When I seek God with my whole heart, in a way that fits me, he promises to listen. He doesn’t just promise to listen, but he promises to respond!
9The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.2 Chronicles 16:9
The other day I received a text from a woman I mentor. Checking in to see how life is going, she said this: “Hoping Jesus is making more progress in my heart than what I am realizing. I feel like ever since I started being proactive in doing heart work, I am robbed of time and so distracted.” As I read her text, I felt my heart quicken. You see, I had just written this post and I knew with certainty that the Lord’s eyes were seeing my friend’s heart. I knew he was strengthening her even in her distraction because her heart is fully committed to him!
The Lord takes a keen interest in what is going on in your heart! He isn’t just willing to listen if you seek him wholeheartedly. He is eager to strengthen you, to turn your sorrow into joy, your weakness into strength, adversity into opportunity. He is with you. He is for you. And he thinks you’re a big deal!
