Reading: Psalms 139:1-12; 23-24

Some years ago I was a guest at a large orphanage near the city of Philadelphia, PA. The children sang for me. I have never forgotten it, “You Cannot Hide from God.” And no one can! Dark places are made light under his searching eye. God sees and knows the thoughts and the intents of the heart. The spirit is quick and powerful to discern in detail our motives. God sees our innermost being. That is where he inspects our motives, our inner secret desires, our meditations, our affections. Like Elisha’s fountain at Jericho, if the source is bitter the stream will be bitter. To cure the river you must heal the spring. Christ on Calvary purified the fountain of life and causes it to bring forth sweet water.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole. Break down every idol, cast out every foe, now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. Amen.
