Summary: If we want God’s strong support, it begins with cultivating a heart that is wholly and unconditionally His.
2 Chronicles 16:9 tell us, “For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.”
God is looking for someone. His eyes are searching across the earth. He is looking for someone to strongly support. Out of a sea of people, God is on the lookout for someone whose heart is completely His. The “Upside Down Kingdom” values a committed heart more than a strong mind or back. If we want His strong support, it begins with cultivating a heart that is wholly and unconditionally His.
As the old hymn declares, “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it.” Having a heart that is completely His is an ongoing pursuit, a destination never reached. Hebrews 10:14 reads, “For by a single offering He has perfected for all time those who are being perfected.” There is a state of being perfect while being perfected. From a positional standpoint, we are perfect. From a process standpoint, we are being made perfect.
Let not your heart be saddened, knowing your heart is far from completely His. Pause today, raise your hand and tell God your heart is His, perfectly and imperfectly His. Start today knowing that God’s eyes are searching; His strong support awaits you.
