A Heart of Flesh
In our Old Testament the flesh is often a symbol of moral weakness and infirmity. In our New Testament, the flesh is correlated with the sinful nature. However, when God talks about the heart of flesh in the book of Ezekiel, He puts it into a completely different light. “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.” Ezekiel 11:19-20
This heart of flesh stands in complete and total opposition to the heart of stone—that cold heart that could murder. This new heart of flesh will follow God’s decrees and laws—it is a soft and teachable heart, filled with love and compassion.
A New Headdress
2…proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.
What’s happening here in this little snippet of Scripture from Isaiah, is a promise coming from God, through Isaiah, that the affliction and ailments of God’s people, Israel, will be healed. The nation of Israel had suffered terribly at the hands of their enemies, and were eventually carried off into exile by the Babylonians. But God promises that the ashes of her mourning will be removed, and that she will be given a new headdress.
Hundreds of years ago, soldiers encountering Muslim armies returned to their battalions reporting that the Muslims had amazingly strong, “beautiful swords” that had “cleaved men in two.” They were harder, stronger and sharper than anything the Crusaders had ever seen. It was called “Damascus Steel.” Syrians had learned how to get their fire so hot, and their process so pure that their blades were virtually indestructible and held an edge sharper than any other. As well, the colors and patterns on these blades were beautiful pieces of artisan work. When opponents saw a Damascus sword drawn from its scabbard, they knew it was a force to be reckoned with.
Like the Syrians, our God uses the hottest fire when He’s refining us (Mal. 3:2-3). After stripping away impurities, He calls us into battle, drawing us from His holy scabbard, and we're a beautiful weapon that makes Satan and his minions tremble in reckoning.
Our weapons have Divine Strength and Power. 2 Cor 10:3-4
This is a 4-part series for any and all women, ages 16 and older that have the desire for a deeper walk with Christ and His words. When our homes and relationships come under attack we don’t have to lie down and it let it roll over us. We have the power to unleash a defense that will buckle Satan and his minions.
