The LORD knows people's thoughts; he knows they are worthless! Joyful are those you discipline, LORD, those you teach with your instructions. Psalm 94:11-12

It's rare that you pray for discipline and correction, but living by faith in an all-knowing God means learning to trust and to even take joy in God's discipline. The last thing you want is to go off course, making destructive choices that hurt you and those you love. And so the best hope for you is to humbly know your place and to take stock of your thoughts. Compared to God's knowledge and wisdom, your own thoughts indeed are worthless.

Perhaps you can take comfort in knowing that despite being aware of the best and the worst of your thoughts, God loves you enough to seek you out for discipline. He has trusted you with the scriptures to instruct and guide you. You have His Spirit dwelling within you, assuring you that in spite of your "worthless" thoughts, you're worthwhile. You are God's beloved child whom He could never deny or abandon.

You can ask with confidence for His wisdom and instruction. He delights in directing you toward freedom and life. The only thing holding you back is your tendency to hold on to your flawed thoughts.
