Are you putting your best #face forward? As a man, do you #wash your face, #shave, or trim a #beard or #mustache, and then #moisturize before starting your day? As a woman, do you #cleanse your face upon arising then try some of the moisturizers, sunscreens, line reducers, makeup, & highlighters! How about the children – we are happy if they have a clean face and a dry nose. We all observe each other facial expressions and appearance, but what about GOD? Does GOD have a face? We are made in His image! “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created male and female” Gen.1:27 So we are all beautifully made in God’s image, but what do we do to disguise that image? This past year has been devastating to so many around the world with disasters, wars, violence and stress. “THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THOSE THAT DO EVIL, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.” Ps.34:16 Now that is a close shave. What face are you projecting to all those around you? Are you in trouble? Ps.103:1,2 “Hear my prayer O LORD, let my cry come unto thee: DO NOT HIDE THY FACE FROM ME in the day when I am in trouble” We reflect what we hold inside just as actors portray the mask of a frown or a smile – so do we! “If we turn unto the LORD, you and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the LORD YOUR GOD IS GRACIOUS AND MERCIFUL AND WILL NOT TURN AWAY HIS FACE FROM YOU, IF YOU RETURN UNTO HIM” 11Chron 30:9 Is God living inside you? “Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but the one that trusts in the LORD, MERCY SHALL COMPASS HIM. Ps.32:10 Let GOD PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE.
