“O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.”
Do you realize how much God KNOWS you. He knows your heart. You do not have to be afraid of that knowledge.
If you are a child of God. God no longer sees a heart that is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things. Why would he? That was the old you. That was B.C.
He loved you as a sinner. Christ died for you as a sinner. He took your sins to the cross and forgave you, forever. This power of the gospel cannot be underestimated.
God has given you a new heart! He has put a new spirit in you! You no longer have a heart of stone-he removed it. Now you have a soft heart and God’s Spirit dwells in you. His decrees and laws are written on the very fiber of your being.
This is all his work and it is marvelous in our eyes and he delights in you.
