Heart of Stone

Tonight I was reading in Ezekiel chapter 36, and as I read it the words changed in my head and bore testimony to me of the power of our Lord Jesus Christ.  I felt impressed to share what I had read and pray that it will touch the spirit of someone in need.

Ezekiel 36:25-36 (modified) 
Then You sprinkled clean water upon me, and I was clean; from all my filthiness and all my addictions, did You cleanse me.  A new heart also You gave me, and a new spirit did You put within me: and You took away the stony heart out of my flesh, and You gave me an heart of flesh.  And You put Your spirit within me, and caused me to walk in Your statutes, and I will keep Your judgements and do them.  And I will dwell in the land that You gave my fathers; and I will be your daughter, and You will be my God.  You saved me from all my uncleanness's...And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden, or in other words, this woman who was filthy and sinful is become clean and pure through the atonement of Jesus Christ...Then the heathen that are left round about me shall know that You the Lord build the ruined places, and plant that was desolate: You the Lord have spoken it, and You have done it. 
I testify to you that Jesus Christ can, and will, change our very hearts.  If we allow Him to, He will take our desolate selves and turn us into the Garden of Eden.  It is not an easy process and it is not a fast process, but it is real.  My heart, that was stone, has been changed for a heart of flesh.

In the name of My Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, amen.

  1. Beautiful reminder that not only do we need to believe IN God but to Believe Him. Believe that what he says he can do he will do.

Thank you for sharing a moment with me:-)

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
