"And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh."(Ezekiel 11:19)
How GRACIOUS is that?!
Oh, how I love and admire the luscious heart of God!
Think about what He's saying in that verse, friends. His intent is complete restoration of our mournful lives. He will abolish sin and the separations caused by sin in giving us "one" heart - that speaks of restored UNITY in His Spirit.
He will restore us to LIFE in wholeness, health, and healing in that He will also put a "new" spirit within us. He will grant us all the compassion of the Father in ability to forgive and show unconditional love in that He promises He will "take the stony heart out" of our flesh and give us "a heart of flesh"... Oh, thank You, Jesus - I know I am especially in need of that! Hallelujah!
Complete and total restoration of us from the havoc and wreckage of our sins makes the heart of the Father GLAD on our behalf, Saints! Those are the merciful plans He has for us. It's what makes life worth living and links eternally the heart of the Living God to ours.
Be blessed today!
