Faces

Are you two faced? Perhaps we all are at times. But God made you four faced!!

Ezekiel 1:10
Each had a human face in the front, the face of a lion on the right side, the face of an ox on the left side, and the face of an eagle at the back.

The four faces represent different things.

Man – who we are and what we do. This is the manifested presence of ourselves.

Lion – denoted by strength and courage. Who we are again!

Ox – represents quiet determination, hard work and resilience to accomplish that which is set out before it. It’s about fruitfulness.

Eagle – we’re made to soar above the trials and winds of challenge. The eagle speaks of renewal, waiting on God and rising above all things. In doing this we also watch our backs!!

Previously we read that the creatures could move in any direction at any one time, as they were led but without turning around. You too can move forward accordingly without turning around yet bearing the side of your personality which is most needed at any particular time.

You are made with the strength of all four faces, but perhaps you favour one over another.

Ask for wisdom today to allow the other aspects of your being to be brought to bear when they are needed. Courage for challenges, determined plodding and hard work in the drudgery that comes with aspects of life, and soaring above the thermals of opposition that seek to destroy you.

You are equipped for all of life that comes your way, but perhaps we could all spend time nurturing the man, the lion, the ox and the eagle within us.
