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.
