Yet I ask myself, “How did He know it was all she had to live on?” It’s easy, with hindsight, to say it was because He was the Messiah, but He was the Messiah clothed with humanity. At this point in His life it is most likely to have been the gift of knowledge [1 Corinthians 12:8] working through the power of the Holy Spirit. [Yahshua manifested all the gifts during His ministry.] What a Saviour, what an example.
He read hearts with ease when here on earth; how much more so now, when He knows all things? As I mused on this I wondered how my own heart stands up to His scrutiny. He sees beyond what we do to the motives which drive us, the passions which rule us, the hopes, the fears and the loves which control us. I find myself asking, “How pure is pure?” To be noticed by Him is both wonderful and awesome. Purity of heart is an ongoing condition. [2 Corinthians 7:1] I pray I will never become complacent about it, but always be open to His gaze and willing to make changes at His prompting. I dare to hope that, through the power of Yahshua’s cleansing blood, and with direction from His Holy Spirit I will, one day, be part of that company of whom Yahshua said, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see Yahweh.” [Matthew 5:8]
