Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3: 12-18
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflectthe Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory
Lord, unveil my face. Wipe away all the hidden junk that I smear on my face, pretending to be something I am not. Clean the dust from the corners of my heart.
“Ever-increasing glory” – not a one shot deal, is it Lord? Your transformation within my heart occurs one day, one step at a time. Slowly over time, my veil of false self peels away and I am able to reflect your glory.
Like a mirror coated with steam after a hot shower, You wipe the glass so Your light shines through.
I ask you, Lord to reveal to me what keeps me from You. I ask you to tear off my blinders and masks. Help me let go of habits and patterns that keep my veil snug.
You are powerful and forgiving. You are creator love. I turn my heart and my face towards You knowing you will keep your promise to continue the work you have begun in me.
Please remove my veil so You shine through.
“Not a one shot deal,” is something I tend to forget. I want it all, NOW. Shine on, dear Jeanie.
