“For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.”  2 Chronicles 16:9. God’s choices often seem so illogical from our point of view. We tell ourselves it can’t possibly be what He really means. After all, why would He single out a sun-withered, eighty year old shepherd to face down one of the mightiest kings in the world? Moses had been out to pasture for forty years. He had completely lost touch with his people. Admit it, when we think about it, Moses hardly seems a likely prospect for the job of delivering an entire people group from the clutches of a mighty nation does he? And what of us? When we feel the stirring or the prompting of the Holy Spirit in our heart, how often do we think: “God wouldn’t really want me to do …..………. would He? God’s eyes roam across the planet to find specific individuals whose hearts are just right for a particular task He has in mind. And when He finds them, watch out! He plunges them into the stream of action, upholding them with His mighty hand. Are we willing to be obedient to God’s leading, trusting Him to equip us for the task? Let our prayer be: Yes Lord, I am willing, and I trust You to lead and guide my steps, rather than ask ‘why me’? Proverbs 3:5-6 says: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
