12/20/2010 - Psalms 139:23-24 The Cure For Auto-myopia
SCRIPTURE: Psalms 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
OBSERVATION: Strangely, the person we spend the most time with, we may not know very well at all--ourselves. How often do we have big, gapping blind spots (Auto-myopia--nearsightedness about ourselves) when in comes to our basic self-understanding. We don't even know what we don't know (that is why they are called blind spots). Here David asks God to help him with this problem. It is an example we should follow. We may not like what we see, but it is very valuable information--you can't change what you don't know to be wrong.
God can not only show us our faults but, even better, show us to path to life, a good life, an effective life. That is how much He loves us and wants the best for us.
APPLICATION: I neet to submit myself to God and let Him point where I need to change.
PRAYER: Just like David I pray that You would search my heart and show me any wicked way in me. I want to live in everlasting life, right now and for all of my life.
