Psalm 80 God, come back! Smile your blessing smile: that will be our salvation. (v.3 MSG)
Do you remember in children’s books how pictures of the sun often sported smiley faces? As a child, I imagined that the sun smiled down on me. Whenever it was overcast for a couple days, I’d wonder where the sun had gone. It was hard for me to understand that just because I couldn’t see the sun didn’t mean that it wasn’t still there smiling down on me.
In life, our circumstances often play tricks on our eyes. We focus on the problems and can’t see that Jesus is right in front of us. He becomes hidden behind the clouds of life and we think that He has gone away. As a child, I finally realized that the sun was still shining even if I couldn’t see it through the overcast sky. That is true for the Son as well; His blessing smile is constantly shining on us.
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light” (Ephesians 5:14).
Esther 4:4-17; Acts 18:1-11; Luke 1:1-4, 3:1-14
Until next time blessings and healing
