Search My Heart

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalms 139:23-24

I must admit that I was not ready for God’s answer to the prayer to search my heart.  Even so, it is our Heavenly Father’s desire that none of us perish. Because God has plans of hope and a future for each of us, He will expose the character traits and sins that prevent us from living holy, and receiving our reward of eternal life. 

God is love! We are never left alone, nor do we have to figure out which path to take. God lovingly extends his grace and mercies, and the Holy Spirit leads and guides us during our spiritual transformation.

Sanctification is a daily and life-long journey. Every day we pray for forgiveness and the strength to do our Father’s will. Studying the Bible reveals our sins along with God’s answer for us to be victorious overcomers. Prayer keeps us connected to our Spiritual team. Jesus serves as our Heavenly Intercessor, presenting us as forgiven to God.

Likewise, the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. Romans 8:26. We may not understand the Holy Spirit, still, faithfully believe that He is the third person of the Trinity who has the unlimited power to help, teach, guide, and comfort all who ask to be anointed in Jesus’ name.

Bible study: Psalm 139

Prayer: God, we ask you to search our hearts. Please forgive our sins, cleanse us from all unrighteousness, and fill us with the Holy Spirit. We ask this prayer in the Worthy Name of Jesus. Amen.
