Look to Me and My strength; seek My Face always. While you are seeking Me, I want you to let your heart rejoice. This will strengthen our Love-relationship. Imagine an engaged couple who are passionately in love. When the man goes to visit his betrothed, she doesn’t open the door and say blandly, “Oh, it’s you.” Nor does he look past her as if she were invisible and say, “What do you have to eat?” Rather, their hearts rejoice because they are together. You are My betrothed, and I am the forever-Lover of your soul. When you seek My Face, take time to remember who I am—King of the universe—and rejoice in the astonishing Love I have for you. This will bring Power to your prayers as well as Joy to your heart.
I also want you to glory in My holy Name. My Name is holy because it represents Me and I am holy—perfect in all My ways. My Name is above every name, yet you may use it freely to commune with Me and worship Me joyously. You are indeed privileged to have such easy access to Me. Some people glory in their wealth, achievements, beauty, fame; but I invite you to glory in Me—your Savior, Lord, and intimate Friend. Glorifying Me will strengthen and delight you. Look to Me and My strength. Enjoy My loving Presence more and more.
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.

I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.
