“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” – Matthew 5:8 (NIV)
In my own life there have been times when I cannot see God. Make no mistake – He is always there – you can see His presence in nature, in the kindness people show to one another, or in the eyes of a baby. You don’t have to look far to see God. But you DO have to LOOK.
When our hearts are full of anger, bitterness, judgment, selfishness, jealousy or even busyness, it is very hard to see God. But when our hearts are focused on Him, on His majesty, His power and His love for us, it is hard NOT to see God.
Your job is to quiet your heart, purify it, empty it of all the garbage that so easily piles up. You can quiet your heart anywhere, at anytime. Just put your focus on God, tune out as much of everything else as you can, and watch as He reveals Himself to you.
It really IS a blessing to see Him, know Him, love Him and live for Him.
