"Let the smile of your face shine on us, LORD. 7 You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and wine. 8 I will lie down in peace and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe."
In this age of prosperity and materialism, it is nice to see that God sustains a deep joy for people who have less wealth than others. This is not just "an opiate for the masses"- but a true joy and delight at knowing the God of the universe.
Because of Christ, I do laugh, smile, and walk in peace. Not because of anything I have done- but because of who He is!
