“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the LORD. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people”. – Jeremiah 31.33
Jeremiah noted the heart of stone would become a heart of flesh. This is a metaphor 1 of being reborn via the Spirit writing the Royal law on our hearts, thus radically changing it to love the Spirit-led way. Christ offered this to all at the cross, as his sacrifice instituted the New Covenant in his blood. (Jeremiah 31:33, Romans 8:14; Galatians 5:18, 22-25; Matt 26:28, Luke 22:20, 1 Corinthians 11:25, Hebrews 12:24)
If one then cannot find joy, peace and righteousness in each of the conjoined body, mind, and spirit that you were born with, there will be angst, an indication that one is giving way to darkness and disobedience is being potentiated. These are the warnings of the Holy Spirit: restlessness, joylessness, lack of confidence, confusion and zero peace. (Romans 14:17; Isaiah 48:22)
To achieve this confidence and freedom in Christ, call unto him for help to overcome any sin or obstacle hindering your walk with him. He is the author of your salvation and he will and he desires to help you. (Philippians 1:6; Revelation 3:20; Psalm 51:10)
Waste no time to submit to the Lord, call on Him to block the portals you’ve opened to Satan, wake up and stand guard over your soul. Obedience demands discipline of your entire being. Stand free in Christ, empowered by his indwelling abiding Spirit. May joy and peace be yours as you stand guard over your soul and your fellow believers. May God help you to never surrender to the dark side! (Luke 11:36; Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 9:15, 8:13; Ezekiel 11:19, 36:26; 2 Corinthians 1:12, 3:3; Acts 2:26)
1 A heart of stone pictures selfish uncaring, unkind arrogance. A heart of flesh pictures a heart with the capacity to be loving and free in joyful unity with others via the Spirit activating God’s guidance when the heart submits to Christ, born anew in the Spirit.
