Psalm 139:23-24 (The Message)
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.
The prayer for self-examination evokes a sense of dread. We are inviting God to help US know ourselves better (He already knows us best and loves us most). Only under God’s steady gaze of love are we able to find the healing and restoration we so desperately need. Trust Him with your heart.
