Winning Wisdom: Seek His Face


Topic: Seek His Face — Wednesday, 16th August 2017.

Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore. Psalms 105:4

What better way to experience God daily than to continually seek His face and to know His ways? Most folks see God as their meal ticket or as the guy that comes to fix their plumbing when it gets bad, and after that, He is allowed to stay out as long as their lives are moving smoothly until something else happens that needs fixing. How tragic is this? Because they don't seem to know what they are missing out from. Well, if you are one of such folks, I can assuredly assure you that you are missing out on a lot of things.

Seeking the face of the Lord is enjoying the sweet fragrance of His presence that is always with us. At this time, we just pause everything else and enjoy God's presence. The Psalmist says in Psalms 140:13: "surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence." Dwelling in the presence of God is key to us. Yes, the presence of God is always with us because of His Spirit He has given us, but we need to pause sometimes, and enjoy this presence. Be energized by the glory we see. Be inspired by the awe of it.

It is wonderful for us to pray to God to meet our needs. He even encourages us to do that in Matthew 7:7. But before then, He gave us a higher revelation of what He expects from us in Matthew 6:33, which urges us to seek first God's Kingdom and its righteousness. And from scriptures, we've known that the kingdom is in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17). So, we need to always go with the higher revelation of God's Word. Seek the face of the Lord continually, let this be your daily pursuit. In doing this, you are engaging in the most important activity that transforms lives into the very personage of the fullness of God.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank You for Your Word. Help me, by the working of Your Spirit in me, to continually seek Your face. So I can behold the fragrance of Your glory and be changed into the fullness of Your person, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
