Are we seeking God for what He can do for us? Or for who He is?
1 chronicles 16:11 Seek the Lord and His strength; seek his presence continually!
There’s one thing that we need and that is God, you would not have been reading this devotional if you were not seeking God or seeking something from Him today.
This verse tells us that we seek God for what He can do and also for who He is.
Why does the Word tell us to “Seek His strength”?
- God is all powerful and we need His strength in every aspect of our lives.
Why does the Word tell us to “Seek His face continually”?
- His strength is what He can give us, His face is who He is, we need His presence.
We don’t need His presence just today, but day after day, continually seeking after the face of God.
Why His presence is so important:
Psalm 16:11 “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fulness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
When we seek after His presence we receive all of Him… strength, peace, love, mercy, that is why our enemy the devil uses the tactic against us for staying busy so that we don’t seek after His presence but rather, bothered with life’s daily tasks to seek our own ambitions.
