KEY VERSEPsalm 26:2 (David’s prayer)
Put me on trial, Lord, and cross-examine me. Test my motives and my heart.

I want you to have confidence in our relationship. You are not perfect—stop trying to be. My forgiveness covers your sin. Rest in my love and stop striving to get me to love you. I already do and always will. Pursue me, however. Seek me and my will. I won’t be hard to find, but I want you to hunger for me and my word. Prioritize me in your day. Make choices that are consistent with my calling on your life. Be restless when you don’t. That’s healthy.

I dwell with you in all places, but I love when you gather with the saints to worship me each week. Don’t miss this opportunity. Not only do I love your praise, but I want to give you an opportunity to serve and encourage others. Remind those who are forgetting about my love that my love is constant and my way is secure. Help them see that standing with me keeps them on level ground. I am with you. Follow me and encourage others to do so with you.

Ask God to evaluate your life. Take time and listen. Be still for two minutes. What did you hear? Continue to pause, listen, and reflect throughout the day. Journal a response or share with a friend.
