This morning while I was sitting quietly before the Lord, out cat Pixel came to sit in my lap. She would sit for a little while and delight in being there. Then up she would go to pull a tissue out of the box or check out an African violet, then back to my lap. I enjoyed her being in my lap and I also delighted in her curiosity as she explored our little world inside our home.
Then my eyes were opened to see that as she was in my lap, so I was in the lap of God. I was being a delight to God as I just rested there. As my mind wandered about I think God also loved my curiosity and exploration of His created world.
God allowed me in that moment to share His Feelings that He had through my own feelings about our cat Pixel. In what ways is God showing you His heart and feelings today?
It was early and walking toward the sun I had to shield my eyes from the brightness of the rising sun. Then, turning around to return home, I walked with my back to the sun and I saw beautiful shadows of trees and bushes and much more of God’s creative Hand.
Then it cam to me! In Exodus 33:18-23 Moses wants to see God’s Glory. But God replied that if Moses were to see God’s face he would die. So God arranged for a more ‘indirect’ view. I was blinded by the sun’s light when I looked toward it. But looking from a different perspective I saw Go’s hand in the shadows. That’s it! If we look carefully we will see the ‘Silhouette of God” all around us. In love God, for the time being, limits what we see. But the time will come when “We shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is.” (1 John 3:2)
