Blessed Are the Pure In Heart

To be blessed means to receive God’s favour upon any situations in your life. When we walk in harmony with what God wants for us, that is, according to His will, we shall see Him at work for us in the many different aspects of our lives. Matthew 5:8 NKJV “Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.”

We must begin by purifying ourselves and our hearts of anything unclean, including and especially in our thoughts; as our thoughts tend to dictate what comes out of our mouths. Matthew 15:18 NKJV “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.”

It is written in Proverbs 14:14 NKJV “The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, But a good man will be satisfied from above.” From our hearts also come our intentions and motives and if we continue to operate from a perspective of anything unclean or impure, then God cannot and will not bless our actions. Psalm 19:14 NKJV “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.”

If you wish to have the life of your dreams, and to see the many plans that God has for you being fulfilled in your life, then you must continue to work hard at maintaining a purified heart. We must be diligent and continually monitor what is in our hearts. Be not afraid! God wants to bless you! Ask God to help you to overcome any obstacles. He will lead and guide you in His ways of righteousness. Psalm 51:10 NKJV “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

God’s plan for you is for you to prosper! He wants you to succeed in all areas of your life! Ensure that everything that is unworthy, or unfit for those who belong to God’s Kingdom is removed from your hearts and minds, and replaced with love and the honest desire to serve the Lord God Almighty, and you will soon see an outpouring of blessings upon you and your family, and your life will be transformed beyond anything you could ever imagine! Psalm 139:23-24 NKJV “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” Glory to God!

PS 1 Timothy 6:11-16 “But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.”

All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
