Praying God's Word..He's working

Our verse that I have been praying over our family all week and that is written in our kitchen is
2nd Corinthians 3:18 "And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit"

Wowza! God is working on me about this scripture. I came across a book from Max Lucado that rephrases this scripture like this:

"And we, with our unveiled faces reflecting like mirrors the brightness of the Lord, all grow brighter and brighter as we are turned into the image that we reflect; This is the work of the Lord who is Spirit"

Max explains that Paul parallels this verse to the Mt Sinai experience of Moses. This caught my attention as I am neck deep into Moses right now studying the 10 commandments for ASK CBS.

Max says that "after the patriarch beheld the glory of the God, his face reflected the glory of God. 2 Corinthians says "The people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses' face. For his face shone with the glory of God".

He goes on to state "Upon beholding God, Moses could not help but reflect God. The brightness he saw was the brightness he became."

His challenge to us is "As we behold the glory...dare we pray that we, like Moses, will reflect it. Dare we hope to be mirrors in the hands of God, the reflection of the light of God. "

Yes Lord! I dare!! May I reflect You and only You!
