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!
So, let your heart and mind and hands and mouth be devoted to showing and telling the glory of God to the world around you. Focus your life on bringing Him glory in all things, and watch as your Heavenly Father brings all sorts of blessings into your life to show His glory to the world.
As you focus on His glory, you’ll be able to see opportunity in whatever circumstances come your way. As you do, you’ll find you can always have hope because of this truth: God wants to make an example of you.
