Psalm 67: 1, 2 God be merciful to us and bless us, And cause His face to shine upon us, Selah That Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.
God desires to bless His children, His people! That’s His heart and passion. Yes it is even His purpose, to bless you abundantly.
Any parent takes great joy in blessing their child and the excitement, comfort and knowledge that they are favored by Momma and Papa. There is also great joy in knowing the blessing will bring relief from distress and the peace that result from many blessings. Yet God’s joy includes all of those but it goes way beyond.
God’s wants to bless because He wants His love to be revealed at a global level, “among all nations”. The Psalmist had a revelation of the Great Commission! He wants to bless you, more than you can realize; but there’s a higher purpose than our personal joy and comfort. He desires to bless so that the “nations” can know Him and His love.
God wants to bless you so the Great Commission can be fulfilled!
