This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel
after that time, declares the Lord.
I will put My laws in their minds
and write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be My people. Hebrews 8:10
On a recent field trip to a museum featuring the days gone by, we sat in an old schoolroom as the teacher introduced us to the quill pen and bottle of ink. She cautioned us to use extreme caution using the ink and told us that if it got on our skin or clothes, it would not come off.
This reminded me of this beautiful promise from Hebrews. God told His people he would put His law in their minds and write it on their hearts. This is a covenant which cannot be broken. He loves us and wants us to know Him through His Word.
As we read more and more of His Word, it becomes written on our hearts. And…it will not come off!! It cannot be erased. His Word will guide us in times of trouble, provide grace, mercy, forgiveness, joy, peace and strength….everything that we need for anything that we will face.
What a beautiful and faithful promise to hold on to. May we have open hearts for Him to write on.
