The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth.
The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. What a fool you have been! From now on you will be at war.”
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus Christ’s matchless and mighty name !
The subject verse from the second book of Chronicles helps us to know what God looks for in us. From the context of the verse, we could see the rise and fall of King Asa. From the chapter, we could see that the heart of King Asa was not upon the Almighty God. Rather he drifted away from the godly living. As we could know from the current verse and also from the following below verse, God searches the hearts of the people.
“I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”Jeremiah 17:10 NIV
Moreover, He searches the whole world for those who are fully committed to Him. He strengthens us so that we could work in his righteousness and according to His will. By His goodness we are all rewarded according to our deeds and conduct. Brethren, we shall have His joy and peace when He is in our hearts. Just like how the King received the joy and peace when he sought God, we shall also set our hearts on the Almighty God. Therefore, let us not veer from the presence of God and be a fool to attract the scathing attack of the enemy. Rather we shall fully submit ourselves to the Omnipotent God, for He shall fight for us.
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”Exodus 14:14 NIV
In Jesus’ matchless and mighty name, give all the praises and honor to the Holy Father. Amen.
