Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Chronicles 16:9 (KJV); For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
God is willing and eager to show Himself as strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. He is on the look out for such men and women.
The question then is, what is a perfect heart?
Some assume that this perfect heart is that of a man who is morally upright. Morality is good and important but the world is full of moral atheists. They are not perfect in His sight. There are those who pray and fast faithfully but they do not believe God. They never receive answers because they are wanting in the perfection that God desires in the heart of a man.
A perfect heart is a heart of faith because there is no perfection in God without faith.
This perfection is the difference between those who seek God and those whom God seeks.
While there are people on mountaintops seeking Him vehemently yet He seems to retreat further away from them, God is on the other hand eagerly looking for those that have made up their minds to believe Him no matter the circumstances of their lives. He is searching for that man and woman who has counted the cost, laid his or her heart on the altar and is ready for the fire.
This is why faith is the basis of all we do, it is the life force of the Christian.
Make the choice to believe God today. Believe that He is using You. Believe that You are taught of Him. Believe that You are strong in Him. Believe that He has made you all that He wants you to be.

GOLDEN NUGGET: A perfect heart is a heart of faith because there is no perfection in God without faith. This perfection is the difference between those who seek God and those whom God seeks.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I am a believer and I believe hard! I live a life on the planes of faith with my heart sold out and committed to Your plans and desires. By faith I conquer and have great exploits. To the glory of Your name, Amen.
