"Search Me, O God..."

Psa. 139:23-24

  1. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
  2. And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.


With the Psalmist, we should cry out to God to shine his light upon our "deceitful and desperately wicked" human hearts (Jer. 17:9). Jesus is the "discerner of the thoughts and intents" of the heart; we need, for our benefit, to see what He sees, so that we might bow in agreement and be set free - his truth for our lie!
