Can't really comment on any of the other comments because I feel like we are talking about two totally different conversations.
What do you think it means for God turns His face from people?
I will tell you what it doesn't mean.
It doesn't mean God has stopped loving you.
It doesn't always mean you did anything grossly wrong.
It is God's way to call us back into a closer relationship with Him, by having us notice that we no longer has His face upon us.
When we have His face upon us the world is clearer, our hearts freer. It is easier to see the path we should tread for His light is bright.
It is the difference between day and night.
I am sorry if you don't understand what I am trying to say, but to say that we are somehow more beloved than David. To say that God no longer uses the same method of correction today as He did in the Old testatment, just rings as false. His Holy Spirit guided His prophets back then also.
If not by turning His face from us, how does God chaste and correct you when you have done wrong?
Or do you hold to the spoiled brat philosophy of a make believe God that allows his kids to do whatever makes them "happy"? Pull the legs off the crickets, pat on the head and have a lolipop? (yeah sarcasm, I don't like spoiled brats. Especially on the playground when the bigger kids push littler ones off and their parents say nothing)
