God’s shining face

Psalm 102:1-2 (JDV)

Psalm 102:1 Yahveh, hear my prayer; let my cry for help come before you.
Psalm 102:2 Do not hide your face from me in my day of distress. Listen closely to me; answer me quickly when I call.

God’s shining face

Fruh writes: “God’s love is unconditional. Is it any wonder that David prayed, “Do not hide Your face from me” (Psalm 102:2)? He could not bear even thinking about life without the shining face of his heavenly Father penetrating his soul. To David, the shining face of God was a symbol of mercy and salvation: “Restore us, O Lord God of hosts; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved!” (Psalm 80:19) (43).
