“Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.” Psalm 80:3
We want revival to happen again; and it is made possible by us turning of our hearts to God, and God also shining forth towards us. Malachi 3:7 says, “Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.” In those two things combined we should able to see true revival happening again.
So your prayer today is God give ear, turn us again, “and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.” Psalm 80:7. He is our Shepherd; It is God who leads us like a flock. He feeds us, watches over us, defends us, redeems us, cures us, washes us, drives us and He carries us in His bosom. He does all the offices of a good shepherd for us.
One thing you always should remember, we’re God’s own people, we’re His planting – His vine. If we’re His vine, then we also should bear more fruit for Him, lest we be burnt with fire.
However, He brought us out of Egypt, prepared room for us, and planted us, “and didst cause it [us] to take deep root, and it filled the land” Psalm 80:9. “Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.” Psalm 80:8.
And our prayer/ your prayer today is, “Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine” again. Psalm 80:14. “Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.” Psalm 80:17
When God does shine forth; darkness and gloom vanishes, and He is magnified. “So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.” Psalm 80:18
