Hearing God's Call
As we come to Him, we can have confidence to pray that He will come to us. David heard God's call to seek His face and made it a lifelong pursuit. In Psalm 27 David says,
One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to seek Him in His temple.
As David sought God's face, he grew in confident hope that God would bring His transforming goodness into the predicaments in which David and his people lived. That is why he called for a persistent kind of prayer that would not let go of God's promised goodness:
Wait on the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
David sought God's face, which led him to seek God's kingdom in full-hearted hope.
