THE HEART AND THE CLEANSING FIRE- EVNG LAWRENCE OYOR

THE HEART AND THE CLEANSING FIRE!
 Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. This scripture shows that it is the heart of man that has dealings with God. It is the heart that encounters God. It is the heart that God trusts, lifts or promotes. The heart of a man is very instrumental to the results he would get with his hands. This was what made David who he was. He led and ruled by the integrity of his heart before the skillfulness of his hands. In fact, prayer is only as dangerous as the heart wielding the authority. This is why one of the major limitation to the prayer enterprise is the heart of man. Whoever has journeyed into any depths in God has received a badge of trust from God. He has had a track record, and God had perfected certain encodings into his heart, because no man is greater or can be greater than his heart. All a man is has been perfected into his heart. This is clearly stated in Ps.24.3 – 5 WHO shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? HE that hath CLEAN HANDS, and a PURE HEART; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. HE shall RECEIVE the BLESSING from the LORD, and RIGHTEOUSNESS from the God of his salvation. Nothing with God is an accident. He is delicate and intentional. He is primarily concerned about the state of your heart. The capacity of every man is in his heart. The reality of God that you have embodied is that which has been worked into your heart. The one who rises to become very relevant to the agenda of God is that one whose heart has gone through the fires of purification in Gods presence. It is very important therefore to be deliberate about guarding your heart and ensuring the health of your heart. Tell God not to let you be until your heart is pure, until you are healed. The heart of man is innately and desperately wicked. That heart is of no use to God and must be healed. Thus, as we journey into the coming days when Gods hand is being revealed across the earth as he searches for vessels who would embody His heart, we must ensure we present ourselves…we must make sure we come to the consuming fire where the infirmity and deformity of our heart will be taken away and we rise anew in purity of heart and soul. We must come to the place where the fire cleanses. Stay beholding His face until your heart is helped and becomes tender. The blessing of great encounters with God and light is locked in the purity of a heart. The weight of encounters you have are determined by the quality of heart one has. It is the quality of heart that determines the quality of encounters. The reason children has their angels always before the father is because of the posture of their heart. Once the heart is right, there’s no limit to how much light the soul can trap. Your results are in your heart posture. As much as sacrifices are important, they would only count and be weighty as much as the heart is right. Only the pure in heart will see God. (Matthew 5:8) Evang Lawrence Oyor.
