As I read this verse a couple of months ago, my mind started to wander…and ponder.
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 NLT)
Why would those who are fully committed to Him need to be strengthened? Could it be God has special assignments for those who are fully committed to Him? Maybe things that require a little adventure, a new experience, and even a time of stretching? Wouldn’t any of those situations certainly require more strength?
When God opens the door to new experiences, He calls us to be adventurous. If you’re embarking on something new for the Lord in your life right now, you can rest assured He has prepared you for it, making you stronger, more bold and confident in your journey.
Are you fully committed to God? Are you an adventurer? I think those two go together. When we’re fully committed, He calls us to do things out of our comfort zone. He leads us into uncharted waters, so to speak. He does that so we can learn to depend on Him completely. When we feel ill-equipped for His work, we rely on His strength and guidance.
Our God is so big, He has the power and strength for anything…and everything. If we rely on Him, He will accomplish whatever He’s bringing us to do.
Praise Him, y’all. He’s such a spectacular God!
