The people of Israel had made God very upset, but He still promised them that He would give their land back to them. And beyond that, He would give them a desire to respect God completely, a new way of thinking, and an obedient heart of flesh.
How many times do I put things (idols even) ahead of God? I am no better than some of people in this time of Ezekiel. But I do try to keep my heart tender, and look to God in trust and with respect for Him and His ways.
Lord, Your faithfulness is beyond comprehension sometimes. How can You love us so much, and do so much for us even when we fail to do right? I do thank You. I love You, and give myself to You, and trust You. AMEN
Lord, I will continue to put my hope and trust in You. You show me Your love. Your love is always right and fair. Thank You. Psalm 33
18 “When they come to this land, they will remove all the evil idols and all the hateful images. 19 I will give them a desire to respect me completely, and I will put inside them a new way of thinking. I will take out the stubborn heart of stone from their bodies, and I will give them an obedient heart of flesh. 20 Then they will live by my rules and obey my laws and keep them. They will be my people, and I will be their God. 21 But those who want to serve their evil statues and hateful idols, I will pay back for their evil ways, says the Lord GOD.” (Ezekiel 11:18-21 NCV)
