Seek God's Face

"You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the LORD." Jeremiah 29:13-14

What a wonderful verses. Most of us tend to think that praying and "seeking God's face" are one and the same. But they are not. Prayer often involves asking for something. We pray for wisdom, for health for finances, for the salvation of loved ones, for our nation, and for a host of things too numerous to mention. Of course, we pray for revival too, both in our own hearts and in our country. Seeking God's face is far different from asking Him for something or presenting Him with a list of petitions. For me, seeking the Lord's face means praying over and over and over again that I might be close to Him, be led by Him, have the knowledge of His will, and be used in His plan. It's amazing and wonderful how God answers this prayer. He makes me aware of His nearness at unexpected times. Clearly, our God is a God of relationship. He is now a distant, hands-off God. He numbers the very hairs or our heads. He knows the words on our tongues before we speak them. He ordained the days of our lives even before we took our first breath.

Draw closer to God, He is always here for us, He listen to our cry and His love for us in incomparable. He loves us so much that's why he gave His life to save us.
