Is Your Heart Pure, Powerful
Having a Pure
Psalms 51:6 , God seeks people who are pure in heart, a person
who has a pure heart, who is wholeheartedly serving God, is truly powerful.
David, tells us that having a pure heart means having truth in our
"inner being" . Which is who we really are deep down in our hearts. Having a
pure heart starts with paying attention to our thoughts, because our thoughts come
our words, our emotions, our attitudes and our motives.
Even, when we know someone wants or needs us to do something, and we
get these thoughts in our minds of all kinds of excuses and reasons why we cannot do
something, why you don't or don't want to or can't or even the I won't, and that goes
from our words, then the attitude, then the wrongful motives that is not a pure
Many people today and I have experienced
this with so many people, someone wants them to do something for them, or someone
asks them to do something they immediately start letting their minds and thoughts
control the circumstances and then they start coming up with every excuse they
possibly can not to do something for someone.
Our mind can and will play tricks on us, our
emotions, and some will say, “God told me not to, or God told me this”, when
in actuality your mind was fooling you, because not all the time God works in our
minds, He works in Our hearts, and if we have a pure heart we wouldn’t mind doing
anything for anyone, so there you go, your heart is something which God gave you and
He wants us to use it the way He meant for it to be used, not full of hate ,and
selfishness, not to use it for vile reasons, and just think of ourselves and our
The untruthfulness comes out, and that makes
our hearts “Un-PURE” this makes the heart filled with envy, hate, malice,
selfishness, lying, you name it, it has become something in which God despises. That
is NOT a Pure Heart!
Un-Pure Heart, becomes like a thorn in
Jesus’ side, your thoughts, your emotions, your attitudes, your words and the
wrongful motives, all have something to do with having a Pure Heart!
Purity of the heart is not natural, we have to work at it. 1
Thessalonians 4:3, says, to desire and work toward purity of the heart because
it's God's will. It's a challenge for all believers, that they be excites about
accepting, but we never have to face it alone.
(REVAMP ABOVE: Purity of the Heart is not a
natural thing in most people, it has to be worked on. In 1 Thess. 4:3 tells us, to
desire and work towards purity of the heart because it’s God’s will, not our will,
but there are times when the heart isn’t where and like it should be it controls who
we are or whom we become, and that is a heartless person. )
God created us to be dependant on Him, to bring Him our troubles and
He will help us with them. He's the only one who knows us inside and out, He knows
whether we are sincere or not, there is a price to pay for a pure heart, but there is
always a reward !
So, in order to do God’s will we ALL need a
Pure Heart which can become very powerful. God never said the challenges we have in
our lives will always be easy ones, but He knows and relies on “OUR TRUE
Dependencies on Him”.
We Need to be excited about accepting what
God has for us, and there are times the challenges we have in our lives, we feel like
we just cannot do it, but with God by our side and in OUR HEARTS, we can all we have
to do is call His Name and there He will be.
We never have to face them alone. God
created us to be dependent on Him, to bring Him all of our troubles our hurts, no
matter what it is, He wants us to bring them to Him. He’s the only one who knows us
inside and out, He knows whether we are a sincere being or not.
There is a price to pay for having a Pure
Heart, but there is always a REWARD waiting for us, we never have to be afraid of
having a Pure Heart, because Our Pure Hearts can be a Powerful thing in our
Never be afraid of making a commitment to
having a Pure Heart, Jesus did, and many other’s had a Pure Heart, allow God to do a
deep cleansing of your heart, let Him work in your heart, let Him purify your
We may not always feel good about what He is
doing, but He knows us better than we know ourselves and He knows what is best for
us, better than we do, but if we do our part facing it, accepting it, and allowing
God to change us and work in us, He will make sure we are blessed in all areas of our
We never have to be afraid to make a commitment to allow God
to do a deep cleaning and purifying work in us. We may not always like it, or feel
good about it, but if we do our part- facing it, accepting it, and allowing the
changes in us, He WILL make sure we are Blessed!
