A PURE HEART – HOW CAN WE HAVE IT?

Go Directly to the Lord

Spread the love

Jer. 29:12-13 “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Our Lord wanted us to talk to Him. He wants us to confess our sins to Him. Based on the verse above, we will find Him if we will just seek Him. When the son of the Shunammite Woman died, she made a long journey to meet the prophet Elisha hoping that Elisha could do something for her son to live again (2 Kings 4:24-31). But then it was Elisha’s servant, Gehazi, who meets her. When Gehazi asks her what’s wrong, she doesn’t tell him what is going on. She knows that if she is to get an answer or deliverance she has to go straight to the top!

Why talk to Gehazi when you could talk to Elisha? Or, for a modern-day equivalent, why talk or confess your sins to a ‘Priest’ when instead you can talk straight to God? A ‘Priest’ has no authority to forgive you of your sins as Gehazi and has no authority to raise the dead… not at all! God wants to hear from you personally. Go to Him!
