An independent audit
"Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts…” - PSALM 139:23
Corporations have long recognized the value of an independent audit to uncover any financial wrong-doing and identify assets and liabilities. This kind of honest, intentional assessment makes positive change possible. In the same way, through the process of confession, we are “independently audited” by God Himself. When our wrong-doing is revealed, we become aware of our need for forgiveness in specific areas.
Then, through confession and turning away from the sins God reveals to us, we take steps to prevent them from happening again. So why not take some time alone today and ask God to audit your life and show you the results. He wants to help you make positive changes that will strengthen you as an asset to the Kingdom and keep you close to Him.
