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!
By David Wilkerson
King David said, “Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order” (Psalm 40:5).
“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!” (Psalm 139:17).
God thought of you before you were born! He thought of you when your life was breathed into a cell — when you were still in the womb. It is hard to comprehend that our Father would think of us so highly. He thinks of us when we lie down in bed and when we rise. He thinks of us with every step we take. He also knows and understands every thought we think: “Jesus perceived their thoughts” (Luke 5:22).
Heaven is populated with highly intelligent beings — angels, seraphim, cherubim — who are witnesses to the faithfulness of our God. They know of all the promises he has made to us concerning his attention toward every minute detail of our lives. If God failed in a single one of these promises, all heaven would become chaos and ruin, for the heavenly host would say, “God failed to keep his Word! He can’t be trusted.” Yet, the fact that all heaven praises God, throwing their crowns at his feet, is proof that they behold and believe in his faithfulness. God can be trusted to do all he said he would.
The world is not looking for more doctrinal proof of the reality of God. The world is looking for Christians who can stand up to every crisis, trouble and difficulty, and remain calm and at rest in the midst of it all. The world needs to see God’s children trusting wholly in their Lord.
Beloved, trust in the Lord with all your heart. Freedom from fear and worry comes when you rest confidently in the very One who created you!
