I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you. I will remove the heart of stone from your body and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26 NET
God doesn’t do anything halfway. When He moves in your life, it isn’t a gimmick. He doesn’t offer you snake oil. He gives you the real deal!
When you humble yourself and become fully His, He takes your heart of stone, a heart that is stubborn and only wants to do things its own way, and gives you a heart that is new.
This heart of flesh is responsive to God. It causes you to want to live for and be pleasing to Him.
He puts a new spirit within you too! This spirit is from Him, not from the world. It is God Himself who has taken up residence in you, just like Jesus said before He died and resurrected. It is the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead!
With all the newness of your life, God has made a way for you to honor and glorify Him in your everyday life.
Don’t settle back to the way things used to be. Seek Him more! Draw closer to Him! He rewards those who diligently seek Him! Everything about God is perfect! You will not be disappointed!
Father, thank You that You have blessed us with so much while we live here on Earth. But we know that it is only a taste of what is waiting for us in Heaven. Help us so that our lives glorify You here and give us the joy of expectation for what awaits us there.
