“As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness;
when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness.” Pondering Psalms 17:15
My take: David shares with us that we will see God when we align ourselves to Him. When we resonate to the harmony of His will with right thinking, with rightousness. Due to sin, there is no way to do this all alone; thus Christ’s wonderful work on the Cross and leaving us with the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. Yet still, we must work out our sanctification. We are not ‘there’ yet due to the shackles of our flesh and bars of sin. We must be content with God’s all too distant personal presense, exercise our faith, and like David ‘be satisfied with Your likeness’.
Better one days in His courts than a thousand elsewhere, right?
