The scripture for today, November 7, is Psalm 11:7 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
The face of God! How we who believe in God long to see his face. We cannot comprehend it. But we can comprehend this…..
God’s eyes ~ “The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good” (Proverbs 15:1).
God’s mouth ~ “I have put my words in your mouth” (Isaiah 51:16).
God’s nose ~ “The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma….The smoke of the incense together with the prayers of the saints went up before God” (Genesis 8:21; Revelation 8:4).
God’s ears ~ “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.”
Perhaps when we continually watch both good and bad people around us with the same kind of care that God does, perhaps when we speak the words that come out of the mouth of God, perhaps when we send our prayers like sweet incense to God, perhaps when we are attentive to the silent cry of those around us ~ just perhaps, in some way, we are seeing the face of God. Just perhaps.
