“For their heart was not right with Him, neither were they stedfast in His covenant. But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned His anger away, and didn’t stir up all His wrath” (Psalm 78:37-38).
One of the things that is amazing about the Word of God is the vivid and accurate record of the heart condition of people. The best of authors can paint a picture of emotion and drama with their words in describing characters in their best sellers. But the Word of God is so different. The Author, the LORD Himself, actually looks at the heart’s condition.
The Word is honest in describing our condition. Where would we ever be if it were not for the Lord’s compassion and forgiveness? Wherever you are and whatever you are facing, He invites you to undergo “His Awesome Change of Heart Procedure” by asking Him to be your Savior and then walking with Him.
For today: As the chorus goes, “Change my heart, O God, make it ever new!”
