The Face of A Man

Man Collage

Would you recognize God if He was staring you in the face?  How does He look?  Is He the man on all the pictures with the light skinned complexion and blond hair?  Or is He the man you pass by everyday with a buggy and torn clothing?  The truth of the matter is that we have no idea what God looks like.  Our physical eyes cannot see such beauty and if we could we would probably go blind because our natural ability isn’t equipped to receive that much glory at once.  Sometimes it can be difficult trying to serve what you cannot see however, we must remind ourselves of how irrelevant that thought really is.  For instance, we can’t see the devil yet we hear him telling us to do things we really don’t want to do daily.  Does that make him nonexistent because he can’t be seen with the natural eye?  Of course not, God is more than enough without us being able to spot Him out in the room.  When His presence is in the midst He can be felt.  A blind man relies on his other senses to direct his path and those senses are stronger to make up for what cannot be seen.  When it comes to our relationship with God we must rely on the Word to help direct our path.  We must nurture our relationship with Him so that our bond is unbreakable.  It doesn’t matter what we see because many times what we see isn’t realistic anyway.  God can have many faces.  He can take an open vessel who is willing to surrender to Him and use that individual for His purpose.  All the while, He can be across town speaking and serving through another individual with a different face.  There is not a certain race, face or physique that God has.  Stop looking at the man in the pulpit as if he is God because he is not, he is simply a messenger who is held to a higher standard.  Who is God?  What does He look like?  That question I cannot answer but what I can do is live my life according  to His word and allow His light to shine through me.  Allow God to use you as well, so that your face may be a reflection of Him.

2 Corinthians 3:18  While we look not at the things which are seen, but the things which are not seen:  For the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

And It Was So

DARKNESS

When God says He’s going to do something, you can rest for sure that it is going to happen.  God is not a man that He should lie, in fact, He can’t lie.  If He said it, then it is so.  In Genesis 1:9, God said “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear” and scriptures says ‘And it was so.’  God can simply speak and things can begin to come together in your life and peace will appear.  The problem is along the way to our promise we get distracted or overwhelmed, tired, emotional, and feel like throwing in the towel.  We must remind ourselves of the word that is over our life and use that as the fuel to our fire to chase after God with everything that we have.  He wants to be worshipped and praised for who He is and I believe if we step outside of ourselves the very area that we desire a breakthrough will be granted to us.  We need to get that in our spirit; It is so, It is so, It is so!  This financial burden can be lifted off of me, it is so.  God can heal my body, it is so.  God can save my family, it is so.  God can save my marriage, it is so.  God can change my attitude, it is so.  God can renew my mind, it is so.  I can recover from the rape, it is so.  I can move past the molestation, it is so.  I can break the generational curse, it is so.  All God has to do is say the word and it shall be done.  But we must continue to praise Him anyway regardlesss of what we are going through.  I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.  My soul shall make her boast, the humble shall hear thereof and be glad. (Psalm 34:1)  This Christian walk is not an easy one but it is well worth it.  God is faithful and if He said it then it is so!

Genesis 1:3  And God said, “Let there be light” and there was light.
