And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.
It's blackberry picking time here in the mountains and my 18 month old granddaughter LOVES blackberries. Her dad calls her his little Brer Rabbit. While picking berries, Fern found a tunnel underneath the arches of blackberry canes. She quietly crawled under to sit and eat her fill of the purple delicacies. When her dad found her, her face was a purple smile. She hadn't even noticed the long scratch the briers had made on her arm.
Do you have a favorite place to hide away from the world and be alone with God? Are you able to forget the wounds the world has scratched on your soul? Can others see the joy on your face from spending time with God?
Moses spent time with God.
God used him to not only lead the children of Israel out of Egypt but give them the Ten Commandments. He went up on Mt. Sinai for 40 days to listen to God's instructions. When he came down his face shown. The people knew he had been with God. His face shown so much, they wanted him to veil his face to protect them from the brightness.
Do you have a special place where you can get alone with God?
How has time alone with God changed you?
Can others tell by the smile on your face?
If you haven't found that special place yet, might I suggest a special tree limb or under an arbor? Some folks use a boulder out along a path as their place to sit and pray. What about a sand dune or just tucked away in a cozy corner of your room.
Wherever you hide away, make a habit of visiting often with God.
