Love this verse: in 2 Chronicles 16:

9 For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.

How comforting to think that God is actively searching for people to give us the strength to do His will. I often think of my relationship with God as me seeking Him out as the people did in this passage. It really encourages and spurs me to seek Him even more to realise that He is look for my heart too. Its almost like He meets us halfway. Thank you Lord.

The comment above mine is odd. [I suspect it's spam.]

I so appreciated today's meditation, especially the proverb about alcohol. I have been a member of AA for over 20 years, and it was actually my pathway to deeper Christianity. I was definitely a Christian, even in the throes of my alcoholism--- one of my favorite things to do at night was curl up with the Bible, a bottle of wine and my cigarettes. ( I look back on that picture now and laugh! ) But of course, Christ's call is different upon everyone, and I am so thankful that even in the midst of my sin [drinking not a sin for everyone, but He definitely showed it was for me] Christ was there, reaching out to me, loving me, letting me learn more of Him and His ways. I am so thankful that this was my path, otherwise I might be such a Pharisee today! He has provided for me a beautiful life, complete with dear husband, precious children, and abiding faith; and without my besetting sins, I really think I may have fallen into a life of deeper unrepentant sin (pride) and not ever gotten to know the real Jesus. At any rate, though I don't comment often, I love the daily Bible blog and thank you for your continual ministry to us!

Thanks Eve. Great testimony !! Yeah that definitely looks like spam :(

Mike, I would like to respond to your comments about alcohol. I belong to a group call Celebrate Recovery. It is the same as N.A. an A.A except we define who the higher power is. That Higher power is Jesus Christ.Our pastor's take on alcohol is this, if alcohol can be addictive and cause so much trouble, then why use it. Would it not be better to abstain? Alcohol may not affect one person but to the next he or she becomes an alcoholic. We do not know how it will affect us until we try it. Why do something if it could possibly enslave you.
