Two things should be the focus of our seeking the Lord: to know the heart of God in Christ and then know my own heart in the light of Christ. Why? Because the heart of man is desperately wicked.
Only in knowing God’s heart at all times can I incline/discipline/align my heart to what He wants.
Psalms 26:2; Psalms 27:8; Psalms 40:8,10; Psalms 66:18 and Psalms 86:11 reveal the possibilities for every heart.
What will you be seeking?
Examine me, O Lord , and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
Psalms 26:2 KJV
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord , will I seek.
Psalms 27:8 KJV
I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
Psalms 40:8, 10 KJV
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
Psalms 66:18 KJV
Teach me thy way, O Lord ; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
Psalms 86:11 KJV
