day 12


I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the Lord; & they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart. There is truly nothing like knowing the presence of God, & enjoying the presence of God.

It’s an amazing thing to understand that God has provided everything for us. There is nothing about our lives that isn’t about God, by God, from God, or for God. 


Powerful in every way, He created the entire universe in 6 days, and had enough time to rest on the seventh.

When Israel was held captive in Egypt, it was God who engaged, equipped and empowered Moses to free them. It was also God who provided the miracles that would ultimately cause Pharoah to release them, setting them free. It’s God who creates and it’s God who sets us free. When Adam fell in the Garden, breaking everything and cast all of humankind into the knowledge of sin, it was God that provided the sacrifice. He sent Jesus to pay the price we should have paid in order to restore us and redeem us. God enabled the three most definitive, life-changing, and world altering words declared from the cross, when Jesus said, “It is finished.” 


Ephesians 2 tells us that we are saved by the grace of God, THROUGH faith.

Romans 12:3 tells us that each person is given a measure of faith from God.

Not only does God give us His undeserved grace, which is the only way we are saved, but, He also provides the faith needed to access His grace.

It’s GOD who does EVERYTHING. 


In Jeremiah 24:7 above, we see God once again is taking care of doing everything for us. The end of this verse lets us know that He wants us as His people, and He wants to be our God, and the only way that will happen is when we come to Him with our entire heart.

He starts this verse off with the key: “I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord.”  


We must come to Him with the fullness of our heart, realizing the merciful gift in that He is the One that gives us the heart to come to Him in the first place.


No matter where we find ourselves on this day...

No matter what we may have done in the past 24 hours, 24 days, or even 24 years (or more)...

No matter how far we may think we are from God...

God has declared over us through scripture, and God is declaring over us right now, that He has given us a heart to know Him. With all that God has done, is doing, and has prepared for us (will do), what can we do but offer Him our hearts? In comparison to the greatness of God, we don’t have much … there’s truly nothing we could do, or can do. But here’s the beauty of grace … all He’s really after — is our heart.

“There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man, which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.”

- Blaise Pascal
