DAY 2: The LORD Make His Face to Shine Upon You
When we behold G-D’s face we can see Him as He truly is—fully divine, yet a person. When we see Him face-to-face we can observe that He has expressions that connote His emotions, thoughts, and judgments. We forget that G-D is a person—and the scriptures are full of illustrations of this fact.
G-D the Father desires a relationship with us. He desires to fellowship and commune and to exchange intimacy. That’s why He went to such lengths pursuing us and sending Yeshua (His only begotten Son) to open the way for us to obtain intimacy! G-D desires a two-way relationship! The precepts and commandments He has given us, in His Law (Torah) are perfect. Through His instruction and the commandments Yeshua shared and clarified, G-D gives us the way to have an intimate relationship with Him.
There are many scriptures in the Tanakh (Old Testament) where we are encouraged to seek the face of YHWH. The very first commandment is, “And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might” (Deuteronomy 6:5). It is our heavenly Father’s desire to have communion with us.
