With our hearts and minds being as deceitful as they are how are we able to investigate and explore them? We might start the examination in complete earnestness yet long before the exploration is over we wind up just rummaging around a patch of weeds. Then on our knees we scream out in an agonizing tone of voice: Lord I try to search out all the evilness that is within me but all the fabrications it calls truth are nothing but a big tree full of deceitfulness dropping it’s fruit of sin and lies throughout my entire life.
Lord where do I find someone who can search me out completely? I find that there is no one Lord; none but you can do what I need done for my life to be pure. Take me Lord, oh take me Lord I plead.
Oh God let not my deceptive heart rule my life and actions deceiving them to it’s content. Examine me, convict me, show me where my life needs changing, and then Lord give me the power I need and desire to live your life out within me.
This is the song of my heart that I might be pure like you oh Lord and thus in the day of Judgment I might because of thee be able to stand.
