Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, O God, and Know My Heart!”

Psalm 139:23-24 –American Revised Edition

“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!”

Reflection:

God knows us in every way– inwardly, outwardly, and spiritually.  He knows what is in our hearts and knows our thoughts, feelings, and emotions as well as our intentions. He knows if our hearts are true and pure and sincere and honest.  Take heart in this and be assured that if our thoughts and feelings and intentions are for the love and well-being of our loved ones whether they be gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender or asexual, God will understand our hearts and know our good intentions and be merciful.

You have to let God in though.  Let God and his son, Jesus Christ into your heart and let them know you and take the step to know them as well. Do not be afraid. Jesus Christ is all-loving and all-forgiving and most merciful.  In God, all things are possible.  God is all-loving, and most merciful.  It may not seem like this is so, but by our faith in God and our faith in Jesus, we are saved of all our sins and we can be forgiven.

When you study the works of Jesus and his miracles and you read the Gospels, you’ll begin to understand the power of forgiveness, the strength of love, and the awesomeness of God’s mercy.
