Facing the Son

imageimageThis is ancient Shiloh, which the Israelis excavated right where the Bible says it would be. Funny how that works, huh? They also excavated where the Tabernacle stood. What’s pictured on the right is where the Holy of Holies once stood.
As the Tabernacle opened towards the east, those who worshipped the Lord had to face west with their backs toward the sun. This is the exact opposite direction for those who worshipped idols, who faced the sun.
In other words, one must turn their back on their idols, their drugs of choice, if they want to experience victory with each choice. One must turn their face toward God if they want to come into His presence where security, significance and love are found.
It was totally a kick to actually stand where God lived at one time on this planet! It was an awesome feeling. Yet, I know through the Son, I have everlasting access to the Father. I can stand in His presence no matter where I am on this planet. I can have victory every day if I choose to face the Son and listen to and follow His instructions. It’s not always easy to make this choice. Yet when I do, it always ends up with a smile on my face and peace in my heart.
Let me encourage you to face to the Son, rather than the sun.
