ďMay God be merciful and bless us. May His face shine with favor upon us.Ē
Psalm 67: 1 NLT
The sun Ė a caulderin of plasmic energy Ė flashes solar power into the cosmic universe. Into this universe, light travels and reflects off the moon and stars by night. Without this reflective light mankind walks in darkness. Godís favor towards all nature and mankind is the sun. Without the sunís reflective light, all life on earth parishes. Plants need light for growth. Reflective light warms our bodies and tans our skin. We need sunlight.
In this world of dwindling resources and high-energy bills, we need an alternate source of power. Every day this source shines into our world. Solar power is free to all. If you have a solar panel you receive this energy.
This verse mentions the favor of God and His mercy. In the spiritual world, there is another sun called Jesus. He is Godís favor to those who walk in darkness. He warms the coldness of a sinful heart and renews life within a dead soul. Spiritual light needs a receptacle to reflect live giving energy to the spiritual universe. God needs a face to shine into the darkness.
God made the face of man to reflect spiritual solar energy. Godís face shines with love, mercy, and grace. He is a consuming fire. Reflective light bounding off a mirror ignites dry wood or dead grass. Do you know someone who is dead spiritually? Than turn your face towards Jesus. Do you know someone who needs a spark to relight his or her spiritual fire? Turn your face towards Jesus. God needs your face.
Each morning turn your face in prayer towards Jesus and ask for Godís favor. In return your neighbor, family, and enemies receive the reflective light from Godís merciful face.
