Psalm 139:23-24~Search me, Oh God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
This struck me as a vulnerable, transparency toward God. Standing before Him allowing Him in to know my deepest thoughts and feelings. Seems scary sometimes. Then to go a step further and say to “point out anything that offends you”? Wow! That is totally transparent and vulnerable! Yet…when that happens, relationship happens.
God already knows my innermost, so why not acknowledge them to Him? Have relationship with Him. If a friend/spouse knew me well and I ignored what I knew they knew about me, there would not be a deep relationship. How much more with God? How much deeper with God? He even knows all the chemical makeup of my body! His Spirit lives within me! Shouldn’t I then allow my full being to Him? He is so gracious and amazing! He knows all of this, yet gives me the choice for relationship with Him.
