“May God look you full in the face and make you prosper.”
Numbers 6:26 MSG
The word for “prosper” here in the original Hebrew is “shalom.”
It has become one of my favorite words.
At its core, “Shalom” means the type of wholeness that comes after being broken.
I think that the most difficult moment to look God full in the face is when you are broken.
When you have failed or fallen or lay wounded at another’s hand.
That is exactly when you need Him the most.
That is when you need to see the face of God and how He sees you.
That is when you need to see His love, mercy and grace as He gazes at you.
You need to know that when He looks you full in the face, He is looking at someone He loves, believes in and will put back together through the power of His love.
May God look you full in the face and make you prosper.
