Day 1 Giving God Possession of Our Hearts
Jeremiah 17:9 “the heart is deceitful above all things.”
The cry of our culture has been “follow your heart.” Our hearts have led us astray; they have led us by emotion, by desire, by want and by the moment. Today we pray to become leaders of our hearts rather than followers. Proverbs 27:19 says “Guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life.” Today we give Jesus possession of our hearts, we do not invite Him in but rather we give Him control, ownership and authority to override, overtake and overrule every fleshly and self-seeking desire of our hearts.
We fast and pray today that Ezekiel 36:26 would be accomplished in our lives: “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
