A Spiritual MRI

What would an X-ray—an MRI—of your soul reveal?  Regrets over teenage relationships?  Remorse over a poor choice?  You become moody, cranky.  You’re angry, irritable.  Understandable, you have shame lodged in your soul.

Interested in an extraction?  Confess.  Request a spiritual MRI.  Psalm 139: 23-24 is just that:

“Search me, O God and know my heart;
 try me, and know my anxieties;
and see if there’s any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.”

We need a prayer of grace-based confession.

God, I’ve done what you say is wrong.  
Would you wash away my guilt and make me clean again.

No chant or candle needed.  Just an honest prayer of confession.  Try it!


After a two week haitus, GRACE series returns to TBN.  Here’s Episode 8, The Grace-Shaped Life!
