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 in search of a man with a perfect heart.
What is a perfect heart? It is a heart defined by faith.
Therefore, a man whose heart is perfect before God is a man of faith.
If the eyes of the Lord run to and fro searching for a man with a perfect heart, it means that God is searching for men of faith.
The law of faith has a pivotal place in our lives. By grace we are saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8); We walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
When we pray, it is by faith because whoever comes to God must know that He is and is a rewarder of those who seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). Our giving, fasting and service to God must begin in and be sustained by faith.
God is not searching for men of prayer, He is looking for men of faith praying; He is not only seeking for men that serve diligently but for men of faith in deep service to Him; He is not only looking for men who give to the kingdom but men whose faith leads them to give.
In Luke 18:8, the scripture asks the question, “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
It is men of faith that are found by God.

GOLDEN NUGGET: A man whose heart is perfect before God is a man of faith. If the eyes of the Lord run to and fro searching for a man with a perfect heart, it means that God is in search of men of faith.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You because I am a child and a seed of faith. Every day, I see its fruits in my life and in everything that I do. My spirit is increasingly enlarged in the liberties of what You can do, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
