“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD”
The heart is the path through which God does His greatest work on and in the believer. When we come before God we should always examine the condition of our heart. God responds to sincere prayers and petitions; have you forgiven someone who has wronged you, are you holding a grudge, is your request centered on self (a need or a want)? Part of sanctification is the changing of our hearts into a Christ-like nature.
