Exodus 34:29 ” When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord.”

It tells us that the face of Moses was so brilliant that the people couldn’t gaze intently at him…for after speaking to God,  glory covered his face. (II Corinthians 3:7-13)  This happened to Jesus also on the Mount of Transfiguration when His face shone like the sun. (Matthew 17:2)  There’s something about being in the presence of God that changes us, for it says in Psalm 34:5, “Those who look to Him are radiant.”   Isaiah also spoke of this when he wrote, “Arise, shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1)  Spending time with God in His word will change your countenance from the inside out.  Harsh rigid lines will soften, and smiles will replace scowls as God’s glory radiates from within.
