We can learn so much from how our dogs relate to us and to other things in their environment.
Arwen will grouse and grouse for affection and when she starts getting it, she doesn’t want it to stop.
As Christians, we can learn from this. If we were so focused on Jesus like Dudley is with the ball, we would wait ’til Hell froze over for Jesus to move if that’s what it took. If we loved the affection of our God like Arwen loves the affection of her people, then we would have no issue nudging God for it. He says to come boldly to the throne of grace which is something we have direct access to. There we receive help when we need it most, which is every second of every day.
As a man of faith, Moses wanted what we have now, even though he got to speak with God face to face as a friend. As a man of faith, I want what I have which is being filled with God (Holy Spirit) as well as what Moses had. Moses looked forward to the destruction of the Curse but had partial fulfillment of what was available now. Now that we are on the other side of the Cross from the Law and the Curse, we have the unfettered ability to speak with God face to face and be filled with the Holy Spirit like Jesus modeled for us; unhindered. Because of that unhindered filling, there is no need for God to show us his back as His glory passes by; we get to see His face like Jesus did on a daily basis.
God, show us Your glory!
