Focus: 2 Chronicles 16:9 - KJV
9. 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. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
2 Chronicles 16:6-9
God loves them that are righteous and place reliance on Him. It is great disservice unto God to leave Him aside to seek help from another particularly because there is none other greater or more powerful than Him. Man easily forgets all the exploits the Lord had seen him through. Some even more serious and tragic than the present seeming predicament. Rather than return to the Lord, they go seeking help where it does not exist. What a tragedy? Some even assume God is slow in acting. They will rather patronize other media that ”act instantly”. But God sees these things and He is not happy about them. If we claim we are on the side of the Lord why can’t we trust Him completely? From the days of Moses, Israel had enjoyed victory from the help of God against offending nations. It did not matter how strong and mighty the opposition appeared, because God is the Almighty, He always brought His might to bear for them when they remained on His side. But Asa had only a little skirmish with Israel as King of Judah. Alas, rather than seek the help of God, he went to seek help from Syria. For this, he suffered great consequences in abandoning God to seek help from the arm of flesh.
Today, God is testing you and I: per adventure in the current hardship, we will stick with Him and wait only on Him for help. Looking for help elsewhere is a vote of no confidence in God. If we pass such vote, God will yield up space for us to operate as we will. That is in no way beneficial because, it is that He had been on our side that we are still standing. Yet, His eyes are looking to and fro the earth ascertaining from thoughts and actions who is on His side.
SOLUTION: Never give up on God. Lasting faith is key to making it to the end. For us to enjoy God fully, we must acknowledge that He is and a rewarder of them that DILIGENTLY seek Him.
The Lord will rise to your help and make you overcome every challenge confronting you in Jesus name. you will not miss it in Jesus name. Every enticement to seek help outside God is chattered for your sake in Jesus name. Shine on beloved.
