My Heart is Clean

 “Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me, you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed.” Psalm 17:3

David was assured the plans he was making were of no evil. He ran his ideas through the evil filter and came out with a clean slate.  Even his language had been cleansed. Even at night, David could be found blameless. He understood God as the examiner and yet knew Him as the One who was always with Him.


When we know God is looking on us and we are under His examination are we at peace? God visits need to be times of comfort and assurance; they need to be times of refreshing. We can walk in this same place as David when we come to realize God is always with us. His presence is what rolls into our day and makes straight the plans He has. We are kept focused on Him and whatever comes our way we can make plans with Him.


There are many temptations which come into our day making their plea for us to participate. Making plans with evil will only end up in destruction. We all have experienced the ruin which follows when we make a plan with evil. But realize we are not alone in our plan making for God is there. When our heart is allowing His plans to prosper, then we know there is no substitute.

You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! Psalm 22:23

There are many things in this world we can admire. There are many famous people we may stargaze over because of all the abilities they have been given. We may soon be finding ourselves praising them and honoring them to the place they get all of our attention. We see them behind the TV screen which grasps a lot of our daily attention. We would instead praise the celebrity or athlete behind the screen than the One who is truly worthy.

This isn’t to make us feel guilty, but it is written to change us. David called out and said for those who fear the Lord, Praise Him. If we admire God, then praise should be a daily heartfelt response. Maybe our hearts have been overtaken by false idols, and there isn’t enough room for fearing God. Could it be, we have allowed to much space to worship idols instead of the One True God?

David called out to the descendants with an an exclamation point behind his statements. He knew there would be other idols trying to compete with the fear of the Lord. We too are descendants of Jacob and like our ancestors, it’s time to honor, revere and praise His name. It could be time to get rid of what’s taking the place of our daily praise! Making praise a regular exercise will conquer the invasion of the idol.
