Help Me to Know Me

Ok, it’s time for a message.  Help me to know me.  Psalm 139:23-24 says “Search me O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting”.  There is a line in a worship song that I like that says “Help me to know my ways”.  There was a time where I spent far too much time trying to tell others what was wrong in their lives.  Then one day I heard myself say to me “let me help you see what is wrong with you”.  I learned that it’s hard to find the wicked mean hurtful things in our own lives until we learn to live in our own spotlight.  So I try to do that – especially in the world we have today – because the spotlights we use for others are bigger than ever.  Now, I live each day asking God to search me out; show me what He finds; root out all the evil; and then to lead me in ways that will endure.  Most of us want what is right; but sometimes because of the stuff we have in us we just don’t know what right is.  I used to be like that.  I learned from Him that it isn’t enough to want to do right; it isn’t enough to believe I do right.  What’s more important to me now is to allow Him to do to me what I wanted done to others.  God taught me this – to know that the eyes of everyone else are always on me so I learned to live as if God is always searching me out so what you find will be something useful for your life.  When you let the Lord search you out you can know He is always very near to you – that is awesome!  Live a Delivered Life.  Love you
