Day 1: Inner Searching

main image

Psalm 139:23, 24 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!”

Read the verse above as if you are speaking this to the Lord. Offer up your heart, thoughts, and actions to God, willing to express an answer to any question God may have for us. Each day, ask the Lord these questions and listen for Him:

  1. Lord, what am I missing? Is there anything in my heart and mind that I need to surrender to you this morning?
  2. Show me the things that I have in my heart that distract me from you.
  3. Help me to turn away from anything that keeps me from living in your fullness

Repent for what we have allowed ourselves to become. In light of God’s grace, kindness, favor, and love as well as His mighty power through us and His Holy Spirit in us, we should be freer from sin than we are.
