He looked the part

“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord.”  Exodus 34:29.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Exodus 33-34, Psalm 16, and Acts 9.

Moses had been with God and it showed.

Moses didn’t even realize that his appearance was different.  Those in his midst did.

Certainly lessons for me are in this passage.

If I am spending time with God, it will show itself in my appearance and in my behavior.

If I am spending time with God, I will not have to direct people’s attention to it…….they’ll see/hear it.

My thoughts/words/behavior reveal my relationship to God.  I can make claims, or even imagine things, but the proof will be revealed in those three things.

And how called out am I!  I write often of rightly representing God.  How am I doing at it?  My thoughts/words/behavior will answer that question.

I have no need to call attention directly, or indirectly, to my godliness.  It will be noticeable to those in my midst without my “help.”

“Lord, fill me with You.  Overwhelm me.  Let me not escape from the reality that, if You aren’t controlling me then Satan is.  I want You in control of every part of my life.  I surrender it all to You.  Forgive me for drifting away from Your guidance.  Forgive me for forgetting that every good thing I have comes from You AND to You I must express my thanks.  I love You, Father.”

What do your thoughts/words/behavior reveal about you?
