The heart of mankind is a fickle thing. Jeremiah calls it deceitful and wicked. Some of the biggest lies it tells are lies about ourselves and our relationship with God.

“It’s okay. Everyone does it God will understand and forgive.”

“Will God really deliver you? Remember what happened to uncle Billy”

“You don’t really think God can use you now, do you? You’re nothing but a failure. Always have been. Always will be.”

These are just a few of the lies. Which ones do you believe?

David knew failure. I doubt David trusted himself anymore than God did later in life. “Search my heart God. I don’t trust my own view of myself. I don’t trust how I feel. I certainly don’t trust my actions.

His prayer ends with the confident realization that once the examination was done, once the pain of revelation is past, then show me the next steps. Show me the path I need to become the person you can empower me to be.

Be brave enough to open yourself to a God whose only desire is to make you better; to show you the path to everlasting life.
