God is everywhere, but He doesn’t turn His face and His favor everywhere. That is why He tells us to seek His face. Yes, He is present with you every time you meet with believers in a worship service, but how long has it been since your hunger caused you to crawl up in His lap, and like a child, to reach up and take the face of God to turn it toward you? Intimacy with Him! That is what God desires, and His face should be our highest focus.
(The God Chasers, 38)
The face of God is beautiful to behold. When I get to heaven I will see his face always because He will be my Light and my sun. I will be raptured perfect and His Light will be all over me. On earth here I must still “struggle” to keep myself holy and full of light because the devil is always chasing after me to overcast me with his shadow of darkness. I refuse to stay under the canopy of the enemy. God’s wings and Light is all over me. Cloth me with your Light daily Lord!
Lord I seek your face. I hunger more and more for you. I want to get lost in rapturous worship always, beholding your face. I crawl into your arms where I feel most secure, Lord. I behold your face. Look at me Lord. I behold you face-to-face! Keep your face on me Lord. Do not remove your face from me. Watch over me everywhere I am, my ever present and living God.
The Lord wants us to have the heart of a little child when we come to Him (Matt. 19:14). When a little child comes to his earthly father, it is usually in sincerity and trust. Oh Lord, grant me a tender heart, one that loves you and reverences you always in Jesus name.
