The prophet Ezekiel made a remarkable promise regarding the transforming love of God, “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.”Regardless of how troubled your marriage may have been up to now, God can take your heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh in your relationship.
It begins with trusting the heart of God, who has revealed himself in Jesus Christ and Christ’s finished work on the Cross. There, bearing our sins, Jesus opened a source of love that can literally transform our lives. If your heart is stone cold, ask God to do a heart transplant — to replace it with one soft and tender toward your spouse once again.
Remember, marriage is for better, for worse, and for keeps.
“I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 11:19
