Daily D – Psalm 67:1-2

by | Mar 8, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

May God be gracious to us and bless us; may he make his face shine upon us so that your way may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
PSALM 67:1-2 (CSB)

_____________________________________________________________________________

 

Numbers 6:24-26 is the blessing the priests were to speak over Israel:

May the LORD bless you and protect you;
may the LORD make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
may the LORD look with favor on you
and give you peace.

These texts are two of a kind. They pronounce and invoke God’s blessing. 

Our Father in heaven leads with love. His every thought and action is motivated and animated by his faithful and enduring love (Psalm 136). God is love (1 John 4:8).

What is his disposition toward you on Monday mornings when you played too hard and stayed up too late on Sunday? 

* Grace
* Blessing
* Favor
* Salvation

God smiles on you. His plans for you are for your well-being, for a special future, and for an enduring hope (Jeremiah 29:11). 

You can live courageously and confidently as you walk with God into a new day and a new week. 

You can live with assurance that you are so deeply loved that no sin could separate you from God’s grace and forgiveness when you humbly return to him. 

You can know for certain that he smiles when you lead with love as he leads with love. 

You can know the success of an entirely different order and magnitude when you walk before God in faith and with faithful service to everyone you meet. 

What do you want more of or less of that honors God and serves others?

What’s stopping you?

What is your best next step of faithful living today?

I will live the confident assurance of God’s grace, blessing, and smile.

Our Father, thank you that you do not withhold your love and approval until we finally get things right. Instead, you give us your love and approval up front and empower us to live lives you can smile upon. We turn to you today to align and attune our hearts and minds so that we can indeed not only live lives you can smile upon but also to live lives that bring smiles to others. Amen.

Job 40:6-14

6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm:

7 “Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.

8 “Would you discredit my justice?
Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
9 Do you have an arm like God’s,
and can your voice thunder like his?
10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor,
and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.
11 Unleash the fury of your wrath,
look at all who are proud and bring them low,
12 look at all who are proud and humble them,
crush the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them all in the dust together;
shroud their faces in the grave.
14 Then I myself will admit to you
that your own right hand can save you

Daily D – Job 32:1-5

Job 29:21-25 21 “People listened to me expectantly,
waiting in silence for my counsel.
22 After I had spoken, they spoke no more;
my words fell gently on their ears.
23 They waited for me as for showers
and drank in my words as the spring rain.
24 When I smiled at them, they scarcely believed it;
the light of my face was precious to them.
25 I chose the way for them and sat as their chief;
I dwelt as a king among his troops;
I was like one who comforts mourners.
