I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate."
Romans 7:15 (NLT)
O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD.
Psalm 139:1-4 (NLT)
You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!
Psalm 139:5-6 (NLT)
I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence!
If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there.
If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.
I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night —
but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
Psalm 139:7-12 (NLT)
"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life."
Psalm 139:23-24 (NLT)
“There is no deep knowing of God without a deep knowing of self and no deep knowing of self without a deep knowing of God.”
John Calvin – Institutes of the Christian Religion
“Grant, O LORD, that I may know myself that I may know Thee.”
