Reflect the Father

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:18, LSB

After spending time in the presence of God, Moses’ face shone, and it scared the people. For that reason, Moses veiled his face after his time with God. As followers of Christ, the more we are in the presence of our Lord in our time of worship, prayer, and our time in the Word, we shine in a way that may disturb some. God changes His chosen. I remember when the Holy Spirit ignited something in my spirit that led me to seminary, I began to notice things that I hadn’t noticed before. At the time, I was working in a very dark place, but I did not realize it. Prior to my spiritual awakening, I had thought most of my coworkers at the time were pretty decent, and I enjoyed my time with them.  Once my eyes were opened, they didn’t feel very comfortable around me, and I didn’t feel very comfortable around them. Not everyone has such a dramatic awakening, but when the Lord fully awakens your spirit, it will be noticed. You may lose friendships, and family relationships may become more difficult. As God awakens our hearts and minds fully, the world appears different, and we may feel alone, but when we walk with our Lord Jesus Christ, we are never truly alone.

Let us pray. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, your dear Son, that you have kept me this night from all harm and danger, and I ask you to protect me this day also from sin and every evil, that in all I do today, I may please you. For into your hands, I commend myself, my body and soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel watch over me, that the wicked foe have no power over me. Amen.
