Beatitudes: Building Godly Character in Women | The Pure in Heart w Diana de Fouler

July 8, 2024 • 37:02 • Stacy Callender

Pure in heart is being made clean by the Spirit, by the Word. It is putting God in every thought, word and action. And keeping Him present in our day-to-day lives. Today we continue in our series, Beatitudes: Building Godly Character in the Woman of God, by welcoming back our Central America Director, Diana de Fouler. We dive into the sixth beatitude, Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Diana reminds us that our sin has not just been covered, but completely removed. As we look to Him and Who He is, confess and let His Word wash over us, we will find the freedom of a pure heart.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 ESV

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11 NIV

For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our[g] conscience from dead works to serve the living God. Hebrews 9:13-14 ESV

Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?

    And who shall stand in his holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

    who does not lift up his soul to what is false

    and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4 ESV

SCRIPTURES

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9 ESV

For while we were still helpless, at the right time, Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6 CSB

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. Romans 5:1, 10 ESV

Everything is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:18 CSB

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves. Everyone should look not to his own interests, but rather to the interests of others.

Adopt the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus,

who, existing in the form of God,

did not consider equality with God

as something to be exploited.

Instead he emptied himself

by assuming the form of a servant,

taking on the likeness of humanity.

And when he had come as a man,

he humbled himself by becoming obedient

to the point of death

even to death on a cross. Philippians 2:3-8 CSB

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of Gods mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to Godthis is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1 NIV

Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. Romans 14:19 NIV

We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers and sisters. The one who does not love remains in death. 1 John 3:14 CSB

We dive into the fifth beatitude, Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy. Georgene draws us into the merciful heart of our Father and shows us how we can extend that same mercy to those around us. It isnt always what we give, but also what we withhold.

SCRIPTURES

Make the soul of Your servant joyful, For to You, Lord, I lift up my soul. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all who call upon You. Psalm 86:4-5 ESV

 What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. 1 Corinthians 2:9 ESV

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8 NIV

Let us then approach Gods throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16 NIV

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before You. Psalm 89:14 NASB 

The LORD is merciful and gracious,

    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

He will not always chide,

    nor will he keep his anger forever.

He does not deal with us according to our sins,

    nor repay us according to our iniquities.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

    so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

as far as the east is from the west,

    so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

As a father shows compassion to his children,

    so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. Psalm 103:8-13 ESV 

 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Luke 6:38 NIV

Beatitudes: Building Godly Character in Women | Hunger & Thirst for Righteousness w Lorielle Agraso

The God of the universe tells us to just bring our appetites and He will take care of the rest. Today we continue in our series, Beatitudes: Building Godly Character in the Woman of God, by welcoming mom of three, Lorielle Agraso. We dive into the fourth beatitude, Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Lorielle reminds us about the fullness of life that comes as we seek God and the things of Him. She helps us step away from the world and into the goodness of God.

The Moms in Prayer Podcast is a part of the Christian Parenting Podcast Network. To find practical and spiritual advice to help you grow into the parent you want to be visit ChristianParenting.org

ABOUT OUR GUEST

Lorielle Agraso is a follower of Jesus with a heart for revival and God's truth. She became a stay-at-home mom after her first of three was born. Her husband Gabe, is often traveling for work, and she found a deeper calling for her home and family as she learned to trust God in much of the solitary time. She was born and raised in Southern California, but recently moved to middle Tennessee, where the family has lived for almost 4 years. This was a big leap of faith, drenched in much prayer, but Lorielle found peace in surrendering what she once controlled, to dive deeper into what God was providing their family. They now live on 16 acres with 3 children (1 girl and 2 boys), 24 chickens, 6 ducks, 5 dogs and 2 kittens with hopes to add additional animals in the years to come. She loves growing her garden, cooking, trying new things and having friends and family over for game nights. Her faith has become her biggest adventure and each season she looks forward to the time spent with God as He plants new seeds and brings her into the next chapters He intends her walk to through.

SCRIPTURES

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew 5:6 ESV

Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the Lord promised on oath to your ancestors. Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:1-3 NIV

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Psalm 34:8 NIV

Meanwhile his disciples urged him, Rabbi, eat something. But he said to them, I have food to eat that you know nothing about. Then his disciples said to each other, Could someone have brought him food? My food, said Jesus, is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. John 4:31-34 NIV

O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;

    my soul thirsts for you;

my flesh faints for you,

    as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,

    and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, Psalm 63:1 & 5 ESV

You prepare a table before me

    in the presence of my enemies. Psalm 23:5a NIV

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. Romans 14:17-18 ESV

SCRIPTURES

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 ESV

Cease from anger and abandon wrath;

Do not get upset; it leads only to evildoing.

For evildoers will be eliminated,

But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.

Yet a little while and the wicked person will be no more;

And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.

But the humble will inherit the land

And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity. Psalm 37:8-11 NASB

Then I will purify the lips of the peoples,

    that all of them may call on the name of the Lord

    and serve him shoulder to shoulder.

From beyond the rivers of Cush

    my worshipers, my scattered people,

    will bring me offerings.

On that day you, Jerusalem, will not be put to shame

    for all the wrongs you have done to me,

because I will remove from you

    your arrogant boasters.

Never again will you be haughty

    on my holy hill.

But I will leave within you

    the meek and humble.

The remnant of Israel

    will trust in the name of the Lord.

They will do no wrong;

    they will tell no lies. Zephaniah 3:9-13a NIV

Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth. Numbers 12:3 NIV

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 ESV

Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christwho in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you. 2 Corinthians 10:1 NKJV
