Search My Heart

Psalm 139:1–4
1 O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. 2... You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. 3... You know everything I do. 4 You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.
Luke 6:45
45 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart... What you say flows from what is in your heart.
1 Timothy 1:5
5... that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.
Psalm 139:23–24
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
Psalm 51:10–12
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. 11 Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. - (All scripture NLT)

O Lord, you know everything about me. You know my heart. You truly know it Lord. I can so easily deceive myself, I so easily think I’m right when my heart is wrong. But you know me all together Lord. You know my thoughts and my heart, fully and completely. You know what I’m going to do and what I’m going to say, before I do or say it. And Lord, I know my actions and my words come from the true condition of my heart. Help me to see that I don’t have to first think about what I’m going to do or say, I have to first make my heart right before you, because what I’m going to do or say is going to come from the condition of my heart, whether good or evil.

You have called us to be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. That’s my desire Lord, please bring that to pass in my life. Search me Lord, and know my heart, test me Lord, and know my thoughts. And reveal to me what is in my heart that offends you. Put my heart to the test Lord and show me where my heart is against you. Turn me away from my own path and keep me on your path of everlasting life.

Transform me Lord, create in me a clean heart. Renew a right spirit in me. Don’t allow the condition of my heart to separate me from you, don’t allow me to grieve your Holy Spirit. Please keep me close to you Lord. Immerse me in the joy of your salvation. Cleanse my heart Lord, and make me willing to obey you in all that I do and say. Thank you for radically saving me and transforming me. In your name and for your sake, amen.
