Ps 80 has some great truths worth exploring:

Here is one:

(Psa 80:19 KJV)  Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

  1. Turn us again: revival
  2. O LORD God: revival is of God
  3. Of hosts: revival is for the masses as well as the individual
  4. Cause thy face to shine: revival comes out of God’s Light (Jesus Christ), and Light is Life (John 1:4)
  5. And we shall be saved: revival is salvation PRESENT:
    1. Salvation from our sins is by a one-time faith in Christ — a step in Christ (who died)
    2. Salvation from our Sin is by repeated faith in Christ — a walk in Christ (who is Alive!)
  1. Revival is a progression. Experience leads us higher and higher and quickens our faith:
    1. The cry for revival is found 3 times in this Psalm — each one addressing God in higher form:

(Psa 80:3 KJV)  Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

(Psa 80:7 KJV)  Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

(Psa 80:19 KJV)  Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

Finally, (Psa 80:17-18 KJV)  Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself. {18} So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.

That is Jesus! “the man of thy right hand.” “the son of man” “whom thou madest strong for thyself.” “Quicken us” (Hb. 4:12, the Word of God is quick …” 1 Cor. 15, Jesus is made a quickening spirit …

  1. “Turn us” is a faith expression:
    1. It is the cry of the heart to God
    1. It is dependence, reliance and trust in God
    1. It is expressed, willful permission for God to work
    1. It is the will of man given over to the will of God
