Verse of the day.
Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion, as in the day of trial in the wilderness,
The human heart tends to be puffed up when surrounded by comfort and ease, and frustrated in the day of want and trials. This often stirs up rebellion and disobedience against God.
But God is Love.
Not only are our sins and rebellion forgiven by Him through the death of His Son Jesus, but by His Life have all things which pertain to living out the Life of God been freely given to us. Thus, we who had no hope of salvation, now have no excuse to displease God.

Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion,
God has long seen the possibility of this and provided for our victory.
- The Word of God revealed to us by His Spirit convicts, teaches and exposes us to God’s Light. This makes us able to obey God.
- God has given us a new, better and living covenant, by which we can now obey Him.
Unlike those who lived by the old covenant, who lived by the strength of their heart and will, we have been offered the possibility of a heart exchange, and this is where it all begins. We cannot serve God in acts if we haven’t received His heart and offered up ours to Him. This differentiates our walk with Him.
A heart exchange with God begets a heart in us that is sensitive and responds to His will (Ezekiel 36:26). Such a heart, if drawn from, can only produce obedience for it is already one with God.

Father, I appreciate the gift of Your heart which You have freely given. I receive this heart, draw strength from it and am made obedient to You, Your Word and Your Spirit.
