It is all I need, a new heart and a new spirit within me. This is all I ask from God, that he takes away my stony heart of me, and gives me a soft and lovable heart. A heart that can be crystal clear to know his Creator. I am here on earth to know my Father in heaven. To know who my heavenly father is. The holy spirit is testifying the truth! That changes everything inside and out. In the middle of trouble–I’ll be at peace. In the middle of the confusion, I am certain. In the middle of disobedience- I will obey and follow the path of the light- That is my mission.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26
I want the Spirit of God to change me and challenge me to be a better version of myself. Oh, how hard would it be? When you want to get a new nature but the old one is still hanging around. My human view says impossible, but God says (I AM) possible. I am stepping into a new era–that I can praise God with a real-freedom spirit.
A soft heart allows me to love my enemies- to be humble to myself. I pray for that enthusiastically. I have to wash my face with pure water every morning when I wake up and have a dream ready when I close my eyes at night.
A new spirit within me requires a dedicated, determined and surrendered heart, soul and body. The Holy Spirit will and will love to do that for me. Can I change anything? No. Can God change anything? Yes. So, I willingly gave myself to Jesus and waited. I plant with tears and I’ll harvest with a cry of joy. I practice this more to learn and go deeper into Jesus.
How can you have a new soft Heart and Spirit?
