Seek Your Face-Lord, How?

Lord, how do I seek Your face?

Seek Your face, how Lord? What does it mean to ‘seek Your face’? I want to seek Your face, but I’m not sure how. Does this mean actually see Your face? Or does it mean seek Your companionship or to bond in friendship? What does it mean?

It means ‘commune’ with Me.

[Commune: to focus on God- converse, talk often with profound intensity, intimate communication or rapport as sharing your heart and mind with God in prayer- an interchange of ideas or sentiments.]

Lord, I want to commune with You. I want You as my very best friend. And I want to please You in all things.

At times I try to follow Your leading, but due to distractions and the voices of others who tell me what to do, I miss out on Your best for me.

Help me to listen and focus on Your voice. Not because I’m trying to be holy and religion, or better than others, but because I want what’s best for me. Your will is best for me. So, in a way could seeking Your will, which is best for me, be selfish?

No Child, I want to give the ‘best’ to all My children. And it pleases Me when they humble their own pride to seek My will for them. After all, this is the ‘best’ for them.

My will is always the ‘best’. 

Also, I enjoy rewarding My children with the ‘best’ just as you enjoy giving to yours. My desire is to bless My children with My love. 

If only they would seek My face and bond with Me in intimate companionship-friendship. They would never be separated, living their lives in constant communion -interaction, allowing My Presence to interact with them in constant interchange of covenant.

Lord, I want covenant with You.

Child, I want you, and all of your family, friends, and associates too. My desire is to commune and covenant with all people.

And it’s the distractions and the voices of others that cause My people to miss what is My best for them.

If My people would focus on a relationship with Me and humble themselves, which means seek My advice, seek My will and follow it, then I would heal their land. 

The Lord says, “I will heal your land if you seek My face.”

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2Chronicles 7:14

But Lord, how do I seek Your face?

Talk with Me, even while eating and drinking you can be in My Presence. Invite Me to be involved in all you do, say, and even to what you think. Invite Me to be with you all throughout your day, within all you do. Throughout your day, interact with Me. I am real, not an imaginary friend, but real, more real than you’ll ever know.

“As you yield yourself to Me, I will increase your joy and peace,” says the Lord.

Overall, it’s My desire to be involved in every detail of your life, even within your thoughts. So invite Me in to be with you. Seek My will and My advice about everything in your life, even about what you eat and drink. Then follow how I lead you. Then follow My advice. 

Seek My face. Seek a relationship with Me and My involvement in every detail of your life. As you seek My involvement in all your activities and even your thoughts, then I can intervene for you. As you open your life, then I can bless you with My peace and My joy and My victory too. 

Not only do I give peace and joy, but I will grant you victory to overcome the difficulties of life. No matter the circumstances or difficulties, I will always bring those who belong to Me through it all to finish in victory. I always bring those who belong to Me to victory. After all, I AM VICTORY.

As you seek His face, He will rejoice over you.

  1. I love you Debbie and thank you for sharing your honest heartfelt conversations with God!! Unless you struggle with overeating as I do, they don’t understand how hard it is, When I am feeling down and out about my weight and I see people on Facebook that have lost weight and look so good, I want to look like that but yet I still desire the food that brings me shame and condemnation . Your blogs are so wonderful. Please pray for me.

  2. Thanks Debbie. Only the Lord keeps us calm in this crazy world we live in. Thank you Lord for your peace that you bring into our lives.💗
