Heart Surgery

UV 1666/10000 Heart Surgery

A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Ezekiel 36 v 26

The adamantine heart or the proud, stubborn and rebellious heart is replaced in us by a humble, faithful and obedient heart. The word “ Adam” is the root of the word “adamantine”. The moment Adam disbelieved God’s Word, believed Eve and the evil one’s words, his spiritual heart died and it was replaced by a disbelieving and dead heart. The spirit of God fled from that adamantine heart. When we believe the Word that the Father sent to redeem us, the adamantine heart is transplanted with a Jesus-like heart that beats or resonates with the Father’s heart.

The Lord does heart surgery on each of us. He replaces our hardened hearts that are insensitive to Him and the move of the Spirit of God in us. He replaces our hearts of stone with a heart of flesh. His Spirit, the Holy Spirit begins to dwell in our hearts the moment we set our faith upon Jesus. The Spirit releases His gifts in our hearts to serve the Lord. Our hearts take root in the Spirit and begin to grow and overflow with new life. Our hearts will shoot forth new branches that bear many kinds of spiritual fruit.
The Lord does a circumcision of our hearts. It implies that He cuts around our spiritual hearts so that the stony membrane of the love of the world is replaced by the membrane of the love of God. We will learn to love the Lord with all our heart, soul and strength. He renews the right spirit within us even as He casts out the wrong ones. Old things, priorities and perspectives will pass away and new heart attitudes, priorities and perspectives will develop. He will increase us from one level of greatness to another for His glory. He will write His Word in fleshy tablets of our hearts that will cause us to walk in His ways. From our new hearts will flow the new and abundant life: peace, joy, grace, mercy, kindness, faith, hope, love. Our spiritual hearts is like a pump that continually pipes in strength, wisdom, faith, hope, love and joy to all parts of our lives.
Prateep V Philip
