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 an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. Ezekiel 36:26-27
In meditating on the scriptures while staying abreast with current events, headline news, and trends, one condition that's currently holding my attention is the atrocious level of "cold hardheartedness." The Bible is clear that in the last days the hearts of men will wax colder, but to actually see, hear, and experience it on a daily basis is mind blowing to say the least. We're in a world where no one blinks an eye at the abandonment, neglect, and murder of our innocent children. We don't skip a beat in light of the culling of, increased disregard for, and unjust abuse and treatment of the elderly. We're on the brink of societal chaos that's meant to bring about a "New Order," and all we really seem to want to know is what celebrity did what with whom. Or what was the final score?! Or what's the latest plans for getting "turnt up" this weekend?! The current attitude, atmosphere, or darkness that has engulfed our nation is a result of the rejection and hardening of our hearts towards the Spirit of God. We are a morally bankrupted people in line for judgment due to our inability to succumb to the Spirit of God and His promptings to allow Him to come into hearts, perform heart surgery, and give us hearts of flesh that leads to life and the edification of humanity.
Our heart as a nation has grown cold towards the things of God, and we're only beginning to see the fruits of our actions. I've been auditing myself lately and have noticed this phenomena even occurring in certain areas of my life which has propelled this issue to the forefront of my daily contemplation. The Spirit is asking me to give up certain strongholds, thoughts, and emotions that's hindering my growth and placing unproductive burdens on my spiritual back causing me to stumble and stunt my maturity. A hard heart can extinguish the work of the Father in your life, and if you're not careful, it can lead to a callousness that brings about spiritual destruction. It's essential to our relationship with Christ and one another to keep our hearts, pure, clean, and untethered to the negative emotions and strongholds that can lead one to ultimately hinder the full manifestation of freedom in faith in your life. At some point the decision to "let go and let God" has to be made. It's the goal of the Father to present His son Jesus Christ with a bride that's pure in all areas of her life.
Jesus is looking for a mature bride without a spot or wrinkle in her wedding garments, or a blemish in her appearance. He's looking for a "mature mama" who'll be ready, willing, and pleasing to Him excited in anticipation of complete intimacy and oneness! Thus, a spiritual audit is always in order to make sure that we're open and receptive to His promptings and instructions to remain prepared. Allow Him to give the heart of flesh.
In short, as our nation and humanity descends into the abyss of coldness, darkness, and pure unadulterated evil, we're admonished to be whole in all areas of our existence so that the love of Jesus can take root in lives, watering the good seed of His Word, in order to bring to maturity good fruit! We're to be whole in body, soul, and spirit as a result of walking in the spirit following the instructions and commands of Jesus Christ. The spirit of the world is cold and hard, thus training you to live for self, but the Spirit of God is tugging at us for the opportunity to come in to our lives to perform heart surgery on us so that we can have a good life here in the "here and now," as well as in the next life to come! Just...let...it...go! Open your heart and let'em do His work. It will hurt and be traumatic, but it's for your good and not for your destruction! May the grace of our lord be with you always!
