"HEART TRANSPLANT SURGERY"
Ezekiel 11: 19-20-21
19 I will give them a new heart and a new mind. I will take away their stubborn heart of stone and will give them an obedient heart. 20 Then they will keep my laws and faithfully obey all my commands. They will be my people, and I will be their God. 21 But I will punish the people who love to worship filthy, disgusting idols. I will punish them for what they have done.” The Sovereign Lord has spoken.
PRAYER: Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before you acknowledging that I need a heart transplant surgery. I give you my heart so that the Holy Spirit may guide me. I surrender all that hinders my walk with you.
GENERAL OBJECTIVE: For all of God’s children to check and align their hearts with the word of God, through the healing and liberation that the Word of God brings.
In His mercy, God gives us the opportunity to hope for a new heart. This is the time when God will use a scalpel on our hearts with the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit. If you are willing, He is ready to do an individual work of TRANSFORMATION.
There are hearts that are wounded, proud, foolish, deceitful, rebellious, wicked, evil, callous, malicious, hardened, deceived, betrayed, inveterate, lost, dedicated to idols, full of plans to do evil, lacking repentance and far from God.
There are many reasons for a heart to harden, for example, Pharaoh's heart in Egypt hardened in Exodus 4:21
THE HEART IS A SPRING OF LIFE.
Proverbs 4:23 (CEV)
Carefully guard your thoughts because they are the source of true life.
The mind and heart are united. God longs for his children to have a heart that believes in his word; believing gives power to the mouth, this is how we become freed from a wounded heart. A wounded heart becomes bitter and that bitterness becomes a seedbed for the devil.
A wound that has been healed becomes a bond, and that bondage becomes an influence of the devil.
You have the power to free yourself today and receive healing and life.
Luke 6:45 (GNT)
45 The good man says good things because good is in his heart, and the bad man says bad things because evil is in his heart. For what abounds in his heart speaks his mouth.
This is the day when the power of God and the Holy Spirit heals you. You are the one to remove from your heart everything that is hurting and allow God to put a new heart and spirit. What for? So you can live.
Ezekiel 11:20 (GNT)
20 Then they will keep my laws and faithfully obey all my commands. They will be my people, and I will be their God. Wonderful opportunity!
THE KEY TO HAVING AND MAINTAINING A NEW HEART AND A NEW SPIRIT.
Proverbs 4: 20-27 (GNT)
20 Listen to my words, my son; pay attention to them. 21 Never lose sight of them, engrave them in your mind! 22 They give life and health to everyone who finds them. 23 Take care of your mind more than anything in the world, because it is the source of life. 24 Avoid saying false things; get away from the lie. 25 Always look ahead, always look straight ahead. Take a good look at where you put your feet, and you'll always be on firm ground. 27 Do not stray from your path; avoid walking in bad steps.
1) Pay attention to the word of God.
2) Never lose sight of His word.
3) Engrave the word in the mind, and learn to renew the mind.
4) The word gives you life and makes you sensitive.
5) Take care of your words, do not to speak lies.
6) Stay focused, look forward.
7) Look closely where you walk.
8) All this will bring security and firmness on your way (Jesus is the Way)
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23
God is not pleased with those who do no stop these practices. The day will come when God will ask for an account of their behavior.
Ezekiel 11:21 (GNT)
21 But I will punish the people who love to worship filthy, disgusting idols. I will punish them for what they have done.” The Sovereign Lord has spoken.
What are those disagreeable and detestable practices?
Proverbs 16: 5
Romans 1: 26-31
God will ask us to render accounts for our behavior.
Our calling is to keep our heart healthy and free; where Jesus is the only one who governs our life.
Matthew 22: 37-40 GNT
37 Jesus said to him: - "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind." 38 This is the most important and the first of the commandments. 39 But there is a second, similar to this; says, "Love your neighbor as yourself." 40 On these two commandments all the law and the prophets are based.
It is my hope that today you can be free and that Jesus Christ reign in your heart.
