The Spirit nudges us to examine our hearts, confess our sins, and receive the forgiveness found in Jesus. Pride-based resentment and bitterness too easily worm their way into our thoughts and emotions unless we spend time with God in solitude, letting His Word and His Spirit search our hearts. There need be no fear in inviting Him to look into our lives. We can trust Him to deal with us in love. When was the last time you invited God to search your heart? Is there anything else He might want to say to you if you opened yourself to Him right now?

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. —1 John 1:9

Prayer: Lord, look into the nooks and crannies of my heart. Search out anything that interferes with my relationship with You and with those around me. Thank You in advance for the promise of Your forgiveness and cleansing. In Your name I pray, Jesus, amen.
