(Okay, I’m stuck on King James’ Queen’s English. I grew up with it, and more importantly- I can easily word-search its quirky phrases.) To me, seeking God’s face is looking him square in the eye.
‘My heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.’ To this day God calls to all, ‘Adam, where are you?’ We’re in one of two places: hiding from his presence, or seeking his face. ‘Try the spirits.’
