 Seeking the Light of His Face

Go ahead and give God thanks for all the glorious things he has done! Go ahead and worship him! Tell everyone about his wonders! Let’s sing his praises! Sing, and put all of his miracles to music! Shine and make your joyful boast in him, you lovers of God. Let’s be happy and keep rejoicing no matter what. Seek more of his strength! Seek more of him! Let’s always be seeking the light of his face. Don’t you ever forget his miracles and marvels. Hold to your heart every judgment he has decreed. (Psalms 105:1-5 TPT)

David gives us great instructions in these 5 verses:

• Give thanks
• Call on His name
• Make Him known
• Sing to Him
• Tell of His acts
• Glory in Him
• Rejoice
• Look to His strength
• Seek Him always
• Remember His wonders, miracles, and judgments

Today these words stand out:


But if from there you will seek (inquire for and require as necessity) the Lord your God, you will find Him if you [truly] seek Him with all your heart [and mind] and soul and life. (Deuteronomy 4:29 AMPC)

Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6 NASB)

When you are seeking something or someone, you look diligently until you find what you are pursuing! When we are seeking the intimate presence of the Lord, once or occasionally is not enough. We seek Him continually and habitually while we work, while we play; we seek Him when we struggle and when we are filled with the greatest of joy! We seek Him relentlessly, endlessly, continuously, not for what He can do for us, but for WHO HE IS.

I remind myself, “It’s not about me.” When you look for someone’s help you are seeking for someone’s assistance. You need their service. You want that person to do something for you so that you can remedy a problem or get out of a mess. When you get a flat tire, you call AAA to fix it. When you have a toothache, you go to the dentist for help. Each time, you are seeking the service that person offers.

When a believer is facing a mountain he/she cannot climb, or is walking through a dark valley of life, God does it a different way. He does not want you to first seek His HELP but instead Seek His Face. (see Matthew 5:33) Seek God’s face before seeking His help. God wants you to know Him. Your Creator longs for a personal relationship with you, His creation. He desires to reveal Himself to you. He longs for you to get beyond the acquaintance level. When Moses sought to know God, he got so close to Him he had to take off his shoes; he realized he was standing on holy ground. When Isaiah sought to know God, he got so close he had to cry out how unclean he personally felt he was.

Yes, God’s hand is important, but His Word does not tell us to seek His hand, His Word teaches us to Seek God’s Face.

When you seek God’s face, you set yourself up for a dramatic change. The colossal mountain you are facing or the deep dark valley you are walking through will become small in comparison to experiencing God’s closeness, goodness, and greatness. Stormy winds are breezes in comparison to God’s power. Your gigantic ‘issue’ shrinks in comparison to God’s closeness. The enormous problem you are facing no longer has its grip on you because you have seen The Light of His Face!

As you Seek His Face, you will experience His closeness, goodness and greatness which will overwhelm you. I encourage you to Seek the Light of His Face continually. Don’t let your days get away from you without giving praise to your Father.

Understand His praise and glory should continually pour from your lips no matter what. Our God is faithful, powerful, loving, and full of grace. Allow Him to show you more and more of who He is during your intimate worship time … Seeking the Light of His Face.

Victorious by His Grace!
