People seek after all sorts of things, but there’s one thing that people should seek more than anything else. They should seek the Lord. Instead of always seeking after the world and the things of the world, people should turn from the world and seek that which is the very source of the world. After all, it’s worth their while. The book of Hebrews tells us that the Lord “rewards those who seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). And David says of him that seeks the Lord, “He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob” (Psalm 24:5-6).
We should not only seek the Lord Himself, but we should seek the things that the Lord provides for those who seek Him. As our verse for today points out, one thing in particular that people should seek from the Lord is His strength. Life is hard in this dispensation. There are trials, troubles, tribulations, and persecutions. We need help. We need the strength to go through what we have to go through. It takes more than any strength we can muster on our own. It takes supernatural strength. It takes the strength of the Lord God Himself. Isaiah says, “He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength” (Isaiah 40:29).
How often should we seek the Lord? Our verse says we should seek His presence continually. No doubt, this does not mean that we should do nothing other than seek the Lord. It means that seeking the Lord should be an important part of our lives. It means that seeking the presence of the Lord should be a regular feature of our lives. Why wait until the disaster strikes? Why wait until we have run out of strength? We should seek the Lord and the help of the Lord before any of the bad stuff happens. Who knows how much trouble we will thereby avoid? Who knows how many times we will never even run out of strength?
Today and every day the Lord is saying to us, “Seek my face.” So we should say to Him today and every day, “Your face, LORD, do I seek” (Psalm 27:8).
