Daily D – Ezekiel 11:19-20
Ezekiel 11:19, 20
“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. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.” (NIV)
“And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart, so they will obey my decrees and regulations. Then they will truly be my people, and I will be their God.” (NLT)
God’s gifts improve everything. He provides focus and devotion overflowing into frictionless relationships of settled joy.
Hard-hearted people are not condemned to stay that way. There is an offer on the table for renewal. Rough edges are smoothed. Hard words grow soft and kind. Demands turn into discussions arriving at joint conclusions.
Bossypants are exchanged for leisure wear of exquisite styling.
Expectations are recalibrated toward peaceful delight.
Vocabularies are coated in honey and expressed with edifying kindness.
How’s your heart today?
I will receive God’s gift of a softer heart and purpose-filled life.
Our Father, as King David prayed millennia ago, “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me,” (Psalm 51:10). Give me singleness of purpose expanding into overflowing abundance and frictionless relationships of settled joy. Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
