Strong Support

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

Some think that God is indifferent to what goes on in the earth. I’m not one of them. After all, the earth is His to begin with, which, I think, makes Him interested in what happens here. The prophet Zechariah wrote that the eyes of the Lord “scan to and fro throughout the whole earth” [4.10], implying that He’s looking in every direction, or He sees everything, or nothing escapes His attention.

Not only that, but it appears that He is particularly interested in those who seek Him. The Psalmist said, “The LORD looks down from heaven on the entire human race; He looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God” [14.2]. When He sees them, He takes a specific course of action; He supports them, protects them, supplies them, strengthens them, and lifts them up when they fall.

That display of interest from God is inspired by those who are faithful, whose hearts are right (not perfect) toward Him. When we seek Him, He responds accordingly. He has seen your heart, your loyalty and faithfulness. Therefore, get ready for His support, strength, and help to come your way.

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is right toward Him. 2 Chronicles 16.9
