Today's Daily Devotional

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

05/07/09 Ezekiel 36:26 supports this verse beautifully. It tells us that God will give us a new heart and put a new spirit within us. He will replace out heart of stone with a heart of flesh. He will trade our hardened heart for a softened one. By replacing our heart, God replaces our inner self. He replaces our mind. He gives us the ability to choose His will. Our understanding increases. He fills us with courage. He fills us with His power. In Jeremiah 31:33, the Lord says that He will write His law on our hearts. This got me thinking. Since the Author of scripture lives within us, shouldn’t we already know scripture? Isn’t it incredible how this becomes the case as we get closer to God through His Word?!?!
