Before the Lord – Day 3

A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh” Ezekiel 36:26

I see so much filth, I hear so much drama in the world and feel the pain of personal attacks. It’s hard not to become cold hearted. A great deal of the trouble I experience comes from professed believers. It seems easier to close my heart to everything and everyone rather than suffer any more hurt. However, as I become desensitized to all that is going on around me, I also become insensitive to the Lord and His moving. The inevitable outcome is a cold, callused heart toward God. More times than I care to mention, God has performed an operation on my life to break me and tender me once again. I do not like these heart breaking operations, but I need them.

My prayer today:

Dear Heavenly Father, do your work in my heart. Chisel away the calluses and give me a tender heart for thee.
