
      Please God bless all who read this blog.

  4. Amen to all the prayers today
    And I will also come into agreement with the prayers for ‘Bob’. May the greatest hands of healing reach down and touch him

    • I am also in agreement with the prayer’s for Bob. I am praying for his family (who are probably devastated) that they would feel the peace that surpasses understanding in their hearts.
      Praying this in the precious name of Jesus 🙏🙏🙏

  5. What a blessing to know the heart of Christ in David. I loved reading that as he was typing David Mainse was praying a blessing on those of us who are following through the Bible with him. Even now that David is with the Lord we are blessed by the works of Holy Spirit still working to bless us through 100 Words.

  6. I also am joining in the prayers for “Bob”. May God touch him and heal him completely. May He encourage him and the family at this difficult time. May His mercy be abundant towards this family!
