I CAN’T SEE GOD ……..BECAUSE I’M IN THE WAY

BARRIERS TO SEEING GOD
five barriers that keep us from seeing God is Illustrated by putting your hand in front of your face.
HOW TO SEE GOD CLEARLY
1. Give up on religion and go for a relationship with God .
“I (Jesus) am the way, the truth, and the life. No one may come to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
2. Quit waiting for eternal life and start experiencing it right now .
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 (nkjv)
3.. Relax about finding God’s will for your life .
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is Romans 12:2 (niv)
“Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart” Psalm 37:4 (niv)
4. Let the Bible speak for itself instead of trying to make it say what you want it to .
For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (niv)
5. Find a higher calling than just being happy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Matthew 5:8 (niv)
