My Lord Keeps A Record - Part 2

Oh, Lord, thou have searched me, and know me....

The purpose of this article My Lord Keeps A Record - Part 1 & 2, is to help me and other, if applicable to examine ourselves and see if there be any wicked way in me (us).
I have lived my whole life believing and knowing that God is real, that his love is real and that he is the author of all good things in life. Yet, I myself have had times in which I was lacking the right frame of mind, the right solutions, and the right answers.
I often took the low road instead of the high road, yes, I am saying that I failed God. It is easy to let ourselves become deceived, not so much in what we are doing, but often in what we are NOT doing.
I am very thankful that God in his mercy gave me enough of life to make the wrongs right, seek his precious will and to turn again unto the him. No, I have never denied the Lord, I never became unfearful or doubted that he was real, but I walked afar off.
I am thankful that I kept reading the Word of God, and finally returned to the table of plenty.

“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Knew ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” 2 Corinthians 13:5

“Examine me, O Lord, and prove me: try my reins and my heart.” Psalms 26:2

I must add this entire chapter in Psalms….this is my prayer because I know that the Lord keeps a record of my goings and comings.

O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.

Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

If I say, surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
