“As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever. 1 Chronicles 28:9 NASB
Do I know God? Do I serve Him with my WHOLE heart? Do I serve Him with a WILLING mind?
God of my Father, I seek to know You and serve You with my whole heart and a willing mind. I pray that when You search my heart You will find my heart is wholly devoted to You, Lord God, and my thoughts bring glory to Your name. May I show my devotion by walking in Your statutes and keeping Your commandments. Lord, Your word promises that You are with me. I am with You, my God. Do not hide Yourself from me, Lord, I seek Your will for I know You will forsake the one who forsakes You. Examine me, O Lord, and try me; Test my mind and my heart then I shall walk in my integrity. Redeem me and be gracious to me, O Lord I pray. Amen 1 Kings 8:61/2 Chronicles 15:2/Psalm 26:2/Psalms 26:11 NASB
🌹 God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7b NASB
Building on the foundation which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11)
You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 NASB
Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually. Psalm 105:4 NASB
🌹When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I shall seek.” I sought You, Lord, and You answered me, And delivered me from all my fears. The poor man cried, and Lord, You heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. The righteous cry, and Lord, You hear and deliver them out of all their troubles. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but You, Lord, deliver them out of them all. Lord, You are the Redeemer of the souls of Your servants, and none of these who take refuge in You will be condemned. It is You who I will seek continually. In Your name, Jesus, and for Your glory, I pray, amen. Psalms 27:8/Psalms 34:4, 6, 17, 19, 22 NASB
The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the innermost parts of his being. Proverbs 20:27 NASB
Nothing is hidden from God. He knows the secrets of the heart. It is senseless to think we can hide our thoughts, our desires, our motives, our sin from our Creator. God formed our inward parts and also knows our very soul. Psalms 44:21b/Psalm 139:13a NASB
Prayer: O God, it is You who knows my folly, And my wrongs are not hidden from You. God You do not see as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but You, Lord, look at the heart. Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way. This I ask in the name of Jesus, amen. Psalms 69:5/1 Samuel 16:7b/Psalms 139:23-24 NASB
🌹Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 1 John 3:21 NASB
As I was praying this morning, this verse came to me: Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer. Psalms 19:14 NASB
My desire is to live, or at least try my best to live up to the standard of my Lord and be pleasing in His sight. Filling my heart with the word of God daily so I can meditate on it all day. The word that will control my thoughts and the words of my mouth all to the glory of God!
Other verses I referenced:
Let my meditation be pleasing to Him; As for me, I shall be glad in the Lord. Psalms 104:34 NASB
I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. Psalms 9:1-2 NASB
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You; And my soul, which You have redeemed. Psalms 71:23 NASB
🌹The Word can guide your disposition. It does mine.
In their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, ‘You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; You will keep on seeing, but will not perceive; For the heart of this people has become dull, With their ears they scarcely hear, And they have closed their eyes, Otherwise they would see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, And understand with their heart and return, And I would heal them.’ Matthew 13:14-15 NASB
🌹But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. Matthew 13:16 NASB
Like apples of gold in settings of silver Is a word spoken in right circumstances. Proverbs 25:11 NASB
The words of a whisperer are like dainty morsels, And they go down into the innermost parts of the body. Proverbs 26:22 NASB
A lying tongue hates those it crushes, And a flattering mouth works ruin. Proverbs 26:28 NASB
The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart. Luke 6:45 NASB
But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:36-37 NASB
🌹Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer. Psalms 19:14 NASB
My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken. My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. Psalms 62:1-2, 5-8 NASB
Do you know God as your rock? Your stronghold? Your hope? Your strength? Your refuge? Your trust?
Troubles? Burdens? Feel lost?
🌹Wait in silence for God only. Pour out your heart before Him; God is our refuge.
