Begin study:


The Bible speaks often about the inner parts of the human body, such as the heart and reins. The reins is a reference to the kidneys and is usually connected with the emotional aspects or motivations or intents of the person.

From the previous verse, the Lord tests the heart and reins.

The heart is the physical pump which circulates the blood throughout the body, and in the sense of the soul, this is a reference to the circulation of thoughts throughout ones soul. Combined together this is a reference to the thoughts and intents of the soul.

Using the inner parts of the human body to symbolize ones thoughts and feelings, is also a mechanism to demonstrate that God can see into places that no person can see. That is, into the soul.

Remember that the soul is the unseen and undetectable part of your life, which is the real you. The brain is the biological part of you, that links the soul to the biological you and thus to the world.

The idea here is that God can see into places within the human soul, that no one else can see. Even the individual cannot see in to his own subconscious, but God can see deep into even the hidden parts of the soul.

What you think is what you are, and God, knowing what you think, knows exactly what you are – righteous or evil.

And the righteous, is one who strives good and pursues truth as prescribed by God, not as defined arbitrarily by man.

The person whose thoughts are of truth, is one who has learned Bible doctrine and the principles contained therein.

For that person, God is a defense, a shield, a protector, a fortress. This word describes the scaly hide of a crocodile, and comes to mean the total covering within an impregnable defense. The world is an unprotected enemy and to a crocodile, the enemy is the defenseless attacker incapable of dealing with Gods fortress arsenal.

There is no greater force or power, than God.

Living inside His fortress, due to being right in thoughts and intents, means total and complete and permanent security.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
