The heart is considered to be the essence of a man.Â The fount of a personâ€™s thinking, personality and being is their heart.Â Proverbs 23:7a says: â€œFor as he thinks in his heart, so is he.â€Â We know that the heart is evil until we are given a new heart by God.
It is not difficult to have a â€œchange of heartâ€. Deuteronomy 4:29: â€œBut from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soulâ€.Â God doesnâ€™t want anyone to perish.Â He is waiting for sinners to seek Him for a new heart.
I like the way an old hymn says it: â€œSoftly and tenderly Jesus is calling, Calling for you and for me.Â See on the portals Heâ€™s waiting and watching, Watching for you and for me.Â Come home, come home, Ye who are weary, come home.Â Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling, Calling, â€˜O sinner, come homeâ€™!â€
We can have â€œstinkinâ€™ thinkinâ€™â€ in our heart.Â Psalm 14:1: The fool has said in his heart, â€˜There is no Godâ€™. They are corrupt; They have done abominable works; There is none who does good.â€
Praise God!Â He is the only One who can give a new heart!
