Searching Deeper

“For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined.” Psalm 66:10 (NKJV)

EXAMS! The very word manages to strike some fear into almost every student. Even as women, the annual medical “exams” we endure are usually something we dread!  But God’s Word tells us how important it is that we ourselves take responsibility regularly examining our spiritual life.  By doing so we will see if we are further on the road of maturity than we were the last time we checked.  Paul tells us in I Corinthians “For if we would judge ourselves, we would be not judged.”  How do we go about this “judging” of ourselves–this “exam” of our spiritual growth?  There are many passages that give us examples: In Psalms, David gives us guidelines in both Psalms 15 and 24 when he says, “Lord, who may dwell in your holy tabernacle?”  Again, Ezekiel 18:5-9, I Timothy 5, and II Peter 1:5-9 are some other passages that help us examine our lives.  There are many places in scripture that provide tests for us. The important thing is that we keep constant watch over our souls so that we may live pleasing to Him who is our strength!

“God our Father, please help us as we look into our lives for any sin that would be lingering there.  Help us to see ourselves as You see us, and live to bring glory to You.”

For His Glory
