Christian Devotional – April 25, 2013


Ezekiel 11:19–I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.


The Lord, speaking to Ezekiel, tells him that even with the judgment that He is bringing on Israel, God will not completely destroy them. God will restore the remnant of people who turn back to Him. God then states in this verse that He will give them a new heart. He will take the old, hard heart and replace it with a new, soft heart that is capable of being moved and prompted by the Spirit of God. Are we following God and being moved and impressed upon by Him? Do we have a heart of stone or have we allowed Him to give us a heart of flesh?


Father, I want to be moved and touched by the things that move and touch You. I desire Your heart in all things. Remove any remaining part of my heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh!
