“Purity brings clarity.”
– J. D. Greear, referring to Matthew 5:8: “Blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”
Do you truly want to know God? Do you really want to know His heart? His will? Then ask yourself this question: “Is there willful disobedience in my heart?” If there is, never expect to “see” God, for your understanding will remained darkened by the sin you desire more than Him.
