Apostle Grace Lubega
Proverbs 9:1(KJV): Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
The purity of the heart of a man determines the clarity of their vision of the things of the spirit. Clarity of vision in turn determines what a man manifests or what he becomes in the earthly realm because we become what we behold.
In Matthew 5:8, the Lord said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, they will see God.”
Why do some people seek God endlessly, on mountains, in valleys and through earnest cries lifted up to heaven but they do not see Him?
More often than not, it is because of the purity of their hearts. A pure spirit seeks God for what His heart can reveal and not for what His hand can give. This is part of Godly wisdom.
He says, seek and you shall find(Matthew 7:7). But wisdom reconciles the difference between the seeking and the finding and says that why you seek for something determines what you find.
Child of God, why are you believing God for a big ministry? Why are you fasting and praying for a greater business? Why do you want that leap in your career? Is it to revenge against those who did not believe in you or is it for the expansion of the kingdom and for the glory of God? Why?
Do some soul searching and ask yourself these questions. You must allow God to examine your heart and purify your motives. In doing so, the eyes of your spirit will see greater purpose and not just the desire to accumulate physical and material possessions.
