Ezekiel 36:26 ” I will give you a new heart and put a new Spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”

In order for God to work in anyone’s life there has to be desire and a willingness for change. But when the heart and mind are hardened against anything of God it’s very difficult…but never impossible for God to work. Many places within this Book God admonishes His people to rid themselves of their offenses and get a new heart and new Spirit. He even proclaims in Ezekiel 11:19 that, “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new Spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.” So why is this exchange so vitally important? Stoney hearts are filled with pride, rebellion, and selfishness…while hearts of flesh have a desire for forgiveness and restoration. Hearts of stone are filled with deception and self-will…while hearts of flesh see ourselves as we truly are, weak, mortal beings desperately in need of a Savior.
