Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When You said, "Seek My face," My heart said to You, "Your face, LORD, I will seek."
Do not hide Your face from me; Do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; Do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the LORD will take care of me.
Teach me Your way, O LORD, And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies. Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries; For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.
This passage is reflecting a message that we are seeing in earlier Psalms: that of worshiping through seeking His presence in all aspects of our lives. I know that I have a ways to go for this instruction counsels me to seek the LORD, God, thee Almighty in everywhere in my life.
It is not so much that I wall off a portion of my life, oh, I can and do at times, but much worse. I FORGET! I need to seek to be deliberate about seeking Him—everywhere--all the time—without reservation.
