Test

Ps 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

 

This is a dangerous prayer.  When we pray this verse we are asking for a trial – a trial to show us where we don’t trust God.   In college I learned the hard way not to wait to study until just before a test.  It is the same with learning to trust God.  Daily praying and scripture study grow our faith muscles.  Testing of our faith and trust is for our benefit – to show us where we are in our relationship to God.  We must ask ourselves, “Are we really ready for a test?”  I encourage you to get into the Bible every day and to take time every day to pray, being sure to give God equal time to speak to you.
