God’s Hope for Your Heart from Psalm 67
GOD WANTS TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF YOU
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face to shine upon us, that Your way may be known on earth, Your saving power among all nations. (Psalm 67:1-2)
The God of the universe has one primary goal above all others: the display of His glory.
Through His works in creation, He displays the glory of His power. Through His offering of redemption through Christ, He displays the glory of His grace. Through His blessings to His children, He displays the glory of His love.
Your life was redeemed and positioned for blessings because God loves you, yes. However, the reasons for His grace go much deeper, and your life has much greater purpose than just passively receiving. God has chosen you to actively display His glory to the rest of humanity!
Let your heart and mind and hands and mouth be devoted to telling and showing the glory of God to the world around you. Let your life be focused on bringing Him glory in all things, and watch what will happen.
Your Heavenly Father will bring all sorts of blessings in to your life so the world will see His glory, because God wants to make an example of you.
