II Chron. 16:9 The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.
Don’t you just love this truth? The Lord is not idle; He is searching the whole earth so that He may help those who are fully committed to Him. The Lord does not want us to struggle. He does not want us to fall prey to sin because we are weak. He wants us to be strong enough to stand up to Satan and just say no to sin. He wants us to be able to stand up and overcome all the fiery darts Satan hurls our way.
Are you going through a rough time in your life right now? Is your faith strained from all that is going on? Do you wonder where the Lord’s help is at? Or, is Satan messing with your mind and you are questioning whether or not what God says is really true? If you are going through tough times and your faith is weak, let today’s verse sink deep into your heart.
The Lord is on your side. He knows your weaknesses and wants to give you renewed strength. He wants to help you through your tough times. Will you let Him? Don’t let your feelings keep you away from asking Him for help. By faith, turn away from your troubles for a moment and ask the Lord for strength to keep on trusting and believing. He wants to do it for you, but He won’t do it without your permission. So, just ask Him to draw near. He will do it, I promise. Do not let up. Keep on asking until you know that the Lord is near and has done what He has promised to do for you.
The Lord works best in us when we are fully committed to Him. He demands the total allegiance of our hearts. He demands that we love Him with the very best of our hearts, minds, and souls. Stay fully committed to the Lord and He will always be near to help you in your times of need.
