2 Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth…
I. MAN IS A SPECIAL OBJECT OF PROVIDENCE (Genesis 1:26).
II. HOLY MEN A MORE SPECIAL OBJECT OF IT (Psalm 33:18; Psalm 37:23; text).
III. HENCE WILL FOLLOW THAT THE SPIRITS OF GOOD MEN HAVE SUFFICIENT GROUNDS TO BEAR UP IN THEM INNOCENT SUFFERINGS AND STORMS IN THE WORLD (Hebrews 6:10).
IV. HENCE FOLLOWS A CERTAIN SECURITY AGAINST A GOOD MAN'S WANT (Psalm 34:10; 1 Timothy 4:8).
