But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ. 1 Cor. 15:57
The other day I came across an interesting story in Exodus 34. The section heading reads, “The Shining Face of Moses.” When Moses came down from being in the presence of God, his face was literally producing light. The people couldn’t look at him because his face was so bright! Everybody knew he had been in God’s presence, because a person’s face doesn’t normally do that. And that’s the kind of God we serve. Stuff we don’t or can’t normally do, HE DOES through us. So if you feel down, frustrated, overwhelmed, anxious, guilty or afraid - don’t worry! You don’t have to produce the shine! God does that! If you feel peaceful, fulfilled, optimistic, blessed and confident - turn it on even more! God is the giver of all good things, and He’s your Daddy! There’s another story where a guy’s face was shining; It’s Stephen in Acts 6… just before he’s stoned to death. But Stephen wasn’t angry. In fact, he said, “forgive them,” concerning his killers. That’s not normal. There’s no way we can live the perfect Christian life in our own strength, or with our own grit and determination. He will produce fruit THROUGH us. We don’t produce it, we allow Him to do it as we surrender to Him! So the pressure is off. Our task is to connect with our loving Father; He will do the rest!
