2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you – unless, of course, you fail the test?
There are times that we need to test our walk with the Lord. To do that it is best to be alone and quiet. In this age of cell phones, MP3, and DVD players it is hard to have any quiet time at all. I even feel that many people – without Christ – “plug in” for the purpose of not hearing their own heart.
Many people are afraid to examine their inner man. It is probably because they are afraid of what they will find. Please realize that it is a healthy thing to take a long hard look at yourself. You need to see how you measure up to Christ, His calling, how far you have come and the direction in which you are headed.
Re-evaluation is at the heart of a holy walk. It means we are willing to take the occasional course correction when God gets our attention.
Take the time needed today to get a long glimpse of what is going on in your soul. Ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom and insight. Examine your life, dreams and goals in His presence. Then purpose to make the corrections that God offers you. You will be glad that you did.
