Supported by the living God

A thought form this morning's quiet time:

Asa was a King who at first relied on the LORD. By doing so he won great victories. However he later came to rely instead on men - in his case, the Syrian army as allies.

In that context consider 2 Chronicles 16v9:
"For the eyes of the Lord, move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely his" (NASB).
What encouragement to those who face difficulties as they seek to win victories in the establishment of God's kingdom. If you're heart is right; if you are repentance toward God and reliant on God, then you can be assured that you are one of those he looks out for, and that you have his support as you seek to glorify his Son. Do hang onto that truth.
