“ And I will give you a new heart and a new spirit I will put within you....”
I like the next part, how God will remove the heart of stone and give a heart of flesh. I know this is specifically about Israel in their defiance, but it’s what he can do and has done for us. We got hard callous hearts in this world. We needed it to deal with things. We trade something. Yes, we are harder and it protected us but we also don’t experience those joys that God created us to experience. It’s like taste buds. Yes, after our taste buds are accustomed to hot flavors, we are protected from hot things, but we don’t experience the more delectate beautys that God created us for. Our hearts aren’t the same way, we got used to alot of hard stuff in this world. We lose the delectate beauty that God made for us to experience. Our hearts are made to commune with Him. We are made to be sensitive with Him. That’s in itself a delectate beauty. We partially lost alot of that with the fall, the innocence. He wants to make us new, to experience those things that we were created for. He made us to get it all, not some. He made us for those little beautys. God is here to protect us, we don’t need to protect ourselves as much.
