Search Me God and Know My Heart, Psalm 139:23-24

23Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts;24and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.

Daily Reflection

God knows me best.  He knows what is in my heart; my anxious and calming thoughts; my tears and laughter; my joys and sorrows; my selfishness and my loss of control, but still I question: does He really know me and forgive me or is it that I want to believe that He does?  Are these sinful thoughts on my part or am I asking too much of God for forgiveness?

I ask Him to show me signs that cause Him pain, so I can do better and walk the path He wants me to walk – the path of righteousness.

I know I have caused much pain in God’s eyes for not following His “plan for me” but it is not because I intentionally desire this, but because I become too busy in my own selfish ways.

I believe God has a vision for my life and is involved in every part of this life.  I feel Him close and He is continuing to lead me to an everlasting journey.  Am I worthy of His (God’s) loyalty?  Pray that I am!

Daily Prayer

Be near me, O God.  Stay close and free me of my sinful ways.  Lead me through each day and night, so I may walk with you on this everlasting path to righteousness.  Amen.
