Seeking the face of God is critical in our growth as Christians.
Growth in Our Faith
In an episode of Growing In Prayer, James Aladiran talks about the importance of seeking the face of God in our journey as His followers. He referenced 2 Chronicles 7:14 to emphasize that seeking God’s face can give us access to heaven, can forgive our sins, and can heal our land.
“There’s something about seeking the face of God that’s so critical in growing in maturity in your fellowship with God. The way we grow in maturity in our walk with God is not by being a Christian for so many years… You could be 20-years-old or 15-years-old and be a lot more spiritually mature than someone who’s 60-years-old and has been in the church all their life.”
Seeking the Face of God
The time we have served the Lord can’t guarantee us spiritual maturity. We can serve the Lord and our local church yet be distant with God and stagnant with our faith. Spiritual maturity can only be attained by having an intimate relationship with God and by seeking His face.
“Spiritual maturity is not measured by human years. It’s actually measured by your face time with God and how that has changed you. Because the Bible says, we are changed as we behold Him. The more you behold the Lord in seeking Him, the more His presence changes you on the inside and the more you become like Him.”
Transformation begins when we have established a relationship with Him.
“God is calling us to be a people that are transformed into His image… God wants you to mature in your faith to a place where you learn how to seek His face.”
