“Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. “Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works. 10Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. 11Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.” 1 Chronicles 16:8-11
The joy of the LORD is going to be your perpetual strength as you set your heart to seek His face and not self-interests or the fleeting trinkets of this sinful world (1 John 2:14-17).
If you are experiencing spiritual famine instead of spiritual feast, it’s because of the lack of seeking the LORD’s “face continually.” When you seek His holy and worthy face “continually,” His blessed joy is going to fill and teem in your heart as He blesses you with His banqueting table of infinite treasures. When we truly put Him “first” (and first means first), by determining that His holy face is the very first thought that is going to dominate our minds and affections, the victory is at hand!
Go after Him because He is worthy! Begin by repenting – turning or re-turning to Him with your whole heart, asking Him to forgive the idolatry of your heart.
