Ezekiel 36:26 – I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
As the start of the New Year is at hand, be reminded that you have been given a heart that is designed to follow after God’s purposes. A heart that is in tune with His will and His ways because it has come directly from Him. This weeks verse shows you God being the gracious giver that He is. Speaking of the wonderful salvation and transformation that God gives to His people. To those who put their faith and trust in Him, He promises to give a new heart and indwelling spirit.
David was a man after God’s own heart and you have been given a heart to follow after God as well. Your challenge this week is to listen to your new heart as it submits to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and then respond boldly to how He leads you. Listen to what God places on your heart and then quickly act upon that leading. God’s heart is to reach others with His love, so be a part of His plan and spread the blessing of belonging to Him with others. Be the person God made you to be by seeking after His heart this week.
