“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.
