We know that God is always watching over us, looking on at our daily lives. Thankfully, He is not just an onlooker but is inextricably involved in our lives. Maybe you’ve never thought about this, but when God is watching us, what is He looking for? I love the fairly obscure scripture found in II Chronicles 16:9 “The Lord searches all the earth for people who have given themselves completely to him. He wants to make them strong.” (NCV) Pretty clear, isn’t it? He is looking for people who are committed to Him. He wants to bless those people.
What does God think when He looks at me, and you? I don’t intend this to be a condemning thing. I hope He is pleased with what He sees and, as a result, makes us strong.
Another solid reason to give ourselves completely to God.
