the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:26 NIV
When you want to talk to someone, you want to face them. You don’t want to talk to their back. To be fully engaged in a conversation, you need to be face-to-face. God wants to be engaged face-to-face with us. Because of sin, we can’t be physically in His presence. Yet, He does turn His face towards us spiritually. It gives us peace knowing He is by our side.
