Radar, for the military, and for airports, sweeps across the skies, looking for what might be an incoming intrusion in the local airspace they are defending.
The same goes for naval ships on the high seas. Underwater, submarines use sonar to determine direction and distance between them and other submarines as well as ships on the surface of the sea.
Also Air Force planes, and satellites in space, fly all over the world to search out threats that can present themselves that otherwise would have gone undetected.
All this involves readiness for the possibility of battle for the defence of our nation.
Now hear The Word of The LORD:
“The eyes of The LORD roam to and fro throughout the whole earth, seeking those whose hearts are steadfast toward Him, to show Himself strong in your behalf.” 2 Chronicles 16:9.
“The eyes of The LORD are upon the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.” Psalm 34:15.
He is The LORD Who Sees, (Jehovah Jireh, El Roi), and The LORD Who Knows (El Deah).
“May The LORD answer you when you are in distress, may the Name of the God of Jacob protect you. May He send you help from the sanctuary, and grant you support from Zion.
May He remember all of your sacrifices, and accept all your burnt offerings. May He give to you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed. May we shout for joy over your victory, (Yahweh Nissi) and lift up our banners in the Name of our God. May The LORD grant all your requests.
Now this I know, that The LORD gives victory to His anointed. He answers from His Heavenly Sanctuary with the victorious power of His right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we trust in the Name of The LORD our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm. Lord, give victory to the King! Answer us when we call.” Psalm 20:1-9.
Your King hears everything you say and is answering you with the saving strength of His Right Hand.
He is giving you the anointing to stand strong in the midst of your waiting upon Him.
There is nothing that will outlast your anointed confidence in The LORD. For He is faithful Who promised, and He will do it.
“Now, Faith is the assurance of things hoped for. it is the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrew 11:1.
