The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. 2 Chronicles 16:9a
Fact: God wants to bless you. HE DOES!
However, God cannot and will not bless half-hearted, self-centered, attempts to gain His blessings. He knows us. He knows our hearts. So often we want God to move on our behalf without us changing anything. We treat Him as if He owes us. This couldn’t be more wrong.
This little verse speaks clearly to what is required for blessing: “hearts fully committed to Him” — this means that we must desire and endeavor to: KNOW and DO His will in ALL things.
1. To KNOW His will requires Bible Study, prayer and the continual guidance of the Holy Spirit.
2. To DO His will in ALL things will require a servant’s heart, single-focus to please God not man and courage.
Sound too hard?? Well, God wants to help you do it!
“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Philippians 2:13
Yes, God helps us please Him because He loves to bless us! SO humbling!
Let’s be found by the SEARCH of God!
We can NEVER out-bless God!
