All good begins in the heart of the redeemed. Each decision creates a platform for the next. The source of righteousness is first the repentant heart. In the knowing of the sin, decisions not of My will, My children hear My voice calling them to repentance. You too are called to the place of sorrow for sin, that you would begin again in the forgiveness afforded by My blood for you. With repentance comes great change – from a far away place, to a son, a daughter, pulled close in love. Begin again in the decisions of your everyday, turn back to the will of the Father; you know it already by My Spirit. Turn to the right, that even the smallest decisions are gentle and fragrant aroma to Me. Blessed are the righteous, by My blood, and My Spirit guiding every decision of My people who call on My Name. Be faithful in the small things, and the detail of My reflection with be upon you.
Psalm 139:23-24 (ESV) – Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
Bottom Line: David wanted God to search his heart. He wanted so badly to repent of anything that was not pleasing to God. This pleased God greatly. In our occupations, in our dealing with the everyday decisions of the workplace, we have the opportunity to do small things that would not be pleasing to our holy and forgiving God. Let’s search our heart, that our repentant response would be a pleasing aroma to our Savior. From there, His Word, can work mightily through you.
