Many people struggle with allergies. Allergies tend to flare up when dust and pollen in the air make it difficult to catch your breath. You can’t breathe properly because of all the stuff in the air. Your nose gets stuffed up, your eyes get runny, and your head feels congested. It isn’t any fun. These symptoms arise because the air you’ve inhaled has been contaminated by allergens. 
Those who struggle with allergies look forward to days when the air is clearer and cleaner. They are glad when a fresh rain clears the skies so that the allergens can no longer make them feel so miserable. 
When it comes to the air we breathe, purity is what we are looking for.
When it comes to the air we breathe, purity is what we are looking for.
And purity is what God is looking for in the character of His people. As Jesus says in the sermon on the mount, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.”
God desires that our hearts be free from pollutants, irritants and impurities.
God desires that our hearts be free from pollutants, irritants and impurities. He seeks followers whose hearts are unmixed, undivided and undiluted in their love for Him. And when He finds a follower who fits that design, He delivers a unique blessing in that He reveals Himself to them on a whole other level. 
If you are not seeing God at work in your life it might be because your spiritual system is contaminated with the pollutants of our culture. In order to see God up close and personal, keep your heart pure and undefiled. Love Him with everything inside of you.
