23 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24)
Today marks the third and final day of our group Bible study. The comments over the last two days have been extremely enlightening and a clear reflection of quality time spent with God.
We’ll close this group Bible study by focussing on the last few verses of Psalm 139 as we continue to consider the theme Our Identity.
It is quite interesting that in the passage from Psalm 139 that we read on Day 1, the Psalmist declares how much God knows him (verses 1 – 12), but now, in verse 23 he asks God to search and test him. If God knows him perfectly, why the invitation to be searched and tested?
Ask God for his guidance as you consider this passage and try to internalize what it is saying.
Something to think about:
- Why might the Psalmist’s request to be searched and tested be extremely important in understanding and developing his identity? How might this apply to you?
Please keep sharing your thoughts. They are making a big difference.
