For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chron 16:9 NASB
I've always loved this verse, yet how many times do Christians read it and go "oh, that's so nice and comforting" and then just go on with their lives and continue their prayers and petitions to God, begging Him to intervene on their behalf?
Sometimes we have this picture in our mind (or at least I do) of God sitting on His throne in heaven, angels all around Him, maybe a choir singing, lots of brightness and rainbows and a crystal lake and flashing lightning like is described in the Bible. He's up there and we are here and He's got so much to deal with and so many lives to keep track of, how does He ever remember us?
But this verse describes a different sort of God. He's not sitting there like some magistrate only dealing with the big events on earth, He's actually peering down from Heaven searching EVERY heart. Can you imagine? Heart after heart after heart. I can't imagine some of the depravity He sees. What is He looking for? Someone who truly loves Him and puts Him first in their life. Not second or third after their spouse, kids, job, money, health, fame... but FIRST. Someone whose heart is completely His.
Sometimes we try so hard to get God's attention. We pray and pray and pray and ask others to pray and we get on our knees and beg God to help us. When in truth, God is actually seeking someone whom He can help. The verse says He's seeking someone whom he can STRONGLY SUPPORT! Good grief, I don't know about you, but I sure could use some strong support from the Creator of the Universe, the Almighty God. How about you?
So, stop begging, stop seeking, and make your heart completely His. He's looking for you! He wants to Strongly Support you.
The Almighty's eyes stop roving. They land on you. He smiles and tells the angel beside Him, "Finally, there, do you see (insert your name)? Their heart is completely mine. Then He rubs His hands together. "Now, watch how strongly I will help them!".
