Luke 10:21, NLT
In the later part of this verse, Jesus thanks His Father for “hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever.” This is a warning for us against pride and self-reliance. We need to be careful not to be wise in our own eyes, but to acknowledge God in everything we do (Proverbs 3:5-7). Only when we come to Him with childlike faith will He reveal His truths to us. Today, let’s pray through Psalm 139:23-24. Ask God to search your heart and to remove anything He finds offensive, and then pray that He will grant us a childlike faith that will be pleasing to Him.
Ps. 139:23-24 – “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting (NLT).”
