Psalm 6:6-9 (ESV)
6 I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. 7 My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes. ... 9 The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.
8 You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, LORD, do I seek.”In God's face is comfort and strength. Seeing Him gives His followers courage and hope. And in this Psalm, not only are we assured that we'll see His face with our very own eyes one day in eternity, but that our spiritual eyes will see glimpses of Him here and now -- right in the middle our greatest challenges of faith.
13 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!
14 Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! [ESV]
Ephesians 1:11-12 (HCSB)
11 We have also received an inheritance in Him, predestined according to the purpose of the One who works out everything in agreement with the decision of His will,
12 so that we who had already put our hope in the Messiah might bring praise to His glory.
