“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.”
The above scripture is from the book of Ezekiel. In this particular chapter ( Ezekiel 36) the prophet is talking about the restoration for Israel.
See Israel was God’s chosen people. God delivered them from Egypt but during their journey to the promise land they got distracted, mislead, attacked by their enemies, and worshiped false idols. During this journey’ Israel spirit became broken and their hearts harden. God wanted to save Israel and bring them back to the land He promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. So through this prophecy that Ezekiel shared with them he was prophesying what God’s will for them was. God wanted to clean them, make them new. He wanted to give them a new heart and spirit so that they would follow Gods law so they could take them back to the land that He promised their ancestors.
Can anyone relate to the people of Israel? Has God promised you something but through your disobedience, worship of worldly things, distractions from the opposite sex, or being consumed by negative and toxic people caused you to lost your way and just don’t know how to get back to the promise that He has for you?
Well the best way to get back to the promises that God has for your life is to submit to His Will. Follow His Word so that He can clean you off inside. Let Him remove all the worldly dirty that has consumed you., so He can give you a clean heart and a new spirit.
When you allow Him to take you back from the darkness to the light, He will defeat your enemies, remove distractions, give you focus, and guide you back to where you are supposed to be.
