Seek the Lord and crave Him and His strength (His might and inflexibility to temptation); seek and require His face and His Presence forevermore (Psalm 105:4).
Seek the Lord and crave Him and His strength (His might and inflexibility to temptation); seek and require His face and His Presence forevermore (Psalm 105:4). As you grow older, you will see all the more reason why you need His help to get through circumstances and to resist temptation.
Seek Him and require Him as a vital necessary and you will find Him when you search for Him with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13). Your heavenly Father wants you to know Him, so when He sees you looking, He will let you find Him.
Earnestly seek your God. For your inner self thirsts for Him, your flesh longs and is faint for Him, in a dry and weary land where no water is. So look upon Him in the sanctuary to see His power and His glory. Because His loving-kindness is better than life, your lips shall praise Him. Bless Him while you live. Lift up your hands in His Name.
Your whole being shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and your mouth shall praise Him with joyful lips, when you remember Him upon your bed and meditate on Him in the night watches. For He has been your help and in the shadow of His wings will you rejoice. Your whole being shall follow hard after Him and cling closely to Him; His right hand upholds you (Psalm 63:1-8).
May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing through the experience of your faith that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope (Romans 15:13). Yes, as you come so close to Him and trust Him and rest in Him confidently, He will give you peace and a joy that passes all understanding. And, that joy will overflow for others to see.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with joyful shouting (Job 8:21). You will be so joyful that others will want to know what it is that you have that they don't have. They won't understand how you can be so calm through the hard times. And, when they ask, you will be able to confidently tell them how the Lord is holding you. You will be able to bring them to Christ because you searched and found Him, and therefore you can lead them to Him, as well.
I pray that you may really come to know practically, through experience for yourself the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge without experience; that you may be filled through all your being unto all the fullness of God and may have the richest measure of the divine Presence and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself (Ephesians 3:19)!
