The Ultimate Search!
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts.” Psalms 139:23
There is a famous game known as ‘ultimate search,’ where you can test how fast you can find all the hidden words within the challenge puzzles. Similarly, the heart of a human is filled with a lot of hidden thoughts. The heart is the center of actions; the bible said, “for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he” and “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” It is therefore evident that the heart writes the script of your action.
David was described as a man after God’s own heart, definitely because his heart was continually given to the ultimate search of God. The rejection of David’s brother and the appointment of David as the King of Israel was a matter of the heart. God’s dealing with a human has to do with their heart. He looks at the heart and not countenance.
The heart houses our intentions and motives, and that is what God considers before He uses, blesses, elevates, or promotes. He looks inwardly into the heart and conducts an ultimate search whether such heart is not selfish, self-centered, or self-seeking. You cannot receive from God beyond what your heart qualifies you for.
Why don’t you cry to God as David did? He may conduct that ultimate search on you and remove the inconspicuous and hidden faults and limitations in your heart. Psalm 51:17 says, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart— These, O God, you will not despise.”
1. Lord Jesus, search my heart and remove everything contrary to your will in my life.
2. Weapons of confusion programmed against my heart, by the Blood of Jesus, perish now.
