OUR GRACIOUS GOD
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Selah Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him! —Psalm 67
God has been so gracious toward us. May He be pleased to be even more gracious to us even though we could never deserve it. Oh, may this be the case so that His Name may be known on the earth and His salvation among all nations. We know that this is His desire because He has commanded us to be witnesses of His “to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8) and to “make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). This is all by His grace.
What a joy it is to let His way “be known on earth, (His) saving power among all nations.” Oh, that we may be faithful in doing so that “all the peoples praise you! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth.” Yes, may this be the case and may I serve You in the part You desire of me to accomplish Your desires on this earth.
Let all people from all nations praise Your Holy Name. You have blessed us by the increase of the earth. Without You this would be impossible. Oh Yes, “God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him!” May this be so!
Dear Father You are so good to us. It is truly astounding when I consider the little I know You do on this earth every day. It is also amazing as I consider this for my life-time and for all time. Wow… You are good to us, so good to us. May I give thanks and praise in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViyhcNPma18
