Psalm 105:4 - Depend Upon God And His Strength In All That You 
Do. (addendum) 

Psalm 105:4 (KJV)  Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his 
face evermore. 

Psalm 105:4 (NIV)  Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his 
face always. 

Psalm 105:4 (NRSV)  Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his 
presence continually. 

  The psalmist calls us in these verses to praise God, give him 
thanks, proclaim his greatness, and let the whole world know what he has 
done, but he also calls us to search for the Lord and his strength and 
to keep on searching. To search means to look carefully and 
thoroughly in an effort to find something important. The original Hebrew 
text has the idea of seeking with our whole hearts continually, 
regularly, daily, and then depending on his strength for all the challenges 
we face in living as his followers instead of in our own strength. 
  In response to our searching, the Lord loves to reveal himself 
to us and then manifest his strength in our lives. He has not 
hidden his character from his people; over and over throughout the 
Bible, through his Son, Jesus, and through his Spirit and creation, he 
has revealed his heart, his glory, and his nature that we might know 
him. Those who seek God and give their time to searching for him and 
knowing him will find all their needs met in him. 
  LORD, I give thanks to you and proclaim your greatness! I want 
to tell everyone what you have done. Thank you for the many 
promises in your Word that you will come and strengthen me and reveal 
yourself so that I can know you more intimately. Cause me to seek you 
with all my heart, to search for you daily and throughout my life, 
and to depend on your strength for each day. [Praying Through The 
Bible By Fuller re Psa. 105:1-4] 

Our God Loves To Come; He Wants To Come Forth In Us, To Rise Up 
In Us In All His Beauty. Margaret Therkelsen
