We spent last week looking at Psalm 139, where in verses 1-18 David talked about how amazing God’s thoughts were toward him, and that God knew all his thoughts, then he went on to reveal all his corrupt thoughts about his hatred for others in verses 19-22. Quite a contrast. But we’ll love the way David closes out this Psalm:
“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. (vv. 23-24)”
With this ending we can clearly see that God was searching his heart at that time. Often God can see our hearts by how we word our prayers. What I ask for reveals the corruption or holiness of my heart. Jesus said to Blind Bartimaeus, “What do you want me to do for you?” (Luke 18:41) How he answered that question would reveal faith or need.
Reread the last two verses above and make this your prayer. And expect God to answer right away.
