The upright shall behold his face. Psalm 11:7
David is saying, “How can you say, ‘Flee like a bird’? God is on His throne! And whatever happens, I’m going to behold His face!”
There’s a true story of a man by the name of William Montague Dyke, who at ten years old was blinded in an accident. While in college, William fell in love with the daughter of a high-ranking British naval officer and they were engaged.
Shortly before the wedding, William had eye surgery to restore his sight. If it failed, William would remain blind for the rest of his life. So because the wedding was only a short time away, William insisted on keeping the bandages on until the day of the wedding. If the surgery was successful, he wanted the first person he saw to be his new bride.
On her wedding day, the bride walked down the aisle, and when she arrived at the front, the surgeon whipped out a big pair of scissors and cut the bandages from William’s eyes. Imagine the tension! The congregation held their breath, waiting to find out if William could see the woman who stood before him. As he stood face to face with his bride to be, William’s words echoed throughout the cathedral, “You are more beautiful than I ever imagined.”
Friend, one day you are going to behold the Lord’s face. Having walked by faith, one day the bandages that cover our eyes will be removed. The upright shall behold His face! And when you see His glory it will be greater than you ever imagined.
Let this sink in—when you see Jesus face-to-face, He will be more glorious than your highest and best thoughts about Him.
