Seek God first

“Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” (1 Chronicles 16:11, NIV)

In this verse reminds us of the importance of seeking God, relying on His strength, and continuously seeking His presence in our lives.

As we reflect on 1 Chronicles 16:11, we are reminded to prioritize seeking God above all else. In the busyness of life, it is easy to become distracted and focus on our own abilities or circumstances. However, this verse redirects our attention to the true source of strength and joy, which is found in God alone.

Let us make it a daily practice to seek the Lord, both in times of triumph and in times of trial. Let us draw near to Him through prayer, worship, studying His Word, and cultivating a heart of gratitude. In seeking His face, we position ourselves to receive His guidance, strength, and peace that surpasses all understanding.

May 1 Chronicles 16:11 inspire us to continually seek the Lord, lean on His strength, and find joy in His presence. As we do so, we will experience His faithfulness and discover that He is the source of all we need.


May we make it our daily pursuit to seek God first, even in the midst of busyness and distractions. Let us prioritize our relationship with Him, continually seeking His face, and aligning our lives with His purposes. As we do so, we will experience the abundant life and fulfillment that comes from being in a close and intimate relationship with our loving Heavenly Father.


May we continually seek God first in our lives, making Him the foundation and focus of all that we do. May we trust in His faithfulness, rely on His guidance, and experience the fullness of life that comes from living in a deep and intimate relationship with Him.
