Taken from Each New Day by Corrie Ten Boom
What can hinder our surrender? Sins, sorrows, possessions, family, our will, rights and duties. Sins such as doubt, fear, inferiority feelings, materialism, envy, self-centeredness and self-consciousness. All are the territory of the enemy.
Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there be any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting!
Psalms 139:23, 24 RSV
Lord Jesus, put Your searchlight on my life, and show me where I need Your cleansing blood.
