Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
My prayer is to open my spiritual sight that all but the majesty and glory of our Lord fill my vision. Seeing God is the result of healing our blindness. The healing process comes from my humble devotion to my Lord and His Word, having no aspiration greater than bringing Him pleasure. Looking full into the face of Jesus Christ causes my peripheral vision to fade – the world and all of its enticement grows less interesting each day. 
The presence of our Lord may well excite our senses, but the fullness of Jesus must be birthed deep within our soul. True revival takes place in the heart of men as they are gripped with a passion to please God. A pure heart is not a perfect heart – it is a humble, broken and contrite heart seeking to walk in holiness and obedience with our Lord. Seeing God is a visceral experience that becomes more real than our physical experiences as we give ourselves to faith and hope in Christ and His Word. The pursuit of God is initiated by God’s pursuit of man. 
The realization and experience of our Lord comes to those who seek to know and obey Him with all their heart, soul and mind. We will never experience true contentment without absolute surrender to our eternal calling through Jesus Christ. Our Lord’s Word is absolute truth – it is not subject to the changing values and desires of humanistic standards.
