“For the eyes of God roam throughout the earth to show Himself strong for those whose hearts are completely His. You have been foolish in this matter. Therefore, you will have wars from now on.” – 2Chronicles 16:9
“King Asa had experienced God’s awesome power on his behalf when he faced a large, menacing army in Ethiopia (2Chron. 14:9). God gave Asa victory, despite the overwhelming odds he faced. Yet, the next time Asa faced an enemy he failed to trust God. Even though this latter army was smaller than the one he’d faced before… and that God had defeated before, Asa’s faith in God was wavering. God encouraged to take courage in knowing God never rests nor sleeps. He is never distracted. Instead, He diligently seeks those whose hearts are completely committed to Him.
“If you are committed to God, you won’t have to look for Him; He is already looking for you!
“Life’s challenges can sometimes seem impossible. Do you feel you’re too weak to fight the battle? Don’t give up! Keep your heart loyal to God, for He constantly watched over you, and He wants to demonstrate His strength in your life! God is willing… and just as capable… to give you victory in your current situation as He has been in your past.
“The question is not whether God is looking for His people, but whether His people are looking for Him. Take comfort in God’s promise that He watched over you and He wants to give you victory.”
