Proverbs 20:27

"The spirit of man is the lamp of the LORD, searching all the innermost parts of his being." (NASB)


"The spirit (neshamah: breath) of man is the lamp (niyr/nir: candle, light; meaning to glisten) of the LORD, searching (chaphas: test, be exposed, to be searched for, sought out) all the innermost parts (cheder: chambers, inward parts) of his being (beten: belly, womb, body, seat of mental faculties)."


The spirit of man is the light and lamp of the Lord, exposing the innermost chambers of what makes him who he is.


In Psalms David said “Lord, You have searched me and you know me.” God knows your innermost thoughts on all matters. He knows where your motivations and intentions lie. Today, with the help of the Holy Spirit, search your innermost places and lay yourself bare before the Lord. Willingly submit the inner chambers of your life to Him. What is growing in your "spiritual womb" today?
