“The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him” (II Chron. 16:9).
The meaning of this famous passage of Scripture is clear, and its truth has been demonstrated a thousand times over. God is constantly searching for those whom He can bless and use in the fulfilling of His purposes, but for whom, and through whom, does He accomplish His ends?
He does not need the world’s influential giants, for He says in Zech. 4:6: “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” He does not need the world’s great thinkers, for our Lord, while on earth, prayed: “Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Thy sight” (Matt. 11:25,26). Indeed, St. Paul declares, in I Cor. 3:19: “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
No, it is not upon the world’s great ones that God bestows His blessing and power; it is rather upon the humblest believer whose heart is right with Him. Thus it is that by divine inspiration St. Paul wrote to those in ancient Corinth who had trusted Christ as their Savior (I Cor. 1:26-29).
To those of us who believe that God created the Universe from naught all this is perfectly consistent and it gives us confidence that He can bless and use even us. source
