“I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:10
I read this verse this morning and I thought … Well, that’s just great, isn’t it? The places we thought no one could get to, the places we try to hide our thoughts, our bitterness, our pride and selfishness. The places where our doubt, fear, jealousy resides, the places we thought no one knew of, God searches out.
I guess the point is, we can act spiritual, as if we’ve got it together, and we can fool a lot of people. But, we can never fool God. He knows our inner most thoughts, our deepest and most hidden struggles, and He deals with us according to the true person we are, not the one we pretend to be.
So, since He already knows how messed up we are, let’s be honest with Him and with ourselves. Let’s open our heart and invite Him to minister to our deepest needs.
