And Then God Will Bless Us

I stumbled upon this Psalm this weekend, and it really came to life for me and struck a chord in light of the state of our nation.  I thought it would be important to share because this inspires me to pray even more urgently for our nation and the world.  It is so amazing how the LORD lays out His truth so plainly.  We need only to search for Him and find Him by searching with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:13).

Psalm 67

"May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us,
that Your ways may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. 

May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise You. 

May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for You rule the
peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth. 

May the peoples praise You, O God; may all the peoples praise You.  

Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.
God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear Him."

Oh how I pray, LORD, that the peoples will praise You!  May all the peoples praise You!  Then the land will yield its harvest.  Then You will bless us, and all will revere You!

May we be faithful in praying for our leaders, our people, and other peoples and their leaders.  May we each seek the LORD and praise Him wholeheartedly.  May we never cease to praise the LORD!  He is so great!

"Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere Him." (Psalm 33:8)

"Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.  Praise the LORD." (Psalm 150:6)
