Seeking God


 

Sunset over Mountain RangeFrom Pastor’s Desk:

My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek. – Psalm 27:8 (NIV)

There are many who are after God’s hand, or His provision, but the Psalmist is going much farther—he is after God’s face. This imagery portrays intimacy, conversation, and connection. Don’t let the demands that life brings keep you from what God is after. We want to be pragmatic and resolve our problems, but God wants us to know Him and, in the process, become like Him. A relationship with God is much more than spiritual pragmatism; God wants to change us with His beauty. (Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org)

A friend “corrected” one time when I had referenced another individual as we are to seek God’s face. My friend said that rather than seek God’s face, we should seek His glory. Psalm 27:8 brings to mind that when we seek God’s face are we not seeking His glory? His face is that part of Him that turns toward us when we cry out to Him, whether in prayer, praise, worship, or whatever the case may be.

Considering all the opinions, including mine, I have heard pertaining to this subject, my prayer is that God will show me all His glory that I can stand, by any means He desires.
