“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.” ~EZEKIEL 36:26
The Lord, through the New Covenant of Grace, enacted by Christ’s finished work on the cross and subsequent resurrection, has given each of us who believe in Him a new heart! And this is not just any heart, but a heart shaped like His and filled with His desires.
That old stony, deceptive heart, that often was guided by the draw of our sin nature (JEREMIAH 17:9), He has removed.
If there is a desire burning in your heart and your heart is indeed Christ’s, trust it. Trust the purpose and plan that He is stirring up within you. And if you are still uncertain, take it to Him and lay it at His precious feet, knowing that He will settle matters within you.
Trust how He moves your heart with confidence in His love and shedding of all fear because of His love for you (I JOHN 4:16-19).
Don’t let unbelief and fear cause you to fall away from your faith in Him, His finished work, and call for your future (HEBREWS 3:5-15).
Pursue Him in what you need to do in order to honor Him by pursuing the passion He has placed within your new heart!
