Look at me, God!

Imagine living a life so in sync with God that you actually ask Him to test you to see the motives of your heart.

“Yeah right!” you probably think.

Many of us live in such a way we don’t want God snooping around in our lives for fear of what He would really find.

But King David welcomed God’s scrutiny of his life. In fact, he invited it.

“Declare me innocent, O Lord, for I have acted with integrity; I have trusted in the Lord without wavering. Put me on trial, Lord, and cross-examine me. Test my motives and my heart,” Psalm 26:1-2.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life,” Psalm 139:23-24.

If God were to test you, to search your heart and motives, what would He find? What would it take for you to start living the kind of life where you would welcome God’s examination?
