Text to Ponder:Psalm 105:4: “Look to the LORD and His strength; seek His face always.” NIV84
Focus: Is 55:6–7; Ps 27:8; Jer 29:13–14a; Ps 119:58; 63:1b (NIV84)
Seek the LORD while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.
My heart says of You, “Seek His face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek.
You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD. …
I have sought Your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to Your promise…. earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You, my body longs for You, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
