People are consumed with their bodies and how they look. But the happiness of the believer is different. We are the children of a future world, and our portion is twofold. We have the presence of God while here on earth, and we have His likeness for eternity. Here we see the Lord’s face through righteousness and we are made righteous through Christ Jesus.
What a joy we will have as we see the face of God who reconciled us with the Glory of the face of Jesus Christ and changed our world into Heaven. When we awake with His likeness, it will be the heaven of heavens!
We will not only see Him, but we shall change into the picture that we are beholding. We shall sleep for a second and wake to find that we have changed to a mirror that reflects the beauty of our Lord!
Faith looks to God through hope, but the heart anticipates the picture of Jesus and keeps it in its deepest place until the personality of Jesus is stamped onto the soul. And in this we are all satisfied. David spoke these verses in complete trust, and we are offered this as a promise from the Lord through the Holy Spirit.
I believe in Him and I expect this to happen. Thank you Lord for doing this to me!
