"Declare Me, Examine Me, Test Me"

“Declare Me, Examine Me, and Test Me”

Declare me innocent, O LORD, because I do what is right and trust you completely. Examine me and test me, LORD; judge my desires and thoughts. Your constant love is my guide; your faithfulness always leads me. Psalm 26:1-3

King David was a man after God’s own HEART. Yes, there were times when he grievously SINNED against God, but David REPENTED and was brought back into a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the Almighty God. Therefore, he could, with a CLEAR conscious, ask God, the ONE TRUE JUDGE of ALL MANKIND, to DECLARE him INNOCENT. David knew that he was striving to live a godly life, by doing what was RIGHT in the eyes of God. And he TRUSTED GOD COMPLETELY.

David was so sure of his CLEAN HEART that he asked God to EXAMINE him. In other words, he was saying to God; “Take and dissect my HEART and EXAMINE, or to look at EACH PART, CLOSELY and CAREFULLY and see that there are NO HIDDEN SINS or UNCLEANNESS, that has been tucked away in a corner. More than likely, he CONFESSED ALL of his iniquities, and was CONFIDENT that NOTHING was there, that shouldn’t have been there.

Then David asked God to TEST him, again he was CONFIDENT that whatever came his way, he COULD OVERCOME IT, because of his RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with God. And after the TESTING, God could KNOW that David’s FAITH was STEADFAST, and he was CONSISTENT in his OBEDIENCE to God.

David then sums it all up with; “judge my desires and thoughts.” I believe that David KNEW that the ALMIGHTY, OMNISCIENT, GOD already KNEW what David’s DESIRES and THOUGHTS were. But David was SO ASSURED of his RELATIONSHIP with God that he was WILLING to OPEN up his whole being, and then be JUDGED from the contents of his HEART. David KNEW of God’s CONSTANT LOVE and FAITHFULNESS towards him, and TRUSTED them to be his GUIDE. Are you, like David, SO ASSURED of your RELATIONSHIP with God that you are WILLING for Him to DECLARE you INNOCENT, and to EXAMINE your HEART, then to let Him put you to the TEST? Do you have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him? Do you have any HIDDEN or UNCONFESSED SINS in your HEART that is tainting your RELATIONSHIP with Him? If you are TRULY His Child, and this is the case, you NEED to get things RIGHT between YOU and HIM, so you too, like David, can say; “DECLARE me INNOCENT. “ However, if you have NEVER given your HEART and LIFE to God, you have NO RELATIONSHIP with Him, and after He JUDGES you, He will DECLARE you GUILTY, and sentence you to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPING. So, in order for you to ESCAPE HELL, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST CONFESS ALL your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him, and HEAR Him DECLARE you INNOCENT. Then spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
