Focused, peaceful affection.

Focused, peaceful affection. Does that describe your heart’s commitment to the Lord? God will show Himself strong on your behalf.

“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.” (2Chr 16:9)

The Hebrew word for loyal is “shalem.” It can mean perfect, complete, whole.  We are all in a progressive growing relationship with Jesus. Paul captured it perfectly.


“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Phil 3:12-14)
