A pure heart

12572_Matters_of_the_HeartWhat is so important about having a pure heart?

Well the bible says” Blessed are those who are pure in heart for they will see God”.

We often sing Open the eyes of my heart Lord I want to see you, …when we see you when find strength to face the day. Let us not be fooled. These songs are not talking about seeing God in the natural. But rather seeing God at work in the spirit, through his spirit. The doubtfulness of man requires us to see to believe and if we can’t see things moving and changing, our faith can die down and we can lose hope. That’s why a pure heart is key to see God’s hand at work in our lives through the good times and the bad times through our ups and downs our mountains and valleys. An impure heart will blame others or even the Lord.

Without a pure heart we fail to see the goodness of God, for we are blind to his ways and numb to the voice of his spirit. Let each and everyone of us fight to keep a pure heart that we would see his hand at work in our everyday lives.

Life is too short to miss out on the opportunity to see and understand in the Spirit what the Lord is doing in and through our lives. Let’s not be apathetic but seek to maintain a pure heart.
