“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts” (Psalm 139:23).
The value of taking control of the mind became quite clear from a young age. I’ve dealt with negative thoughts, lies, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. I believe David when he told God to search him and know his anxious thoughts.
I don’t know about you, but that scares me to death because I’ve been in desperate situations before. What I love about the Psalms is that David wasn’t afraid to be a broken record. Sometimes we encounter situations that last a while, and others are spur of the moment. The Word is a powerful tool to overcome the human complexities of the mind, will, and emotions. Ask Jesus today to search your thoughts and clear your mind.
