Ever wished to see God face-to-face and have a personal conversation with him. Some say God speaks with them on a regular basis, even day-to-day. Some people even say they see God daily. The desire to see God face-to-face and to have a conversation with God is strong when you love Him.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”
God has placed in the heart of every man and woman an irrepressible desire for happiness, for fulfillment. To approach God freely, to see him and to be close to him was part of his plan for us from the beginning; his divine light was meant to illumine every human relationship.
The inner compass which had guided them in their quest for happiness lost its point of reference and the attractions of power, wealth, possessions and a desire for pleasure at all costs, led us to the abyss of sorrow and anguish. From that time on, we were no longer capable of closeness to God. In Christ you find fullness, your every desire for goodness and happiness.
It was Moses who spoke to God as a friend speaks to friend. It is Moses who spoke to God face-to-face and mouth-to-mouth.
“Then the Lord descended in a pillar of cloud, stood at the entrance to the tent, and summoned Aaron and Miriam. When the two of them came forward,
6 he said:“Listen to what I say:
If there is a prophet among you from the Lord,
I make myself known to him in a vision;
I speak with him in a dream.
7 Not so with my servant Moses;
he is faithful in all my household.
8 I speak with him directly,
openly, and not in riddles;
he sees the form of the Lord.”
The Lord’s invitation to encounter him is made to each of you, in whatever place or situation you find yourself. The Lord wants to meet us, to let him “be seen” by us.
If you pray, do you know that you can speak with Jesus, with the Father, with the Holy Spirit as you speak to a friend. Let God’s word speak to your heart and enlighten your path. A pure heart is necessarily one which has been stripped bare, a heart that knows how to bend down and share its life with those most in need.
