Psalm 67:1-2 (JDV)
Psalm 67:1 May God show favor to us and empower us; may he make his face shine upon us. Selah.
Psalm 67:2 – so that your way may be known on the land, your salvation among all nations.
It begins with only a smile — but a smile from the right person. The psalmist posits a scenario that begins with God shining the light of his smile upon the land. That smile produces a harvest, which produces praise, which leads to the respect of the surrounding nations, who learn to fear God and walk in his ways.
What a concept. Salvation from a smile.
Lord, smile on us!
