Psalm 80:19 – Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!  Let your face shine, that we may be saved!


This is the third time within this Psalm that Asaph cries out to God with this same request.  Asaph recalls what God has done to rescue Israel in the past. Now he is praying for God to intervene so they can see His hand at work and save His people.


God is in the restoration business.  We are able to see what God has done in the past and have hope for the future but sometimes can’t understand why we are in the current situation we find ourselves.  God teaches us, corrects us and rescues us in His time so we can see our dependence on Him.



Thank you for your salvation through Jesus.  Let me seek you always to see your hand at work and face shining to draw my near to you no matter what I am facing.
