Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
God knows everything that is in our hearts. Isn’t that amazing? He’s not a mind reader, a psychic or a magician. He knows because His Spirit dwells in our hearts.
And because He knows, I can’t fool Him. He knows all my motives, my longings, my anxieties, and my dreams.
On top of this, God never makes fun of me or my dreams when they glorify Him. He doesn’t say “oh, here we go again, Becky” when I have some crazy idea to change the world. Because, after all, His Spirit who indwells within me is the One who also gives me ideas that will glorify God.
And when I’m sad, scared, or worried and can’t express it: God knows. He sees my emotions without me uttering a single word. And His Spirit comforts me beyond my understanding.
Best of all, perhaps, is that God will point out to me my thoughts that are not in line with His will. He wants me to walk fully in His Spirit, to follow Jesus, to live with joy.
