“Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.”
Psalm 26:2 KJV
Do we really want God to examine our heart? There are times when satan puts anger, sarcasm, hatred, unforgiveness and resentment in our heart and instead of us asking God to help us and forgive us, we allow satan to put us back in bondage to him. As soon as satan attacks us, we need to ask Jesus to help us.
Years ago, I worked in nursing homes and sometimes there would be inspections. There would be a lot of confusion and rushing around to make the place look like it should look. If we will do a daily inspection of our heart and make sure our heart is in right standing with God, we won’t get in so much trouble.
How is your heart today? Would you be comfortable if God inspects your heart today or would you be embarrassed for Him to see what you have allowed to stay in your heart? O that you and I would keep our heart clean so we don’t hurt God and break His heart. We need to have a heart of love and kindness.
Heavenly Father, please take Your broom of correction and sweep the things that hurt You and bring shame to You out of our heart. Help us to realize that we can’t defeat satan in our own strength. We need Jesus to protect us from the vicious poisonous barbs of satan. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
