Seeing the Face of God

“So Jacob called the place Peniel [Face of God],… The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel….” Ever since Aaron, our God-given birthright has been spoken over us, including the words, “The Lord make his face shine upon you.” It is a beaming image, like a mother seeing her infant walk or a father seeing his prodigal while he is still a long way off. So is our Father’s beaming face when he looks upon us; when he sees you.
