We interrupt this program to give you a special report!

Have you ever watched a program on TV and an announcer proclaimed, "We interrupt this program to give you a special report!"? That's exactly what I want to do. I want to get more feedback on my last post about Jesus stirring people and then give my thoughts about it, but I have to wait on that and blog what God is stirring in my heart this morning.

I woke up early (earlier than my flesh would have liked!) to that still small voice saying, "Seek My face!" I went to my computer and did a search in the Bible. Here are the verses I found:

2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJ 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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Psalms 27:8 NKJ When You said, "Seek My face," My heart said to You, "Your face, Lord, I will seek."

Hosea 5:15 NKJ I will return again to My place Till they acknowledge their offense. Then they will seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me."

I know that right now in light of the US presidential elections, we HAVE to do this! It's not just presidential elections, it is elections for congress, laws to protect marriage, the unborn, and may we not forget the future justices of the Supreme Court that will make rulings on many values we Christians hold dear. I pray that God will stir His people (ahh, where have we heard that before?!) and draw us to seek His face.

Now I want to hear from you about what you think that means to "seek God's face" and why that is so important. Hopefully we'll have more people chiming in, so keep your posts somewhat brief. I look forward to reading what everyone says!


  1. When we seek his face He responds abundantly. I woke up early as well. After reading my devotions and Acts 2, I prayed fervantly. God laid several dear friends on my heart: Tammy, Bill (your husband), Maria, Loyd, Amy, Matthew, Dan, and my children to name a few. I also prayed for Servanthood minitries and your up coming Emmaus Walk. As I was praying, he cleansed me deeply. My prayer closed with the Holy Spirit freshening my soul and just one more request. "What ever you have in store for us, Lord, keep the people that we hold dear close", then I checked my email and found your invitation to Twitter. I feel so blessed to have my faithful Lord to fill me so abundantly. Even when the flesh is tired, if god calls me to pray, I will obey. He is so good. Thank you, Tammy. Isn't it incredible that when I thought I was praying alone, you were praying with me?

  2. To Seek God's face means more to me than looking.
    I tmeans allowing your inner self to long after his purpose for your life regardless of anything going on causing strife. Seek God's face in all that you do for seeking God alone is the only thing that will pull you through. In all that you do, seek Him so you will always flow in and through His truth. Heddie J.

  3. How precious it is when God nudges us awake. I too am an early riser today. In those first moments I snuggled next to husband and said, "Lord, I just wanna sleep." Yet sleep didn't come. Then in my search through the scripture I found several treasures I felt God planned for me--reminders of how I need to trust Him and continue to faithfully pray for others.
