VerseD: Psalm 139:23-24

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!
Psalm 139:23‭-‬24, ESV

On our own, we are woefully inadequate to accomplish true good, let alone alone save ourselves from our sin.
Our true peace is found in letting God show us our need for Him and His cleansing, saving work.

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:9

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:9, ESV

If we “look deep within” ourselves to find happiness, we will only be disappointed. Maybe this life will turn out better from “following our hearts,” but ultimately it usually leads us away from Christ and eternal life.
We should expect those outside of Christ to act unwisely and foolishly, but we should be sober-minded and seek His wisdom.

VerseD: Proverbs 4:23

For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

VerseD: Deuteronomy 6:6

God’s Word should be our primary source of knowledge that all other knowledge filters through. This is one way we love God, and by extension others.

VerseD: Ezekiel 36:26

And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

Apart from God, we hate Him and are selfish.
The Holy Spirit regenerates our hearts to love in Christ’s name, to seek Him and share His love with others.

VerseD: Deuteronomy 6:5

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!

An honest person knows they are a sinner in need of grace. God knows this better than we do.
If we merely ask in faith, He will guide us in all righteousness through Jesus Christ.
