Job 29-31 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Loved the insight section today! Scripture does tell us to examine ourselves, and also encourages us to ask God to examine us, which is even better (although perhaps a little scary).

Psalm 26:2 “Prove me, O LORD, and try me; test my heart and my mind.” (in context this is very much a Job prayer)

Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!”

Lamentations 3:40 “Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the LORD!”

1 Corinthians 11:28 “Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.” (regarding the Lord’s Supper)

2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!”

Galatians 6:3-4 “For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor.”

1 John 1:8-9 “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

1 John 3:20-21 “By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God.”
