Your personal relationship with Jesus: Ask Him to search your heart Psalm 139

Divine Note #4 – Jan. 25, 2009

In the Psalm, David tells the Lord: Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts, v23. David is basking in the Lord’s love and he wants more and more! When you have a deep, abiding relationship with God, you want him to be a part of your entire life! I promise you that there is nothing that compares to having a close spiritual connection to our great God!

If you prayed the prayer of salvation and asked Jesus into your life, what’s next? Whether you accepted Jesus for the first time or if you are a long-time Christian, you have some choices to make. When you ask the Holy Spirit to transform your life, it’s just the beginning of your journey to spiritual maturity and a closeness to God that many Christians miss. Sadly, some believers never grow because they see Salvation as only a ticket to heaven. Others feel that attending church is all they need to do and that’s good. But a third group of believers gets it! They want to develop a deeper spiritual relationship with our Lord and they want to serve Him!

Become part of the group of believers who are on fire to know and love God just like King David! Ask God to search you and know your heart. Ask Him to help you overcome sin and guide you on the road to eternal life, v. 24. He will show you the truth about yourself and help you make changes. I’m on that road and it’s not easy, but I want to be a woman after God’s own heart! I want all of you to feel the same way! The people around us need strong, righteous women!

Please come at 9:30 a.m. next Sunday, same WOW classroom 234, before our Sunday school class. I’m going to go over the prayer of Salvation step by step, so that you understand its Biblical significance. We want to equip you to share the prayer with anyone who doesn’t know Christ. We will practice praying for each other, so we can share the gift with a hurting world!

We are your Christian community! Call, text or send an e-mail to me or Roxanne when you need extra encouragement. We will pray with you and for you. That’s part of the work that God has asked us to do. Just remember how precious His thoughts are toward you, v. 17. He loves you!

Have a week full of big God Hugs!
