For as a man thinks in his heart, so he is.
— Proverbs 23:7a
We live before God according to our purity, and we live among men according to our view. Our purity decides how well we grow before God and how well we are able to understand spiritual things. Our view decides our manner of life among men and how we operate in this life (Prov. 23:7a).
When we are one with God, our view will be one with God’s view. If we are thinking the same way that God is thinking, then we are people touching God’s heart.

Thank you for this message. It went so perfectly with what I have been reading in my study of Ephesians chapter one about having an eternal view and also about being holy without blemish, pure without any foreign particle. I also heard a message today about God wanting more than for us to just see, He wants us to perceive. Went right along with Ephesians 1:18, Paul’s prayer for the saints to be given a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him!
