Looking Into Hearts

What does God see when He looks into our heart? Do we shine with the joy of true surrender to Him? 2 Chronicles 16:9 says, "For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His." God is looking for hearts that are fully His and totally dependent on Him. How do we keep our heart like this? We keep our quiet time with Him and talk with Him about the issues of our life. When we get in a hurry, when we're so pressured by all of the commitments around us, so stressed out, and so preoccupied with everything else going on in our life, then we're in grave danger of succumbing to temptation and pride.

The Lord's eyes are searching the earth. When He sees you meditating on His Word, taking time to communicate with Him through prayer, He stops. He has found what He's looking for--a heart that is fully His.
