February 17- 4th Day of Lent
Search me, O 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. Psalms 139:23-24 NLT
When the surgeon came to meet me as I lay on the operating table I was calm. Though we had only spoken briefly while I had been examined in his office the week before I trusted him. How much more should we be trusting God during times of change in our lives? May this not just be a season of introspection but rather one of asking God for His inspection of our lives. When we trust God as our surgeon we yield to Him control of our life. We trust that even what we don’t yet understand will be best left in His hands.
How can we know that He has our best at heart? We can be confident because we see that His own journey towards Easter morning was marked by a trust that was determined to stay the course, no matter the cost. We can choose again by faith to set out on whatever new path He chooses because His promise is that it leads to everlasting life!
