I'm thinking about my friend Kelly's thoughtful comment: as the Lord looks into the window of my heart, He urges, "window washing time-I love a little beauty".
Ah, that's good-and timely, since last week I was proof reading a lesson for our women's summer Bible study on the Omniscience and Omnipresence of God.
God says to me, "I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them" (Eze 11:5). . .to think that my secret sins are in the light of his presence (Ps 90:8). . .that no part of me can be hidden from God, all things about me are open and laid bare before Him (Heb 4:13)
He knows it all-every hint of pride, envy, self seeking. . .what then motivates me to be vigilant over my heart? Not fear of His omniscience- but amazement that He knows it all and still He loved me, still He bled and died for my eternal redemption.
Create in me a clean heart, Oh God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Ps 51)
