I John 3:20 ” For God is greater than our hearts, and He knows everything.”

In I Corinthians 4:5 it tells us that God will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts.  The life of our heart is a hidden life…or so we think.  But God knows all, sees all, understands all, and will forgive all if asked.  And in doing so we’ll be given a new heart…exchanging our heart of stone for a heart of flesh.

I Chronicles 29:17 ” I know, my God, that You test the heart and are pleased with integrity.”

David was known as a man after God’s own heart,  and in this prayer  we see him understanding that God examines the heart to determine the essential character of a person…especially integrity.  For David knew that the Lord took delight in those who conducted themselves in a upright, just, and fair manner towards others.
