Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Prophesying a Blessing
May God Bless This Child !
The baby Shower for my
granddaughter, was a long traveling distance away and I had agreed to drive my daughter
and my niece to the destination.
The day before the shower, we
drove part way and arrived at our hotel where reservations had been made.
The next morning after a good nights rest and a leisurely
hotel breakfast, we journeyed 50 more miles to the place where the party would
In the back yard, women,
young and old gathered in the shade of trees and under large umbrellas while
soon, the invitation was given to partake of salads, chips and small sandwiches
that were ready and waiting.
My pregnant granddaughter sat
across from us chatting with another young lady who was also obviously
pregnant.In my spirit I knew that I
must give the unborn child of my granddaughter a blessing.
My thought was to not be
obvious but it seemed impossible.A third
young lady joined the two and she also was pregnant.The three women were in a small cluster and
at once it occurred to me to bless them all.
God had given me the words
for my granddaughter, “May this child learn to love Jesus at an early age; and
may she mature and become a mighty woman of God.”
As I viewed the second friend, I knew her
child would be full of joy and be used of God.
Quickly I approached the
three, and said, “I would like to bless your babies, and when you hear a
blessing that is for someone else, you may also claim it for yourself.
Then I touched my granddaughter’s protruding
stomach and made my declaration,
“May this child learn to love Jesus at an
early age; and may she mature and become a mighty woman of God.”
Then I turned to the second
woman and said, “Your child will love Jesus and be used of God and will be a
person full of joy.”For some reason she
laughed and seemed to be sharing a secret with God.
At times making a
proclamation or a declaration over someone, might seem to be a risk.
What will people think?Will I be received?Is this what God is asking me to do?
Be sure the words are given
to you by God and not just made up off the top of your head.
The Apostle Paul said NOT to
despise prophesy and rather to encourage and participate in the divine
1 Corinthians_14:1Follow after charity, and desire spiritual
gifts, but rather that ye mayprophesy.
