This morning I was reading Exodus 34. The beginning of the chapter is Moses going up to replace the stone tablets that he broke when he came down last time and saw the Israelites with their golden calf. Then it goes on with the LORD's covenant which includes a bunch of laws, and then we get to the end of it, where it says;
"29 When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord. 30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him. 31 But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community came back to him, and he spoke to them. 32 Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai.
33 When Moses finished speaking to them, he put a veil over his face. 34 But whenever he entered the Lord’s presence to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out. And when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, 35 they saw that his face was radiant. Then Moses would put the veil back over his face until he went in to speak with the Lord."

And it occurred to me after, when I was praying, that shouldn't we become radiant too? Maybe not having a physically radiant face, glowing skin, but essentially, our souls. When we pray and seek the face of God, when we spend time with Him in His word, if we are truly doing that, truly seeking Him with our whole hearts (and therefore we will find Him), then shouldn't we radiate? I know I want to! 


  1. Love this! That our hearts would be glowing from our time with Jesus!

  2. isn't that just a super cool idea? :) thanks for your kind words Elizabeth!

  3. I do too, Emma! Let's continue to take delight in Him daily so that our radiance will surface and draw others to Him. Happy Friday :)
