unmatched hearts

Deuteronomy 10:13 Watch Yahveh’s commands and prescriptions I am giving you today, for your own good.

Deuteronomy 10:14 Notice the skies, indeed the highest sky, belong to Yahveh your God, as does the land and everything in it.

Deuteronomy 10:15 Yet Yahveh had his heart set on your fathers and cared about them. He chose their descendants after them– he chose you out of all the peoples, as it is today.

Deuteronomy 10:16 Therefore, circumcise your hearts and don’t be stiff-necked any longer.

unmatched hearts

God’s heart was set on the Israelites, but they had uncircumcised hearts. The condition had a side effect on their necks as well. They stubbornly refused to return God’s affection and devotion.

We all know the emotional pain and stress that unmatched hearts can produce. What we need to come to grips with is that God has already declared his care for us by sending his only Son to die a sacrificial death on our behalf. Will we match our hearts with his?

Lord, we acknowledge your care for us. Help us to bend our stubborn hearts to match your passion.
