Heart Check Exercise
Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting (Psalm 139:23-24)
Christianity in our days is becoming weak and our generation wants a mighty move of God but left out the core aspect of what a relationship between the Sovereign God and man ought to be but expecting the equation of divine relationship to be balanced. Even many young people have been deceived to believe that relationships should be in the contest of our so-called pop culture pattern of relationships that lacks commitment.
Looking into the life of David, I perceive we need to learn from his relationship with God and what makes him the apple of God’s eye. David knew what it means to walk with Sovereign God. There is a secret David understood about what makes the relationship between God and man stay in alignment and avoid staleness. He understood how God is so much interested in the inward part of the heart.
“ Behold, thou desires truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me know wisdom. (Psalm 51:6)
He knows how God is concerned about the capacity of what our heart holds per time. He also understood how God sees the future consequences of what is upon our hearts and how he can stop God from revealing various dimensions of His like He had done to the patriarch.
Looking diligently into this scripture it can be realized that David invited God to do the quality inspection of his life because he knows the author of life can only be the one that can help search the heart thoroughly because the Bible says in the book of Jeremiah 17:9-10.
,” The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings – Jeremiah 17:9-10
If we also want to have a sustained relationship with God and see God moves like in the days of old we must also come to term with God’s condition of relationship and not the pop culture concept of relationship and ask for God’s Heart check in order for us to get positioned for what is on His mind for our lives. We need to diligently welcome Him often to check our thought not only our heart and help us removes what is not in alignment with His purpose so that we can gain ascendance in our relationship with Him.
Relationships with the Immortal God can be so sweet if we do it based on His precepts. Have you ever looked diligently into your life, and given God an invitation to check the account of your life for this past month and open your heart to His honest search to check your motive?
God gives to a man that cherished heart search exercises the fear of His and guides his paths. Are you willing to walk His path, weave His power, run errands for Him, and bless your world, give Him constant invitations to check your heart and thoughts and the days of your sojourn will leave the capture that you please Him?
