"For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him."
This verse gives me a picture God eagerly waiting and watching for the moment He hears us declare our trust in Him. He watches, so He can spectacularly display His power on our behalf. He listens to every word we speak—those
words that agree with His words, so He can lose His power and blessings for
benefit. Does He wait in vain? Are we walking on water or are we looking at the
storms in fear?
We might say, ‘how sad God must be with the results of our poor response’, but I don’t believe that is how God reacts. The God I know, is so longsuffering and
patient, that it is often hard to comprehend just how great His love is. I reflect back to the time when my children were young. I wanted them to learn certain things too, and I would teach them, waiting for them to understand and imitate—it wasn’t a condemning wait, it was a loving wait, because I understood they were immature, and knew one day they would finally get it, then I would rejoice with them. This, and so much more is how I believe our Heavenly Father waits and watches for us to be loyal to Him. To finally have it sink deep within us so we put our trust in Him, and stand firm in the faith that He has given to
us—We truly believe in Him. Just as I seen and rejoiced with my children, so our
Heavenly Father also rejoices with us, when we finally put our total trust in Him. We believe His promises are for now, on this earth. II Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in victory in Christ, and through us defuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.” May the Holy Spirit stir us up and give us the boldness we need to make a stand for You Lord—May we put our trust in You.
Father, thank You for Your patience with us, may our returned love and joy be as satisfying to You as You have been to us. Help us to grow daily in Your Word and Your ways so our trust will always be with You LORD and we will want no
