The LORD your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live. Deut. 30:6

What does a circumcised heart look like before the Lord? Literally, circumcision means cutting away of the flesh. Spiritually, it cutting away, getting rid of the sinful nature. When we have not allowed God to enter in and deal with some of our fleshly, human ways; thoughts, bitterness, anger, jealousy, gossip, slander, immorality, a hardened heart...these are all examples of things that God wants to deal with, to cut away and remove from us. We are a new creation in HIM...the old is gone and HE has a new heart for us! (2 Cor. 5:17

I want to daily ask the Holy Spirit to enter my heart and take the sword of the Spirit to remove the unwanted nature of your flesh, that I may enter into a more intimate relationship with God.
