Laid Bare Before Thee

All of my thoughts, deeds, and desires are laid bare before you, Oh God. You know the way that I take, You know the way You desire Me to take. May My feet tread only on your path for Your ways are higher than mine. Penetrate my heart of flesh with Your light so that I am honest before you and in me you will be well pleased. You leave nothing hidden, for you desire purity in the inward parts. How much more we gain in losing ourselves in You and taking on your desires and purposes for our lives rather than clinging to our own. You surround me with songs of deliverance and your face is ever before me. How wonderful the knowledge of Christ is, for in You are all the mysteries of the universe and all our hearts’ desires. I surrender My own understanding to the whys in My life and choose to believe that You will work a greater good than I can see now. I choose to proclaim that You are Lord now. I choose to follow where You lead though I do not see the details of the path of the end of the way. How much more You can accomplish with one heart committed to you than all the efforts of man to combined.

    I Am well pleased with one who would follow Me. Cast all your care upon Me for I will not disappoint. So much I desire to share with My beloveds, but so few are willing vessels that let Me have My way and bring forth from their lives what only I can accomplish through them.

     Fling your all upon Me and I will bring out of you more than you thought was there. I multiply what is given to Me freely. How abundant your life lived on earth will be as you look back from eternity with Me. How glad your heart will be in seeing all I brought forth from you – through your open heart of willingness.

Hebrews 4:12-13

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”
