Although he did not remove the high places from Israel, Asa's heart was fully committed [to the LORD] all his life. (2 Chronicles 15:17)

 

Hearts fully committed to the Lord are hard to find, but such have a special blessing from the Lord. He is always there to strengthen them in times of trouble and distress.

 

The Psalmist says:

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love. (Psalm 33:18)

Again in Psalm 34, we read,

The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry. (Psalm 34:15)

 

Commitment is difficult but it pays dividends. Athletes who win top spots really put in a lot of hard work to achieve success.

 

The Apostle Paul referring to this writes:

No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs - he wants to please his commanding officer. Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor's crown unless he competes according to the rules. (2 Timothy 2:4,5)

 

Writing to the church at Corinth, Paul again says,

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. (1 Corinthians 9:25)

 

That's what all of us believers are hoping for! Aren't we? A crown that will last for ever. And a crown that will last forever is what we will receive--that is--if our hearts are committed to the Lord.
