Psalm 105:4 – Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!
May 2014 be a year we Seek the Lord like never before!
Seeking the Lord means seeking his presence. But why do we seek God when He’s declared himself to be Immanuel, The God who is with us? Because this seeking isn’t because God is lost or that he leaves us, rather it a conscious effort to draw near to God.
“Whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).
It’s constantly setting our minds towards God in all our experiences and challenges in life. Seek the Lord and His Strength = Put yourself under his protection. Look to Him as Lord of all and experience the power of His all sufficient grace.
Notice that First we seek Him, then His strength and then His face;
- We move from the personal reverence – The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom & understanding
- We pass on to the imparted power – Spiritual Strength that comes from God
- and then to the conscious favor – Where we meet Him face to face
This seeking must never stop. It can be applied to every situation you face. Put God 1st and seek him as Lord over your situation. Seek his strength, you are an overcomer, more than a conqueror through Christ. Seek His face and His favor. Hold on for victory and the blessings that are yours as a Friend & Child of God.
