“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”
Matthew 5:8 KJV
“To the pure, all things are pure; but to the corrupt and unbelieving, nothing is pure; both their mind and their conscience are corrupted.”
Titus 1:15 AMP
From a medical perspective , the heart controls and pumps blood to the different organs in our bodies . The heart is one of the most important members for the general functioning of the body . From a spiritual point of view it affects our spiritual well being . Our hearts can be filled with jealousy , envy , malice , and many other forms of wickedness . When we allow these things to reside in our hearts , it affects our ability to see clearly. Imagine if you put water into a foggy container , the impurities would give a disillusioned appearance .
Inevitably , situations in life can change us and induce us to think in a certain way but we have to allow our minds to be renewed . What we think and speak is a reflection of what is in our hearts because the Bible reminds us that out of the abundance of the heart , the mouth speaks .
“You brood of vipers, how can you speak good things when you are evil? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.”
Matthew 12:34 AMP
Pray that you will be among the pure in heart . God is pure and only those who don’t have their hearts clouded with impurities will be able to see Him . Do not allow situations in life to change you and affect you so much that you are not able to see God . We have to try to remove abs rectify the issues of the heart that cloud our judgement and makes us blind to God and his manifestations . God is love , joy , peace , patience and also pure . Only the pure can see the pure .
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Philippians 4:8 KJV
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right and steadfast spirit within me.”
Psalms 51:10 AMP
