“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Ezekiel 36:25-28

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The Lord God says this…

I shall pour clean water over you and you will be cleansed…

I shall give you a new heart, and put a new Spirit in you;

I shall remove the heart of stone from your bodies

and give you a heart of flesh instead.

I shall put my Spirit in you…

You shall be my people and I will be your God.

.

– Ezekiel 36:25a,26-27a,28b (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

Throughout the ages,

prophets have predicted that the day would come

when God would give His Spirit freely to humankind.

Those who turned to Him and received His Spirit would be changed.

They would be new men and women…with a new life.

.

A stony heart does not give life to man,

cannot be moulded by God,

and cannot welcome God.

It has no room for anyone else by itself.

A natural heart, given by God and filled with God’s Spirit,

is a heart that gives life,

allows God to teach it and form it according to His law,

and is a place where God can reign.

.

Those who turned to Him and received His Spirit would be changed.

Do I want to be changed?

Do I have this yearning to turn to the Lord my God

and seek to be cleansed and renewed?

Do I desire to purposefully open my heart to the Holy Spirit;

to let Him breathe new life into me;

to change me into a person of love and compassion;

and to make me more and more like Jesus?

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Holy Spirit, come into my heart,

take over and breathe into me Your breath of life.
