How often have I prayed, Search me, God and know my heart; try me and know everything I worry about. See if there are any wicked ways inside me and lead me in Your ways? (Psalm 139:23-24)
Oh, I've prayed this more times than I can count. Possibly because this is one of my highest pursuits; to be more like Christ. (my highest is to give Him all-out worship)
Anyway, as I was reading today I came across another verse a couple of chapters past the one above. Here it is...
"Let the righteous strike me; it shall be a kindness.
And let him rebuke me; it shall be as excellent oil.
Let my head not refuse it."
Ha! Don't you just love God's Word!? I have not yet heard God's tangible voice, but I have heard His voice. Sometimes it has sounded like it did today; words that bypassed the use of volume. Other times it has been through the voice of a friend, or mentor. Often it has even sounded like a child...
How well have I been listening?
If you are praying, 'search me, try me, know me, lead me' then be aware of those who God may be trying to answer you through. Be humble. Listen well. Live well.
Be humble. Listen well. Live well.
Please inquire for the word of the LORD today. 1 Kings 22:5
