Quick Hit:  II Chronicles 16:9

 “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.”

What do God’s eyes see when He looks at you?  Is God showing Himself strong on your behalf?  Is your heart loyal to Him?

Whatever we truly desire in our hearts is what we will have.  It is not a matter of what we think we want or even what we say we want, but what we truly want in our hearts is what we will have.  There is an incredible disconnect in most of our lives between the things we say we want (i.e. going on a diet to lose weight) and the things we really desire in our hearts (i.e. eating what we want when we want it).

God is looking for those whose hearts are loyal to Him.  He wants to show Himself to be strong on their behalf.  In fact, He wants to show Himself strong on your behalf!  So here is the question:  Am I, from my heart, being loyal to God or are there things which get in the way of my devotion to Him, things which I love more?

God grants those who truly want Him not only the freedom to choose Him, but maybe more importantly, the strength to be loyal to Him.  Set your heart on Him.  Love Him.  Desire to be loyal to Him with all your heart, soul and mind.  God is looking to show Himself strong for those who do.  Let it be you.
