“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Psalm 139:23-24

I am grateful every time God gives me insight into ways that my ego tries to control my life. Each one brings me closer to my purpose of getting to know Him more intimately.

The warning signs that point out these hindrances to fellowship with Him are getting more and more subtle. However, once He points them out to me and I surrender myself to Him in the area of my life that had previously been in darkness, it becomes obvious how it has had such a negative effect on me.

One thing is certain. The depth of my ego’s dominance in my life and its incessant obsession to distract me from my relationship with the Lord is never-ending.

I pray that He will shine increasingly brighter light on its deceptive influence over me and draw me closer to Him.
