A Loyal Heart
God honors those who are loyal to Him. He takes great delight in giving favor to those whose hearts are committed and dedicated to Him. Our almighty God is loyal to us in every way; He grants us the opportunity to respond to Him by demonstrating our loyalty to Him. God owns everything. What else can we give to Him to show our appreciation? Consequently, all we can do is offer ourselves to Him fully and freely. In 2 Chronicles 16:9, we find these words:
“The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. What a fool you have been! From now on you will be at war.”
The writer says that God’s eyes are constantly moving, and He sees those who are loyal to Him. This verse speaks of foolish people who pay little or no attention to God’s faithfulness and are consistently out of His will. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter, for it speaks clearly about God’s love and how He deals with His people. The writer makes it clear that we have a choice to make. Hopefully, we have made the choice to offer God a heart that is consistently full of gratitude and dedication. It is my prayer today that God is at the center of our hearts.
