KNOW ME AND LEAD ME!
Psalm 139:23-24 – Devotional
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
When I was a juvenile probation officer (ages ago), I frequently asked my probationers if they knew anything about reports of their misdeeds. Their response was frequently; “Search me?” That is not the message the Psalmist intends.
The Psalmist is sincerely asking the Lord to give him a heart examination to reveal the hidden issues that would cause a conflict between him and his Lord. He even asks the Lord to test him and try him. That means turning up the heat! Ouch!
We need that openness in our own prayer life in which we yield our innermost being to the Great Heart Specialist (the Lord) who knows the thoughts and intents of our heart.
After our heart examination we are to seek the leadership of the Lord for our life. Are we doing that? Are we so committed to the Lord that we will do what He says and go where He leads? I want that for my life.
Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and be a blessing!
