Just One Look

Psalm 80:3, 7, 19   Restore us, O God; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved!

Back in the late 70’s, Linda Ronstadt wrote and sang the hit “Just One Look, That’s All It Took”.  I’ve heard of and experienced “love at first sight”!  There’s nothing quite like it.

Three times in this Psalm we read a similar chorus, soliciting God’s face to shine.   When the Lord’s countenance shines on us, everything else pales. When He shines His face, salvation is seen, healing and deliverance are manifested, joy is expressed and hope revived are among many that could be stated.

Graham Kendrick penned the words “Shine Jesus Shine”.  May we echo with myriads of angelic hosts, saints of all ages Asaph and Graham, “Lord the light of your love is shining, in the midst of your darkness shining Jesus light of the world shine upon us set us free by the truth you now bring us and SHINE JESUS SHINE!
