This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Ezekiel 11:19 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about how God will change a man’s heart just for you.
Recently, I’ve been talking about taking action and the way we should respond if God calls us to action. So, this week, I decided to reflect on all of the ways God will move others on your behalf.
I had this thought as I was reading about the time when Paul and Silas were out and about spreading the good news. Then, suddenly, they were beaten, arrested, and jailed. To ensure they couldn’t escape from the prison, the jailer even put them in the inner dungeon of the jail.
However, shortly after midnight, there was a great earthquake, and the prison was shaken at its foundation. All of the doors flew open, and the chains flew off all of the prisoners.
The jailer was deeply shaken by the whole incident. He ran down to the dungeon where Paul and Silas were being kept, then knelt before them and asked what he needed to do to be saved. So, Paul told him to believe in the Lord Jesus because not only would he be saved, but his entire family would be saved, too.
Here’s what’s interesting. The jailer who had thrown Paul and Silas into the inner dungeon earlier that day came to wash their wounds later that night. In this incident, we see how God can change a man’s heart.
Therefore, let us not shy away from an assignment because we know we have to deal with a hard heart. Instead, put those hearts in God’s hands and cling to these words: “I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 11:19 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, know that God changes hearts.
