And I – in righteousness I shall see your face;
when I awake I shall be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

Psalm 17:15

The first 14 verses of this psalm of David are a cry to the Lord for help and protection and deliverance from his enemies. We can all empathise with David’s situation. There are times when we echo David’s plea and ask the Lord to keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings (v8).
In contrast, the psalm ends with David looking into himself and proclaiming his own personal ambition (as for me). Again, it’s something we can all relate to. To see his face and be satisfied with seeing his likeness – now that IS something to look forward to!
