I think rejoicing comes out of beholding God’s joyfulness over us, that the blessing of God on your life is that He makes His face shine towards you. That is an incredibly beautiful poetic, creative way of saying that God loves to grin in your direction. He makes His face beam towards you, makes His face shine, that He lifts up the light of His countenance, which is a fabulous way of describing a smile with a twinkle. God’s eyes are twinkling towards you partly because you are a constant source of amusement to Him, but mostly because He is so confident in His own heart towards you, so confident in His own ability towards you, He wants you to live every day under His smile.
