Promise of the Day: Matthew 5:8

in Promise of the Day


Today’s promise is Matthew 5:8:

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

Sanctification is a process, not a one-shot deal. Only the blood of Christ can cleanse us from all sin, aIndwelling Holy Spiritnd The Holy Spirit works in us daily to uncover the hidden things that keep us from the presence of God. The wise men and women in the Bible understood their need for purification. They craved God’s presence, so they prayed for Him to reveal the things in their lives that needed to be purged. They welcomed correction from The Lord because they knew less of them would mean more of Him! I want that! Don’t you?

Heavenly Father, I want more of You more than anything in this world. I know I’m far from perfect, but I am being transformed from glory to glory into Your image. Grant me the grace to nail my pride to the Cross, and yield to Your work in me, that I might know Your fullness. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Have a victorious day in The Lord!
