| Thought for Nov 21, 1997 : To Seek Your Face - Part II |
Many would say that worship is living a love relationship with God. The relationship that God chose to have with Moses in Numbers 12:6-8 seems like a "priveledged" communion that we shouldn't dare to desire. The opportunity for such a relationship seems almost incomprehensible. But Scripture does not take that view. In Psalm 17:15, David expresses that his desire and hunger can only be satisfied by such a relationship with God. David has the brashness to pray to God, saying that he will not be satified unless he can meet with God, face to face, as Moses did.
God, himself, calls Solomon and all the nation of Israel to not just pray to him, but to "seek my face" ( 2 Chronicles 7:14-15).
John Wimber captures the desire to see God face to face in his song "No One But You".
You are altogether lovely,
And You're all I want to see.
And when my life is through,
I'm coming home to You,
That's all I want to do,
Just come home to You.
