Psalm 139: 23, 24.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
What an awesome prayer by the Psalmist who knew His God and was very aware of his need of cleansing. He is filled with a sense of awe as he reflects on a God who knows him completely. Inside and out, upside and down, standing or sitting, near or far, in travel or at rest, he knew that he knew, that God knew Him and knew his thoughts. Nothing could hide him from the eyes of His Creator and all knowing God. His reflection leads him to consider the wicked and then to consider himself before the one, righteous Judge and examiner of all people. Is your conscience speaking? Is it time for an evaluation of the heart? Let’s thank God for the conscience that alerts us to our need for His probe deep within our heart and soul. That deep heart and soul searching accomplished by our creator pulls out the unlovely and impure that lurks within. His mercy search brings sin to the surface, so that we can deal with it, ask forgiveness and renew our minds in Christ. O Happy day, O Happy Day, when Jesus washed my sins away!
What a marvellous makeover! An awesome transformation and rejuvenation! What a miraculous beauty treatment when we allow Him to free us of your strongholds, release us from our chains of oppression and set us free from the wages of sin and all the bondage, misery and despair that it brings! God’s transforming power leads us into a new life with an extreme makeover, and the promise of abundant life here and now with sweet, life everlasting.
