“And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live”.
To circumcise our hearts is to put God at the centre of our joy of life. Circumcision is done with the use of a sharp object. And what else would God use to circumcise our hearts other than His words? For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart(Heb.4:12). The Lord Jesus said “Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you”, and in His prayers He said to the Father; “Sanctify them through your Truth: your word is Truth”.
Circumcision is as painful as trials. That’s why many hear the Word but does not allow it to pierce through their hearts to take off the foreskins thereof. What are those foreskins? They are the things which have taken the place for God in our lives. The will of the heart, the lust of the flesh and eyes, pride of life etc. are all foreskins that have glued our hearts such that it takes only the divine hand of God to dispel it from within us. The friendship of the world is always enmity with God.
Dolefully, we always let the Word of God remain idle in our hearts because we cherish and cleave to the foreskins so much that when the Word tries removing it, we lust after it again. But God’s promises will only come to pass when we allow the working of that promises in our lives.
Beloved, God is still holding the sword of the Word to circumcise our hearts now, won’t we gladly submit to Him?
PRAYER: I surrender my Heart unto you dear Lord Jesus. please circumcise my heart with your word, make it pure as you are, and come and have your abode there. In your name.
GOD BLESS YOU
