“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24

“Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my mind and my heart.” Psalm 26:2

Would David, the man after God’s own heart, not trust himself, but present his heart to the Lord to be tried? Much less can or ought we to trust our hearts. “He who trusts in his own heart,” says the wise man, “is a fool” (Proverbs 23:26).

We have more reason to be afraid of our own hearts than of all other enemies. It is not necessary for us to know when or by what means the Lord searches our heart. But everyone that is really in a state of grace and walking in the fear of the Lord will pray to Him to search the heart and to deliver him from every wicked way.

The Holy Spirit has various ways of searching the hearts of His people and He makes use of different means with the same person. We are not to limit the mode nor the extent of His operations. But it is our duty to pray that He will, in everything, guide us in the path that leads to everlasting life. Some may be wrought upon very differently from others, but the whole administration of these things is under the direction of infinite Wisdom and will manifest the glory of Divine grace in our salvation.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
