Three Darts Sent To Divide Our Heart

Enemies of the Pure in Heart
Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. To see God is to be an intimate friend. There’s a scripture that says, “Friendship of God is reserved for those who reverence the Lord.”
- Pride is an enemy of intimacy with God. Back in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve failed God and sin broke their fellowship. I suspect that was one of the things that hurt the most, their loss of intimacy with Father God. The couple knew no resistance until the event of their sin. The Bible plainly tells us God resist the proud.
- Duplicity is a divided heart. Let no double minded man think he will receive anything from God. A double mind with the things of God will always hinder us. Many times, lack of focus boils down to a double mind. When I catch myself with a divided focus toward the destiny of God, I’ll stop, repent and ask the Holy Spirit for right focus.
- Wrong motives work against our relationship with God. A past jail ministry leader would always say about the inmates we were inviting to come to a church service our group hosted every Thursday night in a halfway house for men, don’t worry about them coming with wrong motives. We’ve all had wrong motives (doing the right thing for the wrong reason) at one time or another. Perhaps they are coming to look at the pretty girls on our team. The fact is when they get in the church service atmosphere with worship, the Holy Spirit can work with them and convict them of any sin and wrong motives. As He does with us all; he works with us to change our heart and motives (intentions).
