“The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him…….” 2 Chronicles 16:9
God seeks those whose heart is completely His. God ‘is looking for men and women whose hearts are completely His—completely. That means there are no locked closets. Nothing’s been swept under the rugs. This means when you do wrong, you admit it and immediately come to terms with it. You’re grieved over wrong. You’re concerned about those things that displease Him. You long to please Him in your actions. You care about the motivations behind your actions.
What motivates you? Are you jealous for God’s glory? Do you desire Him above all things? Do you libe in your feelings or your beliefs?
What joy to know that, like David, we can become men and women after God’s own heart. The Bible says, ‘God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (1 Samuel. 16:7). What does God see when He looks at your heart?
