After Moses spent time with God in the renewal of the covenant and even subsequently after that, something very unique happened: his face shone brightly. I’m not sure exactly how brightly it shone, but apparently it was bright enough that people were fairly freaked out about it. Moses, not wanting to give anyone too bad of a fright, put a veil over his face. As I was reading this account, it really struck me that, when we spend time with the Lord, a similar thing should take place. I don’t mean that we should be frightening people with glowing faces, but our countenance should be different, and people should know that we have spent time with Him. Our time spent with the Lord should change us, and if people don’t see that change, then we may not be allowing Him to work in our hearts. Do people notice a change in your life from having spent time with the Lord?
