“And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” (Ezekiel 36:26, ESV)
One of God’s highest goals for your life is the softening of your heart. Without a tender heart, you cannot believe. Without sensitivity to His Spirit, you will struggle moving into an expanding future. Fear will dominate rather than the joy of your healing.
Obviously, God cannot do this by imposing His will upon your heart, but He can inspire us for the possibilities for which we’re wired. He reveals. He deposits new thoughts. And by our belief, He transforms the world around us.
I want to encourage you at the beginning of your day to be tender and pliable to the Spirit’s inspiration. You really can’t escape Him. He’s there with you, right now, as you are reading this. Listen. Give yourself to a higher purpose, or another’s healing. You are God’s response to a lost world.
