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.

God’s Mercy – We All Need It

God’s mercy, we all need it, worldwide. At times, it seems as though the world has gone crazy. I don’t understand any of it. Do you?

God's Mercy

All I do know is that we all need God’s mercy. So I’m posting a prayer for all of us. Why not join me in prayer where you are now. Let’s pray together for our world.

Our Prayer:

‭‭‬‬Lord, we need Your mercy.

Provide healing for those who are sick. Also provide comfort and peace to those who have lost loved ones. Bring Your healing power to our lands.

Grant provision for those who have lost jobs due to this CV-19.

In fact Lord, we need Your help, strength, and peace just to get through our daily lives. Everything seems so fearful or despondent for now due to the influence of CV-19.

We hear reports of those who sacrificed unselfishly of themselves to help others. They served in hospitals, or as first responders, or truck drivers to bring our supplies, or as store employees so we could purchase our needs. They are real heroes of this time.

Help the rest of us, who still have our health and homes to get off our duffs and out of the refrigerator. Let us be filled with hope and reach for Your love instead of our cookies and chips.

Help us to reach out to others in need and show them love. Lord, help us to love one another no matter our differences. Help us to forgive each other and forgive ourselves too.

We all need healing.

Lord, we praise you for You are our source for all we need. Cover our lands with healing, hope, and Your love. Lord we all need healing of some kind, either from physical sickness, or emotional despondency.

Our lands need healing. We need leaders who will seek and follow Your will versus their pocketbook. We need leaders who will follow Your agenda versus their own.

Lord we need revival across our lands. But mostly, we need revival in our hearts. Overall, we need Your love and Your forgiveness for our many failures.

Again Lord, we need You and Your mercy. Help us, for we are a stubborn, foolish, and needy people.

Without You, there is no hope. So Lord, fill all of us with Your love so we can minister to one another in love . Thank you for Your mercy and helping us cope with this day.

We praise You for the victory we know You’ve already planned and provided for us. Amen

God's Mercy Feed on God’s Word

Let Us Feed On His Word

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭NLT

. . . Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. . . Matthew 6: 9,10 NKJV

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. 2 Chronicles 7:14

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:1,2 

We all need God’s mercy.  God has the whole world in His hands. And we can trust HIM.
