“Self-awareness” (also known as self-knowledge) is the capacity to understand our personal desires, feelings, motivations, thought patterns, and tendencies. Being self-aware (i.e., knowing yourself) is critical for effective growth in life.
We will struggle to grow in areas of our lives when we fail to understand what is happening inside us and how we choose to act or behave in response to our thoughts and experiences.
Knowing yourself is about knowing your heart.
Jeremiah 17:9; Proverbs 4:23; Psalm 26:2
God knows us more intimately than we even know ourselves. He searches our hearts and can help us understand them. And if we think we understand it, He can reveal new insights about ourselves and what is stirring
Psalm 139:1-4, 23-24
Ask God to reveal to you aspects of who you are that you may not fully understand regarding the inner working of your heart, so that you can better know yourself and therefore realize the ways you need to change. Then, you can also grow in honoring and glorifying Yahweh and the Lord Jesus in your life.
