DAY 22 WEDNESDAY: JULY 2020

YOU HAVE A NEW HEART IN LIFE!

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. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them (Ezekiel 36:26-27).

As a Christian, you have a new heart because God has taken away the heart of stone within you and replaced it with a heart of flesh in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that 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. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he has a new heart and a new spirit in life. A new heart with God brings a new spirit which is directly proportional to being born again in life forever.

Everyone who is born again has received a new heart from God in life. This is the heart that yearns and thirsts for God daily in life. A heart that is full of gratitude and humility in life. The Bible describes this kind of heart in Psalm 42:1 thus, “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, o God.” Therefore, a new heart is a heart that pants after God and wins souls into God’s kingdom in life. The heart that pants after God is a heart of godly fruitfulness; such a heart is a brand new and transformed heart from God in life. Hence, a heart that is full of gratitude and appreciation to God in life forever.

This brand new heart from God makes you a new personality, breed, specie with a new creation in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” In fact, the new heart is a heart that had been transformed and renewed into a new personality in Christ Jesus. The new heart from God transforms a person into a new creation in life. Without this new heart from God, one is yet to be regenerated and transformed into a new personality in Christ Jesus forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to have a brand new and transformed heart from God for better renewal and spiritual growth forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 11:19).
