Seek His Face
Did you know that the world longs for the blessings of God. They long for His love, joy, and peace--but they don't long for the person of God. So many people who call themselves "seekers" are really only seeking God's hand, they're not seeking His face. They're like the unrepentant thief on the cross, they want to be saved from WHERE they are but not from WHO they are. You know it is interesting, Jesus never responded to the unrepentant thief ... but He directly and immediately responded to the repentant thief who humbly asked, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." Listen, each of us is a sinner, a thief before God. And the question of all questions is simple: which thief are you? Seek His face not His hand, because it is there where you'll find real hope.
