Don’t Be Complacent

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! 24 And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! ~ Psalms 139:23-24

Sometimes it’s easy to feel like we’ve done everything and there’s nothing more for us to do as Christians. Almost as if we’ve grown and learned all we need to, so we stop searching for flaws in our lives. But King David, a man after God’s own heart (according to God Himself), never did. He prayed that the LORD would search him. He prayed that the LORD would search his heart and his thoughts so that the LORD could reveal anything in him that wasn’t of God. This is what we need to do.

Even though we’ve been saved, redeemed, and freed from sin, we still sin. We still have things in our lives that we need to fix. We’ll never be perfect in this life, but that doesn’t mean we aim for anything less than perfection. Because if we aim for perfection and miss, we’ll still land amongst the exceptional and great. So, keep searching yourself. Keep growing. Keep praying and seeking God. Just never stay at a standstill because being complacent with who you are will only make you regress. And regression leads to spiritual death.

LORD God, please search me daily that I might continuously grow in You. That I might be a mini Christ on earth to the world. That I might be a light in the darkness around me. Teach me to love You with everything in me. Help me to see the sins that I may not even know I commit. Guide me through this race You have set before me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
