“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 Chronicles 16:9
This may be difficult for some to admit, but the bottom line is, all of us enjoy applause: whether on the athletic field, the stage, the classroom, or in the more insignificant events of life. Every one of us enjoys being praised. Our confidence is bolstered when a person of authority, or anyone we respect, supports us and is on our side. Getting that pat on the back, or that word of encouragement, makes us want to do even better. We work harder. We take on our problems with more determination and vigor. We are infused with want to.
Scripture reminds us that God wants to be our cheerleader. The Creator of this Universe desires to support us, and support us strongly. He is simply looking for that person who will allow Him to be God. He wants all our hearts…all the time…not just when we think we need Him. He is even looking for us. It is not a question of being found by God; He knows exactly where we are! It is a matter of completely giving our heart to Him. With Jesus Christ on our side, we have it all.
