A Loyal Heart

2 Chron. 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 loyal to Him...Loyalty seems to be a thing of the past. Anymore, people are out for what is best for themselves. If it is in their best interests to sell someone out, they do it. If they work a job and they don't like something, their out of there. If they attend a church or work for a ministry and they don't feel that they are getting ahead fast enough or being allowed to use their gifts the way they want, they look for something better. Where is the loyalty? Webster's Dictionary defines loyal as - faithful to one's country, friends, ideals. God looks upon our heart and He is looking for our loyalty to Him. He wants to show you and I the great things He has planned for our lives, but He is looking for our faithfulness in the little things. He is looking for those who will go the extra mile. Those who put the interests of others above their own. He is waiting for His children to step up, sell out, press in, believe, stand firm, hold on and be a person who is loyal and faithful to Him.
