When was the last time you locked eyes with someone? Do you remember looking into their eyes - and letting them gaze into yours - and search - absorb?
There's nothing much like a meaningful glance shared - especially with someone you're inviting to know you. And as comforting as it is to lock eyes with someone you connect with - doing so with someone who makes you uncomfortable is clearly unpleasant.
What's mind-blowing about this verse is God's inviting us to seek Him in this way. It's not that He doesn't know our limitations. He knows them better than we do - and still He invites us to seek His face!
Take a couple of minutes to read all of Psalm 27 - you can read it here on Bible Gateway. David composed an encompassing word-picture of God's complete and unreserved love for him. If you'd been inspired to write this Psalm - what would you have written? What an incredible invitation to intimacy with God David's captured here. God's invitation to know Him is extended to us - just as generously as it was extended to David. David was a man after God's own heart not because David possessed some God-seeking super-power - but simply because He heard God's invitation - and stepped into it. So can we.
