Psalm 105:4 “Seek the LORD and HIS strength; Seek HIS face continually!”
By the Light of HIS Face!
The powers of darkness slither through symbols,
entwining themselves as though centers of Life.
As the snake on the staff was uplifted by Moses,
its usage — prolonged — then became idolized.
Such icons and images steal
just as faith in ourselves…or
Therefore! With self made “serpents“, we needlessly struggle,
distracted! Indeed, thus we foolishly wrestle!
So set your affections above,
discarding each image then “drawn” in your thoughts!
Focus on HIS WORD solely where Perfect Light shines
and most clearly describes…the face of our GOD!
As HIServant gazing expectantly into HIS WORD and HIS face,
Devotional: Numbers 6:25-26 “The LORD make HIS face shine on you, and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up HIS countenance on you, and give you peace.”
Only in HIS written and holy inscribed WORD do we find HIS perfect image. It isn’t found in a void or vacuum outside of the Bible. It isn’t clearly and wholly found in our CHRISTian activities done in HIS NAME.
Just the WORD is perfect as HE is. So to have the correct view of HIM, we must be diligently seeking HIM in HIS Holy Scriptures!
Psalm 80:19 “O LORD GOD of hosts, restore us; Cause YOUR face to shine upon us, and we will be saved!”
What a beautiful cry of the Psalmist’s heart and one which we also echo with tears of expectation! We KNOW our restoration comes from HIM and when HIS face shines upon us, we feel HIS wondrous favor and blessing, yes?
Psalm 67:1 “(May) GOD be gracious to us and bless us, and cause HIS face to shine upon us — Selah!”
So we petition THEE, LORD JESUS! Be gracious and bless us according to THY perfect will and cause YOUR face to again shine upon our hearts even now! Amen and amen!
