When it is time for our medical check up, we want to make sure that the doctor does a thorough check up and hopefully we get given a clear bill of health. David asks the Lord to give him a spiritual check up in Psalm 26.
"Examine me, God, from head to foot, order your battery of tests.
Make sure I’m fit inside and out." - Psalm 26:2
David wants to make sure that he is fit for the work of the Lord and I admit that it is a brave prayer to pray. Would you be willing to pray that kind of prayer?
His ultimate reason for praying this prayer is because he wants to keep in step with God, all the way. David wants to keep sight of God's love and guidance.
"So I never lose sight of your love, but keep in step with you, never missing a beat." (v.3)
Are you keeping your eyes fixed on Jesus? Keep in step with Him and see how far He leads you.
May God bless you this week.
Living in Grace
