“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us…” is the prayer of the psalmist. Why does he pray this?
“…SO THAT Your ways may be known on earth, Your salvation among the nations.” (Psalm 67:1-2)
God’s blessings are sent to His people SO THAT the whole earth will know Him and praise Him, and turn to Him for their salvation.
God’s blessings aren’t primarily for my benefit, but for His!
“And God, our God, will bless us. God will bless us, SO THAT all the ends of the earth will fear Him.” (verses 6-7)
Sola Deo gloria—it’s all for His glory!
So, yes, Lord, pour out Your blessings on me again and again SO THAT all people may know You and Your salvation. May all who see Your blessing on me turn to You as their God too!
