5/31/13 Daily Devotion

Psalm 44:20-21 If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god, [21] would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart?

Pretending is an action that we learned as a child, but found its perfection as we grew into adults. As children, we pretended to have tea parties or fly military planes. We pretended our bicycles were motorcycles as we cruised through the streets with playing cards clothes-pinned to the bicycle frames. As we continue to grow, we perfect our craft as we learn to convincingly lie to our parents and friends. We adjust our natural actions to bring about a specific impression on a person of the opposite gender. Somewhere in there, many of us have learned to pretend to be Christians. Maybe we saw this action perfected in our parents. Maybe we leaned it from a close friend. Maybe it’s something we taught ourselves. Either way, we have become highly skilled in this area. What we seem to forget is this: While we can fool the people around us some of the time in regard to our faith, we will never be able to fool God. God looks at the heart of man, not his outward actions. God knows who we really are deep within our souls, and that should be of great concern to us all. But, for some reason, it’s not. We must consider right now the contents of our hearts, or we shall have an eternity to wish we would have heeded these words.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see who I really am deep within my soul.
