My dearly Beloved,
May God's blessings and favor pour out on you throughout this month!
No matter how much we deny it, every soul on this Earth, is always searching for the true God. In some corner of our heart, we are yearning to know the One who has created us. The question is where and how can we find Him? Is He is for real? Here is how we can find Him.
To find God and to receive an answer from Him, purity and holiness in thoughts, words, and deeds is absolutely necessary. Several years ago, we visited the HPF Company in Ooty where high quality photo, X-ray and cinema films were being manufactured. Before we could enter that place, we were taken to a room to clean ourselves and were given a pair of sterilized footwear. A dress that covered our entire body was handed over to us. After inspecting whether we were covered thoroughly, we were taken in. We were informed that the films could get damaged even if a speck of dirt would settle on them. Hence, a clean atmosphere was required to produce these films.” Likewise, a garment of purity and holiness is the prerequisite to enter into the presence of God.
The Almighty God is pure; He is holy. The Bible in 1 Peter 1:15, 16 says: “…as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy.” Here is a story of a man of God who had the privilege to see the Lord Almighty. In his vision, he saw the Lord seated on the throne in all His glory. Angels of God were flying all around Him. But, when they drew near Him, they covered their faces with two of their wings and with the other two, they covered their feet and praised Him saying, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts” (Isaiah 6:1-3; Revelation 4:8). Unable to behold Him, and to bear His holiness and glory, the servant of God cried out saying, “Lord, I am a man of unclean lips; please save me from getting destroyed in Your holy presence.”
Beloved, as your heart beats for the Lord and your eyes strain to see the Lord God Almighty in person, strive daily to get the garment of holiness on yourself. Without this garment not one can see Him because He is holy. With every effort you take in becoming holy you are drawing closer and closer to your Creator. Draw nigh unto Him and He will draw night unto you. Now is the time.
Loving Heavenly Father, my eyes yearn to see You and my heart cries out for You. But I am unholy. Father, wash me in the blood of Jesus daily and put in me a pure and clean heart that I may enter your holy presence. As I walk the path of holiness Lord, strengthen and help me to focus on You without the deception and distractions of the world blinding me. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit who will empower me to live a holy life. Order every step of mine Lord as I walk this narrow path. Thank You Master for hearing my prayers and answering them.
In Jesus name,
