Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiworks.
:2 Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge.
:3 There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.
:4 Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world! In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
:5 which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
:6 Its rising is from one end of heaven, and its circuit to the other end; and there is nothing hidden from its heart.
:7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure making wise the simple;
:8 the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pur, enlightening the eyes;
:9 the fear of the Lord is clear, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
:11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned, and in keeping them there is great reward.
:12 Who  can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults.
:13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.

Presumptuous means arrogant; insolent; as in pride, willful; rash confidence or in violation of known duty;

Verse 14 : words of my mouth - what I say
meditation of my heart - what I think - these two reveal who I am inside and out.

Mt 5:26 Assuredly, I say to you, you, will by no means get out of here till you have paid the last penny.

There is no heaven with a little corner of hell in it. God wants to make you pure, holy and right. He will not allow you for one moment to escape the scrutiny of the Holy Spirit. Is this a God of mercy and of love? Seen from God's perspective, it is a glorious ministry of love.

God is going to bring you out pure and spotless, undefiled. But He wants you to first recognize the disposition you have, the right to yourself. The moment you are willing to give that right to God, He will begin to change you.

If you wonder why you don't move forward with God, are you paying your debts from God's standpoint?
Or from yours?
