The Blessing of Shalom

Blessing of Shalom, Roy Lessin, Photo by Marina Bromley

Then Gideon built an altar there unto the Lord, and called it Jehovah-shalom.” Judges 6:24

Mandy, Marina, and I would like to close our times of posting on Meet Me in the Meadow by extending to you the blessing of Shalom.

“Shalom” is much more than a casual social greeting— it is a prayer, a blessing, a deep desire, and a benediction. It is a word that is packed with the full blessing of God. In Hebrew the word has many significant meanings throughout the Scriptures. The following blessing is a compilation of those meanings.

Envision us standing by you with hands extended, speaking these words of blessing over your life…

May you be whole in body, soul, and spirit as a result of being in harmony with God’s will and purpose for your life.

May His peace be your covering, may your heart know His fullness,
and by His mighty power may you know victory over every enemy.

May He bring to pass the deepest desires of your heart.

May you know the healing power of His presence,
and the restoration of every broken relationship.

Through His sufficiency, may every need you face
be met by His limitless resources.

May His covenant promises be fulfilled in your life and in your family.

May He bring you the greatest measure of contentment,
and the deepest satisfaction that your heart can possibly know through Jesus Christ.

SHALOM!
