Is YHVH’s face shining on you?

Deuteronomy 31:18, And I will conceal my face. YHVH making his face to shine upon his people (Num 6:25; Ps 80:3, 19) or conversely concealing or turning his face away from his people is a Hebraism meaning “to be in the favor or disfavor of YHVH.” He said that he would hide his face from those who disobey him and do evil (Deut 31:17, 18; 32:20; Ps 132:10; Ezek 7:22; 39:29.) 

Are your prayers being answered? Or do you sense that the heavens are brass (a symbol of judgment)? 

If things are not going well for you in your life, perhaps you need to search out those areas in your life where evil still exists. Ask him to reveal them to you. Then repent and change and bring your life back into alignment with YHVH’s Word.

  1. Totally agree that we need to get rid of sin from our lives; and scripture tells us that ‘the prayer of a righteous man achieves much’ (James 5:16).
    Just like to add that YHVH’s timing often is different from ours and sometimes, prayers aren’t answered in the time span we expect them to, or we need some trials for our character formation, or we need to repent for sins from ancestors or from our nation or we need to pray for a curse being removed from our family. Even the prophet Havakuk was complaining to Elohim for allowing the righteous being oppressed and mistreated.
    However, Havakuk came to his senses and realized that Elohim had his reasons and he decided to rejoice in Adonai , no matter what was going on around him.
