The Doorpost: We need to be truly seeking God
Mike Miller · Jan 01, 2017
Who can discern his errors?
Declare me innocent of hidden faults. Keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.
We can be in the wrong without realizing it. At the very time we are the most confident, we may be in the greatest danger. What can we do?
Earlier in Psalm 19 we are reminded that God speaks to all people through His creation. But He didn’t stop there. He has given us His Word. God’s law is perfect, His testimony is sure, His precepts are right, His commandment is pure, and His rules are true. The fear of the Lord is clean and endures forever.
God has provided everything needed for us to know Him and be cleansed, even of our hidden faults and presumptuous sins, when we seek Him. We need to be truly seeking God, with our hearts crying out to Him.
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”
For the Kingdom,
