Psalm 19:12 Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults.
If left up to me, I would never see my error. I always see myself in a better light than reality proves. I give myself to much slack and over extend credit. The only way I've found to properly combat this is Gods word. His word reveals my error, my sin. His sword of the Spirit divides deep down in the heart truth from lies. It reveals my true intentions. But the glorious part has just begun. His word also leads me into repentance. To cleanse me, wash me from secret faults. Not hidden from God, but from myself or others. Thankfully, He cleanses us from the hidden faults we arnt even aware of.
