2 Chronicles 16:9-10

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. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.” 10 Then Asa was angry with the seer, and put him in prison, for he was enraged at him because of this. And Asa oppressed some of the people at that time.



The eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.

The eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His.

2 Chronicles 16:7-8

7 And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him: “Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand. 8 Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand.



When we rely on the Lord, He will deliver them into our hand.
When we rely on the Lord, He will place them in our hand.

2 Chronicles 15:10-15

10 So they gathered together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa. 11 And they offered to the Lord [d]at that time seven hundred bulls and seven thousand sheep from the spoil they had brought. 12 Then they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul; 13 and whoever would not seek the Lord God of Israel was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. 14 Then they took an oath before the Lord with a loud voice, with shouting and trumpets and rams’ horns. 15 And all Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart and sought Him with all their soul; and He was found by them, and the Lord gave them rest all around.



All Judah rejoiced about the oath because they had sworn it wholeheartedly.
All Judah rejoiced over the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart.

They sought God eagerly, and He was found by them.
They had sought God with their whole heart, and He let them find Him.

So the Lord gave them rest on every side.
