Search Me, O God

Listen to your heart’s yearning for God.

Your flesh tries to rule you. Fight against it. Realize how its pleasures last only a short time.

Break the bondage by continuing to think of the eternal. Listen to God’s Spirit and submit. Give Him an opportunity to speak to you through: your prayer time, your Bible reading, your serving, and your praise. Yield control to the Spirit.

Psalm 139:23-24 is David’s honest prayer to God. He humbly says, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” The God-first leader is the one who daily prays this kind of prayer. Ask God to search your heart and motives. Ask your Heavenly Father to examine you and reveal to you the areas where you are lacking. Hear from God. Do what He says. That’s true leadership!
