God’s Smile

Tap on the image for a meditation-video on Psalm 80.

Picture what would happen if a dearly loved person from your past were suddenly to stand before you right now, face lit in a broad, open smile. Taste the joy and the jolting change of your mood. The Lord at this very moment is smiling at you with the greatest love there is. When God smiles, nothing remains the same. The Holy Spirit engrafts you onto the vine, which is Jesus.

As corks holding up a net, so does the threefold repetition of this verse lift God’s people. “Restore” (in Hebrew: shuwb), means a plea for God to make things go back to the way they were when God’s presence and power were freshly felt by the people. May this psalm clear the space between you and the Lord, so you can see God’s smile.
