“The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9a)
God searches and seeks us out. He wants to make sure we have everything we need. When we are committed to Him, He knows we will need His strength.
God knows He is not the only one looking at His people. “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 NLT)
God does not want Satan to have even one piece of your heart. He wants your whole heart! “But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!” (Revelation 3:16 NLT)
He wants to bless all His children who are all in. Do not have one part of you set towards eternity, and the other in the world. You will fall. Look to God and commit your heart because you need strength that surpasses your own to live out your life for Him.
Prayer: Thank you for seeking to empower me with Your strength. My heart is altogether yours. Amen.
