"[Jehovah's] eyes are roving about through all the earth to show his strength in behalf of those whose heart is complete toward him." (2 Chronicles 16:9)

Jehovah is the perfect Father. He knows us so well that he is aware even of the "inclination of [our] thoughts." (1 Chronicles 28:9) However, he does not examine us merely in order to find fault. (Psalm 11:4; 130:3) Rather, he lovingly wants to protect us from anything that might damage our relationship with him or harm our prospects for gaining everlasting life. (Psalm 25:8-10, 12, 13) Jehovah is matchless in power and sees all. For that reason, he can come to the aid of his loyal ones whenever they call on him, and he can support them during their trials. Note that Jehovah uses his strength in behalf of those who serve him with a complete heart, a heart that is pure and sincere in motive. He shows no such concern for those who are deceitful or hypocritical.—Joshua 7:1, 20, 21, 25; Proverbs 1:23-33.
