Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me.
- Psalm 139:23-24, NKJV
Have you erected a shield around your heart? A shield . . . of pride or doubt
Did you think that if you opened your heart and let God see inside, that He would blame you for what you have or haven’t done? Or rebuke you for your lack of faith?
You and I can be so foolish! Why do we think we can hide our feelings from God? Why would we want to hide our feelings from God? Would you open up your heart and show it to Him? Let Him see exactly how you feel and what you think. Don’t hide it or repress it or cover it up or pretend it’s not there. Just pour it all out to Him, and then wait expectantly for His response.
