Divine omniscience.

According to Expositor’s Bible Commentary of the Old Testament, Sheol and Abaddon represent the remote underworld. Whatever lies in the darkest depths of the universe, God knows its contents. As Creator, the Lord knows everything about everything, all the unknowns we wander about in life; God has the answers.

And if the Lord knows everything, He knows our heart’s motives. God knows the intention behind our actions, whether we do it for Him or ourselves. Sometimes, we don’t even realize our true intention, but God does.

‘Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Cor. 9:7

How you give exposes motives. God doesn’t want us to give with a resentful heart or strings attached. Mimicking Christ means giving cheerfully, without resentment, purely out of love. God knows our hearts better than we do. You can’t full the Creator.

Allow God to search your heart and motives. Let Him purify your intentions.

Lord, forgive us for our wrong intentions. Thank You for purifying our hearts and helping us become more like Jesus. Reveal to us any bad intentions and give us the right motives as we pursue You.  Let us honor and serve You well today. IJNIP. Amen
