“For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” – 2 Corinthians 4:6
Hey, friends! I hope that you and your families are well. Thank you for your continued support and show of love in reading my blog. I appreciate it, and I appreciate you!
In Exodus chapter 34, we encounter Moses at Mount Sinai receiving the two tablets of the Ten Commandments again. The Scripture explains that “He was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights, he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote in the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments” (Exodus 34:28).
Moses spent a considerable amount of time with God, and He fasted – focusing all his attention and energy on the Lord. He was with God as He wrote His covenant on the two stone tablets.
“Now it was so, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the Testimony were in Moses’ hand when he came down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone while he talked with Him.” – Exodus 34:29
When Moses came down from the mountain, his face shined, so much so that the people, and even Aaron his brother, were afraid to go near him (Exodus 34:30). Moses’ face was shining so bright that he had to put a veil on his face (Exodus 34:33).
The lesson for us from Moses and this account is that when we spend time with God and with His word, His glory will manifest in our lives, and people will notice a difference. Others will change the way they behave around us because the Lord’s glory will shine so bright in our lives that they won’t know what else to do.
When we dedicate time to the Lord and studying the Bible, it will be evident to others around us, just like with Moses. God’s Word will prick our hearts, it’ll convict us, and it will change us.
Have you spent time with the Lord? It’ll show up in your life one a way or another. Let’s be diligent to devote our time and energy to the Lord, so that His glory will shine in our lives like it did with Moses.
May God bless you and keep you safe, my friends.
