He Is Smiling at You
You can read a lot from people’s faces, can’t you? Without ever hearing a word, you can sense irritation, pleasure, doubt, worry, and fear. You can sense condemnation too. You can tell if someone is angry with you before a word is said. How good are you at forgiving people who have done you wrong? Not so hot? Do you hold grudges sometimes?
Sometimes we assume that that’s how God looks at us—never really forgiving completely, still angry, still remembering our moral failures. If we try to imagine His face, we fear that He is frowning.
Our God eagerly desires a loving relationship with all of His lost and estranged children. That’s why He arranged for our wrongs to be placed on the head of an innocent substitute, His own Son. That’s why He instructed Moses to speak words of kindness to the believers and bless them like this: “The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you” (Numbers 6:25).
Visualize God’s face right now. Visualize him smiling at you. He likes you, you know.
