My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek (Psalm 27:8).
It’s simple, really.
Your heart knows.
Be careful, Beloved. I don’t think David is talking about his emotions when he talks about his heart. We all know that trusting and following our emotions can bring on a whole world of pain and embarrassment and regret.
I mean, I remember a time when…
But the heart is deeper than that. You’ve gotta get past the emotions that throw you around like the proverbial storm-tossed ship. You have to move beyond all the turmoil to get to the still place, the quiet place, the place where life becomes very simple indeed:
Seek his face.
Remember who he is.
In this Psalm, David was under attack, and there was no simple way to fight back. His response, and his advice to us today…
seek his face.
Happy Wednesday, Beloved.
