Devotional Monday: Heart

 I was reading a devotional today and it mentioned the verse below in it. As I read it, it definitely tugged at my heart. This verse reminded me that when we give God our heart he removes the heart of stone and gives us a heart that is shaped by him and called to follow his ways. God is the potter of our heart, every day he is shaping it to be more like his. Isaiah 64:8 says, "Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand." Just as the verse says, we are all the work of his hand and even through our struggles God is continually shaping us into the godly people that he longs for us to be. He takes that lump of clay and shapes it into something beautiful and reminds us that we are precious in his sight. so i encourage you to let  God mold your heart into one that is more like his. God is the potter, and we are the clay--rest in this truth as you go throughout your week and let God mold you into the godly person that he wants you to be.
Ezekiel 11:19-20
"And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God."
