Investigate My Life

Investigate my life, O God,
    find out everything about me;
Cross-examine and test me,
    get a clear picture of what I’m about;
See for yourself whether I’ve done anything wrong—
    then guide me on the road to eternal life.

Psalm 139:23-24 The Message

 

The scrutiny of the Divine Being is asked for. This is a bold request…

  • Investigate my life, or search me, means to dig deep. God is asked to lay bare his inmost nature, layer after layer, going ever deeper.
  • Bring the deepest parts to light and know my heart, the center of my inmost self.
  • Search me. I know you will find evil, but investigate anyway.
  • Lead me in the ways of Godliness. The way which is right and good and leads to everlasting life.
