Behold His Face!

I found a verse that I hadn't noticed before.

"For the Lord is righteous.
He loves righteousness.
The upright will behold his face."

Psalm 11:7
The whole psalm is a reminder "to whom do I take refuge?"
The answer being the Lord

What is the Lord like.
What is He?
He is righteous.  All will be made right.  That is who He is.  There is no other refuge.

What is the heart of God?
He loves righteousness. 
He loves it.
His heart is set on what is right.

Now for the awesome cream.
The upright will behold his face!
We who are upright!
We who take refuge in him.
We will behold his face!
Here it doesn't mention his glory, his strength, his power to destroy our enemies, nor his mercy for us as we trust in him, nor his lovingkindness...
But look and see how intimate.
Here he says we will behold his face!  His face!
Oh to look on him, to behold his face!
To see his eyes looking into my heart, to enjoy the grin on his face, to behold his person!
The upright will behold his face!
To gaze on the love of my soul.
He has made me upright.  He says it will happen.  I believe it!
I long to behold his face.  I worship you Father.  I long to behold your face. 
Come Lord Jesus.
