“Search for Jehovah and His StrengthÂ” ?????? "The eyes of Jehovah are roving about through all the earth to show his strength in behalf of those whose heart is complete toward him."Â—2 Chron. 16:9. ?????? God always uses his power for good. Â“As regards Jehovah, his eyes are roving about through all the earth to show his strength in behalf of those whose heart is complete toward him.Â” (2 Chronicles 16:9) Jehovah directs his power in a controlled way. Patience holds back GodÂ’s execution of the wicked to give them the opportunity to repent. Love moves him to make the sun shine upon all kinds of menÂ—righteous and unrighteous. Justice will move him finally to use his unlimited power to bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, Satan the Devil.Â—Matthew 5:44, 45; Hebrews 2:14; 2 Peter 3:9. ?????? Jehovah can empower his servants as well as protect them. The Bible urges us to Â“search for Jehovah and his strength.Â” (Psalm 105:4) Why? Because when we do things in GodÂ’s strength, our power will be used for the benefit, rather than the harm, of others. Nowhere do we find a better example of this than in Jesus Christ, who performed many miracles in Â“JehovahÂ’s power.Â” (Luke 5:17) Jesus could have dedicated himself to becoming rich, famous, or even an all-powerful king. (Luke 4:5-7) Instead, he used the power God gave him to train and to teach, to help and to heal. (Mark 7:37; John 7:46) What a fine example for us! ?????? 1?? How do we draw on GodÂ’s strength? First of all, we have to ask for it in prayer.Â 2?? Second, we can draw spiritual strength from the Bible. (Hebrews 4:12)Â 3?? Third, we draw strength from Jehovah through Christian association. Paul encouraged Christians to attend meetings regularly in order to Â“incite to love and fine worksÂ” and to encourage one another. (Hebrews 10:24, 25)Â Jehovah gives power to his servants when they carry out their ministry. We read in IsaiahÂ’s prophecy: Â“He is giving to the tired one power; and to the one without dynamic energy he makes full might abound. . . . Those who are hoping in Jehovah will regain power. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not tire out.Â” (Isaiah 40:29-31) ?????? https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2000163?q=2+chron+16%3A9&p=par
