As for me, I shall see your face in righteousness;
I shall be satisfied when I awake in your likeness.
Psalm 17:15 (NKJV)
The first 14 verses of this psalm constitute a cry for help and deliverance from his enemies as David pleads with God to, keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings (v8). In the last verse he re-focuses on what really matters and will bring him long-term satisfaction. His ambition was to awake in his likeness; an ambition we can all share.
How beautifully John puts it in his first letter, when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he really is (3:2). What a day of rejoicing THAT will be!
