“When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.”
King James Version (KJV)

In this verse we are taught that if we would have the Lord hear our voice, we must be careful to respond to his voice. The true heart should echo the will of God as the rocks among the Alps repeat in sweetest music the notes of the peasant's horn. Observe, that the command was in the plural, to all the saints, Seek ye; but the man of God turned it into the singular by a personal application, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. The voice of the Lord is very effectual where all other voices fail. When thou saidst, then my heart, my inmost nature was moved to an obedient reply. Note the promptness of the response -- no sooner said than done; as soon as God said "seek," the heart said, "I will seek." Oh, for more of this holy readiness! Would to God that we were more plastic to the divine hand, more sensitive of the touch of God's Spirit.

Psalms 27:8 "When thou saidst, Seek ye My Face; my heart said unto Thee, Thy Face, LORD, will I seek."
Genesis 1:27 says that we ALL are made in the Image of God. Therefore you can find the LOVING Face of the LORD in the mirror. Amen.

I just love this version of the bible that uses God 's actual name that is mentioned over 6700 actual times throughout. "To my heart You have said, "Seek My face ",Your face, YHVH,I seek. This says it without mincing words, to the point, you call and I answer. This is God 's actual name, not a description like Lord, or god. It the one He commanded the Israelite 's to use exclusively after all!

THE MOST ADECUATED TRANSLATION FOR ME, SEEMS TO BE THE JEWISH PUBLICATION. THIS VERSE IS PROPHETIC, SO IT REFLECTS THE WONDERFUL PRESENT REALITY THAT JESUS IS TODAY THE SPIRIT (2ND COR. 3:17); AND THIS NEW SPIRIT THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US(THE LIFE GIVING SPIRIT, 1ST COR 15:45) ACCORDING TO EZEQUIEL 36:26 IS TODAY (JESUS THE SPIRIT) ONE WITH OUR BORN AGAIN SPIRIT.(IST. COR 6:17) SO, WHEN WE SEEK GOD'S FACE, WHEN WE REMAIN IN OUR SPIRIT, OUR NEW HEART, OUR NEW PERSON IS IN THE SPIRIT SEEING WITH UNVEILED FACES LIKE IN A MIRROW, NOT OUR OWN FACES, BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD. THIS BECAUSE WE ARE ACCOMPLISHING GODS DESIRE TO BE CONFORMED TO CHRIST'S IMAGE, THERE IS A TRANSFORMATION, BECAUSE EATING AND DRINKING CHRIST, SEEKING HIM, HE TRANSFORMS US METABOLICALLY; CHRIST COMES TO BE OUR ELEMENT, HE IS GROWING IN US. SO MY HEART SAYS IN BEHALF OF GOD: SEEK YE "MY FACE". THE NEW MAN, THE MAN IN THE SPIRIT EXPRESSES CHRIST, SO MY FACE WHEN HE SHINES "OVER ME", IS NOT MY FACE BUT THE FACE OF THE MAN CREATED TO GOD'S IMAGE. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL, WHEN WE SEEK HIM ITS BETTER THAN WHEN WE ENJOY OUR WONDERFUL WIFE'S PERSON.... "HE WHO UNITES TO THE LORD, ONE SPIRIT IS WITH HIM",...ALELUYA.
