What is in your heart?
As I read the Scripture today the Holy Spirit strikes hard and deep. I am in the book of Ezekiel.
I come across this verse first:
"As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked" God doesn't enjoy seeing people die. God doesn't want anyone to go to hell. He wants all to turn from their wicked way and follow Him. I know I need to pray that God would work in the lives of people to bring them to salvation. I need to share the gospel. I need to spread the gospel.
Another verse I read says
"And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness." As I read this I think of how that may be very true in my own life. I come before the Lord. I sit there. I say the right things. I act like I love God, but in my heart I am only thinking of myself and what I can get. I am not in love with Jesus for real. Oh God I do not want this to be true of me.
I am just grateful that God spoke to me today. I do not deserve it. I am not worthy but as I read the Word today I felt His presence. I hunger to be the man He wants me to be.
