For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro - St. Martin's In the Desert

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him (2 Chr. 16/9).”

Where does God look for help? He looks for men and women whose hearts are set on him and trust him for all he says he can do. God is exceptionally eager to work mightily for in his world the time is short.
We are waiting to see what God will do through the consecrated souls. He is excited for those who are deeply devoted to him. These are the ones who grasp God’s purposes while exercising faith and humility. These dear souls will continue to let God work his works without hindering him. There is no limit to what God can do with someone who is devoutly surrendered.

It seems that conversion and surrender do not usually occur at the same time. One can convert one day but true surrender comes later, even years later. This is when we find our all in Christ; he becomes our portion. We want nothing else. By God’s grace, we want only the things of God. Have we surrendered our hearts or are we holding out for that one thing we want irrespective of God? By reading the scriptures, we become unspeakably blessed. The Lord is an infinitely lovely Being.
