“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” Ezekiel 36:26, Berean Study Bible.
After the cardiologist ran several tests to discover the root cause of my chest pains, we sat down, and the doctor looked at me and said, “You have a beautiful heart.”
Man. I needed to hear that because the devil was using people close to me to make me feel like crap. Their misjudgments of me and who I am was affecting me so much so that my chest was hurting. The Bible calls the devil the accuser of the brethren, and some people are doing his dirty work. They will tell you that you don’t have a beautiful heart, that you’re not who God says you are.
Maybe it was something you said or did or something that was said or done to you. But my sister, I need you to come close and listen to me. The devil is a liar. I need you to be strong and stand up and say, “Shut up, devil! I rebuke you! I am who God says I am! Because of Jesus, I have a beautiful heart! Because of Jesus, I am a beautiful person! Because of Jesus, my future is beautiful and bright!
God weeded those people out of my life who were causing stress on my mind and stress on my body, and now I am able to run my race and fulfill God’s purpose and plan with no pain and a whole lot of joy! He will do the same for you, my love. You have a beautiful, beautiful heart!
Prayer: Father, I thank you that no matter what the devil says, I have a beautiful heart, I am a beautiful person, and my future is bright. Not because of anything I’ve done, but because of Jesus. I pray that you weed out people in my life who don’t see me, don’t hear me, don’t value me, and don’t understand your purpose for my life. Place people in my life who genuinely love me and know my heart. Help me run my race fully strengthened by you. Thank you, Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
