God wants us to seek His face because He wants to be known by us.  Scripture suggests He wants you to FIND Him.  Every human has a desire to be known and to be loved. God has this desire as well and throughout scripture He richly blesses those who seek His face.


“But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul”  (Deuteronomy 4:29). 


“I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me” (Proverbs 8:17).


“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). 


“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Luke 11:9). 


“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth … did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us” (Acts 17:24, 27).


The true nature of worship is to seek God’s face. The Christian walk is a life devoted to seeking God’s presence and favor. The Lord wants us to humbly and trustingly seek His face. It requires intimacy to look intently into someone’s face. Pursuing God’s face is equivalent to developing an intimate relationship with Him.


Having God’s face smile on us is an expression of His blessing, love, and favor: “May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you” (Numbers 6:25 NLT; see also Psalm 80:3, 7, 19).  When we draw close to God, we are blessed with His shining favor. We do not pursue Him only to give Him a list of wants and needs because we know God is already aware of what we need  (Matthew 6:7-8, 32-33).  We trust that He will take care of us.


Seeking God’s face means desiring to know His character and wanting Him—His presence—more than any other thing He can give us.


Many times in Scripture, God’s people are encouraged to seek the face of God.  “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).  If we can’t see God’s face, how do we seek God’s face?


The Hebrew word for “face” in the Old Testament is often translated “presence.” When we seek the face of God, we are seeking His presence. The call to seek God’s face was issued to His people because they had abandoned Him and needed to return to Him.


In Psalm 105:4, God’s faithful ones were called to “seek his face always.” Even if we have not abandoned God, there are times when we neglect to pursue Him. God’s face, His holy character, is often obscured by our human condition and fleshly desires. That is why the Lord urges us to seek His face continually. The Lord desires to be our constant companion in every experience of life. He wants us to know Him through and through. If we draw close to Him, God will draw close to us: “Come close to God, and God will come close to you.” (James 4:8, NLT).


When we approach God in prayer, we are seeking His face: “They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob” (Psalm 24:5-6).
