Seek His Presence

Phil introduces our theme for the year: Seek His Presence based on the scripture 1 Chronicles 16:11 Look to the Lord and his strength, seek his face always. Phil shares ways we can seek God's presence: desire more, make space, and actively seek.

“Seek His Presence.”

Read 1 Chronicles 16:8-14.

Read it again, in a different translation.

  • What is one thing that stood out to you from this passage?

As a group, work your way through the reading slowly and note each time the song gives a command or imperative (like, “give praise,” or “remember the wonders he has done.”)

  • You will soon realise there are a lot of imperatives in this song! Why might that be?
  • What is the point of all of these commands? What do they have in common with each other?

How do you seek God’s face?

Imagine you are talking with someone who is new to faith, or curious about Christianity, and they want to know more about how they can experience God’s presence.

  • How would you advise them?

What do you think God is saying to you from this passage?

What can you do in response?
