Application for Jan 12-13, 2012 :: 2 Chronicles 16:9

2 Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him…

Tom, one of the song writers and producers of Fighter Verse Songs, has pointed out to me that this Verse leaves out some important context.

At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him, “Because you relied on the king of Syria, and did not rely on the LORD your God, the army of the king of Syria has escaped you. Were not the Ethiopians and the Libyans a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet because you relied on the LORD, he gave them into your hand. For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him. You have done foolishly in this, for from now on you will have wars.” Then Asa was angry with the seer and put him in the stocks in prison, for he was in a rage with him because of this. And Asa inflicted cruelties upon some of the people at the same time. (2 Chronicles 16:7-10 ESV)

Do you see? King Asa started well, and trusted in God – and God gave him ‘strong support’. But he stopped doing that and relied on more earthly things. And God removed his support.

Do you want the support of God, who can stop raging armies? Is your heart blameless?

Seek God. Seek God’s will. Pray for the strength to do God’s will.
