Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Psalm 67 is an expression of Israel’s calling to be a kingdom of priests and a light to the nations. It is sometimes referred to as a “missionary psalm.” The writer is concerned that the nations will learn God’s saving way and fear him; thus he calls all the peoples of the earth to acknowledge the sovereignty and bounty of God. The present blessings, after all, are a foretaste of greater blessings to come for those who acknowledge the Lord by faith. The prayer of the psalmist is that God would pour out His rich blessings, not so that they can be heaped up and horded, but so that God’s grace might be channeled to the ends of the earth.
