Midweek Morsel: The Thaw God Brings

“He spreads the snow like wool
and scatters the frost like ashes.
He hurls down his hail like pebbles.
Who can withstand his icy blast?
He sends his word and melts them;
he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.”  (Psalm 147:16-18)

Our God is able to melt an icy, frozen earth. Can he not also melt a stone cold heart?

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heartof flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

*Has God ever melted your heart on a particular issue or towards a particular person? Who can you pray for now, asking God to melt his or her heart?
