“As for me, I shall see Your face in righteousness; I will be [fully] satisfied when I awake [to find myself] seeing Your likeness.” (Psalms 17: 15, Amplified Bible)
Isn’t it wonderful to wake up to a day feeling excited, happy, grateful? Does it sometimes seem like those days are not as plentiful as we’d like?
Let’s see the value of waking in the way that the psalmist expresses here. We can awake to the thought of God, seeing His face—His loving and faithful and approving countenance—before us. We can choose to turn toward Truth and Life and Love when we begin our day, rather than to let the mortal mind set an agenda, one that is uncertain, troubling, or dull.
We have a choice in our days and in moments of our life to wake up to what is true. It is seeing that in God’s face is our very own selfhood. We are the reflection of His qualities and His contentment. We are His image and likeness. Our satisfaction does not come from being persons that have a certain goal to hit, a personality or body that is ideal according to a biased human view, a presentation of perfection as the world might measure it.
Our satisfaction is awakening to see God and to recognize that we are just like Him. We are His own idea expressed, and He is pleased in us, in this moment, in every moment, because we are what He saw fit to make.
Let’s see God’s face rightly. See His smile upon you, His loving tender regard for who you really are, and His assurance that today is your day, one full of the very light that is the radiance of you!
