Strong on our behalf


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 perfect (peaceable, friendly) toward Him. (The words God speaks to us are relational)

God sees a fond heart towards himself as the ground and soil that allows entry for a mustard seed of faith to grow into acts of creative faith.

This is where faith begins, and this is where it stays.
Colossians 2:6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, ‘Received’ and ‘walk’ are highly relational words.

Trying too hard to have faith can make a person restless rather than restful. Jesus has told us that we are his friends, alongside him, who helps us as we wait for him, wherever we are in whatever circumstances with a new kind of hope for a new kind of faith.
John 15:15 I'm no longer calling you servants because servants don't understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I've named you friends because I've let you in on everything I've heard from the Father.

1Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
1Corinthians 4.22 … things present or things to come—all are yours. And you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.

This becomes the expectation of discovering God’s awareness and consideration of our neediness. Things happen that only he could arrange. We begin to realize how mindful of us he is. Hebrews 2:5

God’s thoughts towards us are intentional. We become his thought of us as we flow with him.
Psalm 139.17 How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can't even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!
