READ Hebrews 10:19-22
The passage above tells us that we have the privilege of entering into the majestic presence of God by virtue of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Sometimes we need to approach God in prayer not because we need something or because we want to intercede for others. We just need to have some communion and fellowship with Him.
This is the highest level of prayer, because it is one of the primary requisites for revival. When God gave us the prescription for revival in II Chronicles 7:14 He spoke of the necessity of humility, repentance and seeking God’s face.
I believe there is a vast difference between seeking God’s hand and seeking God’s face. When we seek His hand we are looking for His provision, but when we seek His face we have no agenda other than communion with Him – worship. When we achieve that intimacy then we have taken a giant step toward revival.
Men must realize that business interests are important, hobbies offer distractions from the fast pace of life and sports often consume an inordinate amount of time, but that nothing is more important than spending time with the Lord. How much time do you spend each day seeking the face of God? The promise of Matthew 6:33 is that if we seek first God’s kingdom all other things will find their proper place. Try seeking Him above all else.
Dear Lord Jesus, forgive me for only giving You a place in my life. Help me to make You preeminent in my life. Help me to be able to say with King David, “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
