He Searches For You
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. (2 Chronicles 16:9, KJV)
Do you realize that God’s eyes are constantly scanning the earth? He longs to show Himself strong on your behalf. He’s looking for hearts that are perfect toward Him. Now you may be thinking, “But what if I make some mistakes? Does that mean God’s eyes are going to pass by me?” No. In this verse, that word “perfect” means “devoted, consecrated and dedicated.” He’s looking for hearts that are faithful to Him and desire to please Him in everything. Having a perfect heart means that He is first place in your life, and you are looking for ways to show His love and be a blessing to others.
In the Bible, David was a man after God’s own heart. David didn’t do everything perfectly. In fact, he made a lot of mistakes, but He always repented and sought to do things God’s way. When David made a mistake, he didn’t run from God; he ran to God. He chose forgiveness, and he chose to show kindness to those who had wronged him. He said in the Psalms, “Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.”
David put the Word of God first and let it shape his character, and he had the perfect heart that God was searching for.
Today, I believe God is searching for you and longs to show Himself strong on your behalf. He has good plans for you—plans to prosper you, plans to bless you and give you hope for your future. Keep your heart open, keep being faithful, and keep your eyes set on Him. When you search for Him with all your heart, you will find Him and experience His life, peace and blessing now and forevermore!
