Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Are you allowing the Father to search your heart?
Often you have thoughts you feel are perfectly okay. You follow those thoughts through to actions, interactions and decisions. Sometimes, when you look back, the end results of your actions, interactions and/or decisions are not what you thought they would be. You find yourself saying “it seemed like a good idea at the time”. It is great to have the Heavenly Father help you see what really lies in your thoughts. You don’t have to keep making decisions without guidance. All you have to do is ask.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Heavenly Father, I ask You to search me through and through. Please expose those secret and hidden things in me that drive my behavior. Shine the light on those emotional habits that end in my disappointment and hurt. Lead me to a place in You that stands above anything else in my life. Do in me what You have to do so You are glorified…
