I Shall Be Satisfied When I Awake in Your Likeness

Psalm 17:15  

As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.

David contrasted his eternal hope with the focus of most people on temporary physical success in this world (verse 14). Instead of wealth and a full belly, David’s desire was to one day see God face to face, to awake in the very glorified likeness of God.

The apostle John also described this hope in 1 John 3:2: “We know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
