Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion. – Hebrews 3:7
The condition of our hearts is up to us. The battle you are in, the challenge you are facing, the person who hurt your feelings, the addiction that keeps you down, none of these things have the power to harden your heart… you choose.
We have all faced hardship and had to choose our response. God is asking you to choose to not harden your heart. His rest, that amazing peace, only comes to those with hearts that are soft to God and what He is doing. You don’t have to like the situation, you have to trust that God is doing something good and stay open to Him. When soft-hearted is our response we find rest in Him.
Pray for your heart to stay soft no matter what comes today. When challenges arise, pray and seek God instead of turn away. He’s with you.
