Seek Ye My Face

You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, LORD, do I seek.” Psa 27:8

“Seek ye my face” – it contains a profound significance. We can perceive one at a distance, we can bear him spoken of, we can become aware of his presence without yet having approached him, and placed ourselves before him, so that he looks at us and we at him. But there is a moment in the life of the child of God when he feels the stress of the inability to rest, until he finds God; until after he has found Him, he has placed himself before Him, and standing before Him, seeks His face; and he can not cease that search until he has met God’s eye, and in that meeting has obtained the touching realization that God has looked into his soul and he has looked God in the eye of Grace. And only when it has come to this the mystery of grace discloses itself.”__A.Kuyper

Is there anything we had rather do, anything more that we desire than this?  I think not…we are always, with joy, living “coram deo”…

“To live coram Deo is to live one’s entire life in the presence of God, under the authority of God, to the glory of God.To live in the presence of God is to understand that whatever we are doing and wherever we are doing it, we are acting under the gaze of God. God is omnipresent.”_RCSproul
