His Radiance: My Prayer for You

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The precepts of the LORD are right giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever.

Psalm 19:8-9

I love thinking about the glory of the Lord and what it will be like when we meet him face to face.  We know that it will be all powerful from studying the records of Moses’ encounters in Exodus 34.  Moses had to cover his face after he had met with the Lord because his face was so radiant with God’s glory that the people would be blinded!  That was just the residue!  Wow.  I want that.  I want to be so full of God’s love, wisdom, and power that it radiates from me and out to others for their benefit. If you want this too, this prayer is for you:

Lord, your law is perfect, reviving the soul.  your word is trustworthy, making wise the simple. [Psalm 19:7] You can discern our errors, even when we cannot.  You can show us what is wrong with our thinking or actions even when we really don’t want to ‘see’ them.  Keep us from willful sins; may they not rule over us. May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. [Psalm 19:12-14]

May we understand what it truly means to “fear the LORD”; may it fill us with your power and peace and give us the wisdom we need to act according to your ways.  For you are good and your love endures forever.

Amen.
