Jeremiah 24:7 I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.
Israel at that time was in captivity in Babylon due to transgressions,sin, rebellion and idolatry against the Lord their God and He now makes a promise through the Prophet Jeremiah to restore them back to Him in giving them a brand new start in getting it right with Him by means of a new heart that He will put in them.
Has rebellion and willful sin separated you from God? Well, the same God of Israel is making this offer to ALL of us on today who could only believe by faith that through Christ Jesus, restoration with God is available to them too.
Today, a new heart is being offered by God to all. Yes, the Lord God, our everlasting covenant keeping Father who is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abundant in goodness and truth promises to pardon transgression and the sins of His people by means of a new heart that He will put in them.
Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
This new heart that God promises will give us the desire to know God and the assurance of not only knowing that the Lord He is God but also the privilege of being called the children of God who have returned to the Lord God with their whole heart.
This new heart affords us the opportunity for genuine fellowship and communion with the Lord our God with the assurance that He is our God and we are His people and that we can boldly come to Him in prayer for He promises to hear and answer His people.
People of God, the Lord our God is faithful and true to His every promises and is able and willing to perform them all according to His will concerning us through Christ Jesus.
