GOD WILL SHOW HIS STRENGTH!
"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong on the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him." 2Chronicles 16:9
IN JESUS TODAY!
In Genesis 1:2 we read that the Holy Spirit of God moves about the face of the waters,
“And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:2b
God is always on the move, in other words he is not a God that is stationary, fails to move, or only moves sometimes. God is always at work! His eyes see everything, there is nothing that he does not know, and there is nothing that is in the heart or life of man that he has forgotten to take into account. Now the real question is, "whose heart is perfect toward him."?
NOT QUITE PERFECT…?
Mankind has their own list of legalistic, judgmental views as to whose heart is perfect, and this certainly would have disqualified most of the people that we read about in the Bible, imperfect people such as Lot, Job, Paul, Peter, and even Jesus himself who was perfect in all things, he would have been disqualified, because he was not like them who are easily finding fault. A perfect heart for God is one that desires what God desires, grieves over what God grieves about, and is vexed about the things that God is hurt about. A perfect heart toward God is a heart that presses forward, not looking at faults or failures as a reason to disqualify, but rather as a reason to consider one.
With God these are those that have a perfect heart toward him because they need him. We need Jesus and this realization and confession, is what having a perfect heart toward God is about!
Save us, O Lord, we are in need of you. Look not upon us as able without you, but rather as unable to do anything on our own! We all fall short Lord, and we are reaching out to you as imperfect people who need you to save us from the effects of this world and ourselves.
Save Us O God!
