When Jesus saw the crowds on the Mount, he sat down and began to teach. Beatitude 6 - 'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.' [Matthew 5:8 NIV]
This is my second entry for Goldencenser Challenge in the year of our Lord 2020. I must sincerely thank brother @Maxdevalue for still keeping this fire. It is beautiful to see that this edition of Goldencenser Challenge is also rewarded on peeranha.io
Below is the inspiration I drew from Goldencenser Today being the 22nd of January, 2020.
Each time I receive this message concerning a pure heart, it always call for a solemn reflection especially when I remember the writer in Psalm 24 that the blessing of a pure heart is to see God.
Jesus in His sermon said that the pure in heart would be able to see God. Seeing God here may imply enjoying God's enduring presence.
When God is with a man then all he does prospers. I see the reason Moses emphasized that God should go with him before he appears before Pharaoh.
The heart of a man is the center of decision and where the issues of life flow from. This is the reason God instructed us to guard the heart with all diligence.
All the devil is fighting is to deposit the wrong seed in our heart that our heart may become polluted and no more a place where God would stay.
God also admonishes us to give Him our heart. When our heart is inclined to God, He will feed us with the right thing that will enhance good living.
To see God in life, all we need is a pure heart and only God can purify our hearts, if we will and surrender our hearts to Him. He is ready to take away the stony heart and give us a heart of flesh that will be responsive to Him (God).
Dear Lord, help us to keep our heart pure in your hand that we may ascend your holy hill - Amen.
A prayer for my leaders
SUPPORT MY STEEM-POWERED PROJECT - @BLESSTHEORPHAN
@BlessTheOrphan project is targeted towards children and teenagers who have lost either or both parents and are going through difficult times to survive. The affected will receive relieve materials including food, clothing and educational support from @BlessTheOrphan project in a bid to help them survive.
Moreover, the vulnerable girl-child (even with both parents) will be considered in this project. While I grew up, I had been hurt because I had no one to talk to nor be concerned with my worries. I know the pains such girls go through and @BlessTheOrphan project will be a coverage for them. In this part of the world, some girls are so neglected that some rarely have access to the basic woman’s need such as sanitary wares. #BlessTheOrphan project will be a coverage to such.
Friends, Beatitudes (HEARTs) is for all, Be a part of this Blessing...
