“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
What if God had some sort of Lasik eye surgery for our hearts, so that we could see Him more clearly? Because we know, if we can see Him more clearly we will continue on this journey of loving Him with more of our hearts.
Good news, He does! We find many passages in scripture to run to when we need our hearts cleansed. Here’s one:
Psalm 51: 7-12
7Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins
and blot out all my iniquity.
10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Did you see that, sisters? the psalmist lets us in on a secret here…
IT’S THE LORD WHO PURIFIES OUR HEARTS.
With the heart of a loving, perfect father, laid bare before him, we ask Him
to BLOT OUT
and UPHOLD us.
Pick the word that most speaks to you above insert it in the sentence below. Let this be your prayer for a purer heart to see and love him more.
Lord, _______________________ my heart. By the blood of Jesus I come. Amen.
He is so faithful. Only a HOLY God can purify a human heart to be able to see a Him for who He really is:
ABUNDANT in MERCY.
BETTER THAN ANY WORDS.
Praying for you, sweet sisters!
Loving Him with MORE of our HEARTS by evaluating our treasure is tomorrow!
New Here? See what’s going on below.
What if you could ask Jesus what the most important thing is?
Wouldn’t it simplify your life? Wouldn’t it help you narrow your focus, time and energy?
Wouldn’t it help you truly live?
I’ve got good news, sisters! He has answered this question already in His Word, and His answer is just as much for us today as it was for those who asked it when he walked the earth.
Here’s the Story:
“One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the debate. He realized that Jesus had answered well, so he asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?
Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these.” Mark 12:28-31
Love the Lord with ALL of your HEART, SOUL, MIND, and STRENGTH
But how? What does that mean in real life?
This is a question I’ve been asking myself for years, so I sat down searched His Word for direction, put it into a devotional format, and I want to journey through it with you!
Tell me about the Study!
It’s a four week study
Week 1: Heart
Week 2: Soul
Week 4: Strength
Each week has 5 days of study that you need just 15 minutes to complete
Each day of the study consists of two pages. The first page starts with a short prayer, a short passage of scripture to read, and reflective questions. The second page is a beautiful display of His Word, with a sequence of receiving His Word in love, Giving God love in return through applying His Word to our lives, and making a plan to love others, helping us to be intentional about fulfilling the greatest commandment!
I’ll be blogging through the study right here everyday, so don’t forget to follow the blog to receive emails on weekdays.
I will also be posting one video a week on Sundays to get you motivated and keep you ready to start the next week with some insight and encouragement to help you along the way!!!
Can’t buy the study? No worries! I’ll be posting a free scripture writing plan that correlates to the material and posting it here on Monday.
We want you here to engage in God’s Word in a personal way and know Jesus more intimately!
