Psalms 34:5 NLT
"Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces."
Often as leaders we need to be reminded where our help comes from. God is our help. You know that.
But have you thought lately about what getting help from God does to you? It changes the way people see you. Sometimes it changes our actions before others. It even changes the expression on our faces or the attitude we have.
Having those things often on our faces, in our actions and all over our attitudes may simply be the testimony that a new person sees God through. That's our call -- to demonstrate his love -- that means to let others see God, see how He deals with us and to experience how He loves.
Start with this thought -- when you let God love you, you let others see the authenticity of God's love. I try to help others experience God's love, but I recognize that at times it comes at my expense. Myself or my family may miss seeing God's love because I don't let Him love me since I'm so intent on someone else being loved. Does that make sense?
Spend some time allowing God to love you today. It's not new. It is needed. It may change your day and change someone else's life.
