They Shall Return To Me With Their Whole Heart

Topic: God Desires To Revive Us, He Always Takes The Initiative

Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.

Jeremiah 24:7 (NKJV)

Daily Reading Plan

Jeremiah 22-24

Bible Versions:

Jeremiah 24:7 (NLT) — I will give them hearts that recognize me as the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me wholeheartedly.

Jeremiah 24:7 (NIV) — I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

Jeremiah 24:7 (MSG) — “And I’ll give them a heart to know me, God. They’ll be my people and I’ll be their God, for they’ll have returned to me with all their hearts.

Devotional Thought:

God’s promise for us today, is that He will give us a heart that will know Him more and more every day. A heart that will know Him in an intimate and personal way. The Prophet Jeremiah gives us this promise, “but this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law in their minds, and write it in their hearts, and I will be their God and they shall be my people”(Jeremiah 31:33). God desires to write His laws in our minds and hearts! Today God is waiting for us to respond to His stirring in our hearts, to seek Him and draw nearer unto Him.

I wonder, are we ready to respond to God’s call to seek Him today? Once again the Lord calls us to return to His feet. His call is for all of us, but especially for those who have gone astray and do not know Him. In Isaiah 55:7, we are instructed to say, “Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly forgive”. How precious that God is so abundantly and gives plenty of room to receive His forgiveness! No need to stay in our state of coldness and indifference, it only takes for us to respond to his call.

We are called to be the people of God. We are His special people and chosen by Him for His glory to experience His presence daily. The Lord promises that if we would only seek Him, He would be ready to meet us. In Jeremiah 29:13 the Lord says, “if you will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart”. Let us pray that we may have an ear to hear the voice of the Lord in our lives this morning. May we experience a fresh visitation and powerful presence upon our lives.

Topical References:

Jeremiah 31:33 (NKJV) — But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord : I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

Deuteronomy 30:6 (NKJV) — And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

Jeremiah 29:13 (NKJV) — And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

Isaiah 55:7 (NKJV) — Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

  1. God will give us a new heart, the heart that he will give us will help us know more about God more than a lot about God. God wants us to place his law in our mind and hearts.

  2. God wants us to have a heart divided to him. God will give us one for we may love him. For we can go to him because God will take us back .

  3. God does not force anyone to do anything. Which is why we must be willing for God to work in our hearts and change our desires to want more and more of him!!!! My desire is that the lord may continue to give me more of him daily!!!
