In my life I have met a small amount of people that had just a peaceful glow about them. Before they even opened their mouth I knew that there was something special about them. As I grew older and wiser in Christ I began to realize how they got that glow about them. It was their love of God and their close knit relationship with Him. I was reminded of those wonderful people that God had placed in my life this week as we read Exodus Chapter 34.
Moses had such a close relationship with God that he actually glowed so brightly that he had to wear a veil over his face when people approached him. Moses was in constant communication with God. He was always seeking God’s directions and he had a desire to do everything that God wanted to the letter. Because of this in verses 6-8 God actually allowed Moses to see a glimpse of His back. Oh I could only imagine how Moses felt in that moment. I imagine that he was taken back, that he was humbled and that above all he was filled with joy.
the people of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face was shining. And Moses would put the veil over his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
Because of his relationship with God his inter and outer appearance glowed. What a huge difference it is from the man we saw when we first started reading Exodus. Moses had learned to trust in God and had become a leader to God’s chosen people even though in the beginning he felt unworthy.
God wants the same affect on us
As Christians we are called to be the light in a dark world.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16
We are suppose to be noticed by the world as something different in a world full of sin.
For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light Ephesians 5:8
That is because we are different. We are the hands and the feet of God. Our actions, our words and our lives help show that our God is King and that our God is powerful.
So how do we get that glow?
- We get that glow of God by truly working toward building our relationship with Him. This takes more than just speed reading though our devotions in the mornings. It means that we have to take time to meditate on God’s Word to let it soak in.
- To get that glow we must develop an amazing prayer life. Simple quick prayer are good but a deep in depth full blown conversation with God is so much better. Praise Him and seek His wisdom. Make sure that not only are you talking to God but that you are listening to Him as well.
- Getting that glow also means that you must walk closely with God. It does no good to study God’s Word and to carry on amazing conversations with God if you are not willing to actually put everything that He has revealed to you into action. This means that you are trusting God and God’s ways.
Now I will admit that I don’t have my God glow yet, but I am working on it. My goal is that I will glow so brightly for God that people will be able to see His amazing power through me. How about you, how is your God glow?
