James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. How many of us have prayed this prayer before? "Lord, purify my heart and take out anything that is not like You." If you raised your hand, then you know that this is one of those prayers that just feels right when you pray it. It sounds so pious
Exodus 3:4-5 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Have you ever wondered why God asked Moses to take his shoes off? Well, the surface level answer is already given to us when God explains that the place where Moses was standing was holy ground.
