“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God —Matthew 5:8 Purity is not innocence— it is much more than that. Purity is the result of continued spiritual harmony with God.”
Some seem to see God in everything. Others seem to never see God at all. For most of us, God moves in and out of our vision. Does it seem to you that the God who is concerned with every aspect of your life, who loves you and who wants the best for you is more real on Sunday than on Monday? He is no less present on Monday. The problem is with us. Isn’t that a result of our state of spiritual harmony with Him?
After a Kairos weekend, after seeing God move with power, after being focused on Him for an entire weekend, it seems I can see Him in everything. But that vision soon begins to fade, as the dust and dirt of the world makes its way back into my life. We know that time spent with God is important and it’s not just because we have so much to learn; it’s because we need to be “in tune” with Him. We stay “in tune” with God the same way we stay “in tune” with any other being, by being in their presence. When we don’t spend time with someone, we lose touch with them. When that someone is God, a lack of contact means a lack of purity and spiritual harmony.
We are meant to live with a constant sense of God’s presence, seeing Him in every aspect of our lives. He is with us always, we must focus to recognize that presence and absorb everything He has for us.
We are blessed when our hearts are pure. We are pure when we see God. We see Him if we’ll just look. He’s always there.
Look around with God in mind and
