God is looking for yielded ones

In Matthew 11:12, Jesus said,  “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.”

 In 2 Chronicles 16:9, the Revised Standard Version we read  “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show his might in behalf of those whose heart is blameless toward him.”

God is looking for people through whom He can show himself strong. How does He show himself strong? By working through the people who are willing to be yielded so that He can show himself strong through them. And the Bible says God is actually looking around the earth for someone through whom He can show himself strong.

If his eyes were upon your city today, would He find you crying out, “God! Let your eye fall on me, for I want to be totally yielded. I want to be that person through whom you can show yourself strong. I want to be the coin in your pocket for you to spend any way you want. I want your glory to rest on me. I want to be the donkey that you ride on. I just want to be yielded, God, and I want to believe that I can be the person that you clothe yourself with. I want to believe, God, that I can be mightily used in your kingdom. God, in my heart I am saying to you, please, look upon me and let your grace fall upon me because I want to reveal your glory. Show yourself strong through my life.”
