A Closer Look

One of the biggest giveaways in pulling a prank is your facial expression. Remaining composed or keeping a ‘poker face’ as we call it, isn’t necessarily easy. The reason being is that there is a direct correlation between your emotions and your facial expression.


In the 35th Psalm David highlights this in the evidence of looking to God. He says in verse 5, “those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” What David is getting at is that when someone has been liberated, when they’re no longer enslaved, it should be as if they’re glowing. 


What’s transpired isn’t just private, but it’s also public. When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, it says that he was radiant. He had just spent 40 days with God. And I think what we need to ask ourselves is, if those around us don’t notice a difference in our lives, have we truly experienced God? 


Of course, their hearts could be so darkened that they couldn’t see the light, but let’s remember it’s God who gave a reason for a veil and only in Jesus is that taken away.
