2 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..."

This verse is encouraging! It tells me that God is eagerly looking for those who need strength and look to Him. At the same time, the entire chapter of 1 Chronicles 16 is encouraging, but in a different way. It teaches me that God is all the strength I need and that He is willing to help me if I trust in Him alone. I sure need to hear these words today - a day full of anxiety, discouragement, and discontentment. Be my strength, Lord, to help me endure times that are not exactly fun.
