God has done a new thing for His people. Through His eternally present Spirit, God’s words and ways have now been put within our minds and hearts. They are intimately and powerfully available to shape us, guide us, heal us, renew us and transform us as the people of God!
Will we let them?
“This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” – Jeremiah 31:33
Will we quiet ourselves enough to listen for the incredible truth God is telling us? He is ours. We are His. Through God’s Spirit and the power of His Word, our Holy God takes up residence in our minds and hearts. He is not only with us – our God is within us!
Think about this, really quiet yourself and breathe in deeply this amazing truth. God makes this covenant, this beautiful, holy, eternal promise to us: We belong to Him and He to us. Our God promises that His law – His life-giving, peace-bringing, strength-empowering words and ways – will be placed purposefully within our minds and hearts. Revealing us to be His people.
Our God desires, and has made Himself outrageously available, to be in relationship with us. We were created to find, know and live in an intimate and powerful relationship with our Eternal Abba, experiencing our deepest fulfillment, strength, hope, purpose, peace, joy and love in His presence. And our God has placed His very presence, His Holy Spirit, within us.
How are you letting God’s law of love, grace and truth – made intimately known to us by the indwelling of His Spirit – fill and rule over your mind and heart?
How are you letting all that God has put on your mind and written on your heart be known and experienced by others in your life?
With the Lord as your God and you as His child, how are you letting this incredible, mystical relationship – this beautiful, life-transforming covenant between God and you – make a renewing, inward and outward difference in you?
With the Lord as your God and you as His child, how are you letting this incredible, mystical relationship – this beautiful, life-transforming covenant between God and you – be made known in tangible, observable, living and loving ways to those around you?
Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. – Deuteronomy 7:9
Our God is faithful to His covenant of love given to us! May all of us be faithful in keeping God’s covenant and His law, put on our minds and written on our hearts, so that we will be powerfully transformed, revealing to all around us the Mind and Heart of our Holy God!
