"O Lord, You know" my SINS and FOLLIES! No one else does. No one else ever will. How could I look anyone in the face, if I thought he knew what was passing in my heart, or what is transacted in the chambers of my imagination within!
The Lord alone can search the heart. He alone knows the worst of us; and He alone knows the best; for the best and the worst, are both concealed in the same heart. The eye of God sees every motive, every thought, every lust,
His eye is on that mysterious portion of our nature, called the imagination, on which such strange pictures are often painted, in which such fearful scenes are sometimes transacted.
Little does the young Christian think — what the pure and holy eye of God sees within him; and what his own eye will one day discover, filling him with alarm, if not with horror, with shame and self-loathing! Then he will enter into poor Job's confession, "Behold, I am vile!" and into Isaiah's exclamation, "Woe is me! I am undone!"
But blessed be God, the righteousness of Jesus covers all and conceals all; and the grace and Spirit of God will ultimately purge away the whole foul heap from us!
Now our iniquities are forgiven, and our sins are covered; but then our natures will be perfectly purified, and be as white as the falling snow!
2 Samuel 7:20 ... And what can David say more unto thee? for thou, Lord God, knowest thy servant.
