TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Like moths to a flame, people are attracted to My presence in your life. I’m so pleased when you carry My presence wherever you go. Be filled with my Spirit and testify of My love and redemption.
PUT A BAG OVER IT!
When the Bible says to let your light shine before all men, it ain’t kidding! Moses is the poster child for this verse. Check this out…
“Now it was so, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the Testimony were in Moses’ hand when he came down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone while he talked with Him.” – Exodus 34:29
When brother Moses came down from the mountain of God, his face glowed in the dark! And here’s the deal: Moses never saw it on himself. Everybody else saw it on him, but Moses couldn’t see his own radiance from being in God’s presence.
He glowed so much, they asked him to put a bag over his head. That is in the Bible. Read it! Exodus 34:30 says his own brother was afraid of Moses’ shine.
Can I tell you something? God’s not impressed with people who want you to put a bag over your head because you look too much like Jesus and they just can’t be comfortable around you. The people of God need to stop making it taboo for you to have an extraordinary walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Why is it offensive to them? Because of this: How you live in private manifests in public. You don’t think they can see it – you don’t see it, but people can see what you’re like behind closed doors, and they don’t like seeing people who are not like them.
They’re in the shallow end of the Jesus pool and they want company. Run from these people! They want to hold you back so they can feel comfortable.
Moses was surrounded by people who wanted to be comfortable and keep God at a distance. Not Moses. God talked to him as one talks to a friend – in person. Because of this, all through Moses’ life, God’s approval and favor showed up on his skin. That blows my mind!
Do you want to look like Jesus? Do you want His favor and blessing to shine like a beacon from your life? Those in darkness are attracted to the light. Don’t put it under a bag for anybody!
