Hebrews 8:10 – For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Notice that three times in this one verse God says “I will…” do something for you. The old covenant says what man must do to get to God and the new covenant says what God will do to make access for you to get to Him. By putting His law in your mind you will come to know His word, by writing His word on your heart you will come to love the scriptures. In other words, you will want to obey Him and His word, not through fear of punishment but through genuine love for Him. The laws will no longer only be written on stone tablets but also on the fleshly tables of your heart. God changes the relationship between man and Himself by no longer being worshipped from a distance. He has brought you near to Himself by dying on a cross for your sins, so that you have become reconciled with God and will forever be a recipient of His grace.
Do you have the word of God as a resource that you depend on for yourself and that is available to you to share with others in need? Having the word in your mind and in your heart better equips you for whatever may come up in your life. Because when a trial presents itself in your life, it is the bible that will carry you through to victory. The challenge I have for you this week is to first rely on the scriptures before you seek any other source of assistance. Before you call your best friend and ask for prayer, take a moment to pray yourself and ask God to put His word into your thoughts. Prior to seeking any godly counsel here on earth, open your bible and ask the Holy Spirit to speak to your specific need through the word. When the enemy tries to accuse you and speak lies to you, rebuke him and proclaim the truth of scripture over yourself and be reminded of how much God loves you and has already forgiven you. May His word lead you every step of the way this week. God bless you.
