Do we really want God to search us? We’ve heard the focus of how God knows us better than we know ourselves and many of us have heard the verses from Psalm 139.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.
Psalms 139:23-24 NASB
But, do we really want God to search us? Do we really desire for Him to look through every thought that we have and every way that we act? Granted, God already knows that whether we want Him to or not. The question becomes whether we are willing to open up our life to Him so that He can clean out the parts that don’t look like Him. The last part of that verse explains that it is not just about God searching us, but about Him taking what He finds and leading us.
