All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the lord.
Father You know my heart and I pray that my motives are in line with Your expectations and plans for me. If they are not I pray that You swiftly and lovingly re-direct me so that I do not have to learn the painstakingly and extremely long way in which to walk. In Your name I pray. Amen.
If in your walk you have reason to question whether what you are doing is right in the eyes of the Lord ask yourself, “will I have to repent for this?” if there is doubt or you know for a fact that you would- then you are walking in darkness and your motives are not pure; don’t do it…stop right now!
But if you care not to even weigh your decisions, if you casually do and say whatever you want without consideration to whether it is of God- then God will of course weigh things for you.
