Quarterback Vision

For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9 (NAS)

Between mouthfuls of nachos, we were on the edge of our seats cheering for the Baltimore Ravens against the New England Patriots. The winner would play in Super Bowl XLVII.

The camera zoomed in as Joe Flacco's eyes swept intensely back and forth across the field accurately assessing player positions, even noting what direction they were looking—quarterback vision.

He was looking to find whose attention was focused on him. He needed someone to free himself from all entanglements to complete his purpose—scoring a touchdown for the victory.

Processing the information instantly he completed a pass to Anquan Boldin for a touchdown!

The quarterback has a close relationship with his teammates built on trust. They all support each other and their hearts are united for a common goal.

In the same manner, our Heavenly Father is watchful over us. The Bible says His eyes scan the entire earth searching for whose heart is completely His. Why does He do this? He knows we struggle to reach our goal in this game of life. Often we are thwarted by the enemy on all sides. Our Father looks out for us, and wants to support and offer assistance. He sees the seam—our way of escape from the opposition—so we can arrive at our destination in the best way possible. Touchdown!

 Unlike our earthly quarterback, as great as he is, our Heavenly Father has no blind spots or limitations in His vision, and no one can ever sack Him!

Praise you Father, that you see the entire field and help make the way clear for whose heart belongs to you.
