2 Chron. 16:9a 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
I envision God holding the earth in His fingers and has it close to His face as He is scanning the whole earth to find those who are perfect. (that leaves me out, LOL)
In reality look what the word perfect here in the Hebrew means; keeping covenant relationship.... We know that we will never be perfect this side of Heaven, but we are being
God is searching for His creatures who are in the "keeping" of His covenant...remember in the beginning...He originally made Adam to be the "keeper" of the garden.
Adam failed at keeping....we have failed at keeping....BUT GOD...and the power of the Holy Spirit "keeps" us and the Father desires to show Himself strong to those whose hearts have
entered into a covenant relationship with Himself! Isn't it comforting to know He does the keeping of our souls.
May we be INTENTIONAL to honor and obey for there is no other way to happy in Jesus! He does the keeping, He shows Himself strong to us....HE LOVES US SO MUCH!!! EVEN WHEN WE ARE WEAK AND DON'T LOVE OURSELVES HE SAYS, " NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM HIS LOVE!" That is right, not even our mess ups!
Those who truly have been converted, saved, delivered, ransomed, born again, whatever word you prefer to call it...those who are Christ followers bought with His Precious blood are Kept for all eternity!!!!
BE BLESSED, YOUR ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!!!!
With much love for the Brethren!
