God wants you to seek His face. This is not referring to just worship or praising Him. When you seek God, you are living with Him. He is in your thinking. Your very breath. That’s how much you desire Him, and want to know Him, and be with Him. He isn’t just one aspect of you, but He is your whole existence. With Him comes everything that your life needs. Learn how you can seek God in a deeper way and what happens when you do.
Ask God To
(14:30 min ).
What happens when you have a deep yearning inside you to have a greater awareness of God? You may not be sure how it starts or why. You just reach a point where your spirit is reaching out for Him. You may come to the place where you lay across your bed or you kneel beside a chair or sit in the car in a parking lot or driveway. You’re alone with God.
Something starts to come over you and you have a sense of Him that is so strong you’re amazed. Tears may start to flow. You feel a connection with the Spirit of God that is near. You may not even be sure of what’s going on, but you know it’s an encounter with Him.
In those moments, God is revealing Himself to you. That’s what He desires to do. Make Himself known more to you, in a deeper way. To fill you so full of Him that it satisfies the longing within your heart. You receive overriding joy and peace and trust that cannot be had any other way.
He desires for you to experience His presence in its fullness. It’s as my dad said to me once. “God is generous with His presence; He is not stingy.” That is such a revelation. Sometimes I think we assume that God is holding back His presence at times. That He is going to reveal Himself just to those who are spiritual enough or called by Him in a certain way.
Not so. God freely gives His presence to us. The Lord wants us to seek Him so He can be revealed to us in a greater way. God will reveal Himself to the heart who desires Him.
There is a tremendous story of how He did this for some people who were in remote regions in the Belgian Congo. These people did not have access to Bibles or ministers in any way. But there was a man by the name of Sir Alexander Clarke who felt the call of God to go into that region to do medical missionary work. Eventually he made his way to those remote areas and started working among them.
There was one group of people he discovered that surprised him, because when he began to witness to them, they said they already knew the Lord as their Savior. He couldn’t understand how they could do this without a Christian coming there to witness to them. So they described to him how they used to go out under the stars at night and seek the One who created them. They wanted to know Him. So they began to worship and pray for Him to reveal Himself to them. And He did. God gave them revelation for one reason. They were seeking His face.
We may think we’re doing okay in our life, so we may not realize the need we have to have a greater sense of His presence. But it’s there. God wants to fill that hunger so we are more complete on the inside. We’re not striving so much. Feeling frustrated or lacking.
As you seek Him and walk into the open arms of His presence, you will find what you need. He’ll raise you up. Take you past the terrible times and restore you from hurt. Turn around the wrong direction events are going and take you higher than you’ve ever been. Your life will have greater fulfillment and God’s will can come about for you.
Think of this. In seeking God…
Abraham found faith and a new place for his family and was given a covenant with God.
Moses received guidance and strength to save the Hebrews from Egyptian bondage.
Hannah received a baby when she could not have one.
In seeking God, Joseph received the fulfillment of his dream.
Daniel fasted and prayed and received a vision and answer to the plight of his people.
Esther became a Queen and saw the salvation of the Jews.
Saul received the new name of Paul and became an apostle who wrote much of the New Testament.
When people sought the face of God, they found what He had for their life. But they had to be intent and serious about it. Not just, “If I do fine and if I don’t fine.” Seeking God was important to them.
That’s a decision we’ll have to make. How important is it to me? Do I want God to be my very breath, my life? In Him do I live and move and have my being? Can I truly say as David said in Psalm 27, My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, WILL I seek, inquire for, and require of necessity and on the authority of Your Word. If you say that and allow nothing to stand in your way, then you can experience all that God is and what He wants to do in your life.
