Search me, O God, and know my heart David is no accomplice with traitors – Psalm 139: 23 ” Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts. ” Therefore, He has disowned them in set form, and now he appeals to God that he does not harbor a trace of fellowship with them. He will have God himself search him, and search him. Thoroughly, till every point of his being is known, and read, and understood; for he is sure that even by such an investigation there will be found in him no complicity wicked men ( one of the true resolution of 2018 ).
Try me, and know my thoughts. Exercise any and every test upon me. By fire and by water let me be examined. Read not alone the desires of my heart, but the fugitive thoughts of my head. Know with all-penetrating knowledge all that is or has been in the chambers of my mind. What a mercy that there is one being who can know us to perfection – Jesus Christ – He is intimately at home with us. He is graciously inclined towards us, and is willing to bend His omniscience to serve the end of our sanctification.
Let us pray as David did, and let us be as honest as He. We cannot hide our sin: Salvation lies the other way, in a plain discovery of evil, and an effectual severance from it: The real opportunity was given to us at Christmas!
For the past few days we have been trying to renew our mind at the ” light ” of the Spirit of Christmas, in order for our Glorious and Gracious Father to enable us to forged ahead and enjoy our free gift of Salvation at Christmas. Let us confess as revealed in Zechariah 4: 6 ” Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit; says the Lord Almighty. “
