Write the Laws of God in Your Heart!

21 As for Me, this is My covenant or league with them, says the Lord:My Spirit, Who is upon you [and Who writes the law of God inwardly on the heart], and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouths of your [true, spiritual] children, or out of the mouths of your children’s children, says the Lord, from henceforth and forever.
(Isaiah 59:21 AMP)

10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts:and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people
(Hebrews 8:10 KJV)

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them
(Hebrews 10:16 KJV)

Psalms 119:11

11 Your word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You.

The Holy Spirit wants to write the laws of God in our hearts and minds. Why? It is what comes out of the heart that defiles a man. If your heart is filled with hatred, lust, anger, unforgiveness, then without any effort on your part, it will naturally bear evil fruit, even if you are physically trying to do good.

So God wants to change what is in our hearts. The first law He wants to write in our hearts is the law of Love! We are to love God with all our heart, soul and mind. Note that the bible goes further to explain the love of God.

3 For the [true] love of God is this:that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous
(1 John 5:3 AMP)

Obedience to God’s commandments is the Love of God.

Secondly, God wants us to love our neighbours. Not just those that do good to us but those that don’t do good to us. He wants us to love our enemies, those that despitefully use us. He doesn’t want us to condemn them, speak evil of them or hate them. He wants us to love them and shower our good will on them as well (not saying we don’t protect ourselves from them, but that we forgive and pray good things for them). He wants us to forgive anyone who offends us.

God wants us to be like HIM. He loved even those who REJECT HIM. If you have ever fallen in love with a lady or a guy only for the person to REJECT you, you most definitely feel hurt because of the REJECTION. Christ didn’t just suffer REJECTION, He was hated and crucified by the people he came to die for. Even while on the CROSS, He forgave those who hated HIM and put HIM in that PAINFUL, CRUEL, UNJUST, BONE CRUSHING, LIFE DRAINING SITUATION.

CLEANSING OUR HEARTS

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from Your presence and take not Your Holy Spirit from me
(Psalms 51:10-11 AMP)

23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers.
24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (
(John 4:23-24 AMP)

MEDITATION; THE WAY TO RENEW OUR MINDS

The cleansing of our hearts cannot happen directly, it happens through the renewal of our minds. The laws of God must penetrate our hearts through our minds. Our mind is the gateway to our hearts.

8 I delight to do Your will, O my God; yes, Your law is within my heart
(Psalms 40:8 AMP)

10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts:and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people
(Hebrews 8:10 KJV)

The LAWs are to be PUT first in our MINDs and then WRITTEN in our HEARTS by the HOLY SPIRIT.

Putting the LAWS of God in our MINDS means meditating on his LAWS day and night!

8 This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success
(Joshua 1:8 AMP)

Once the LAWS of God are written in our hearts, we effortlessly by walking in the Spirit obey the laws of God.

45 The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.
46 Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?
47 For everyone who comes to Me and listens to My words [in order to heed their teaching] and does them, I will show you what he is like:
48 He is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood arose, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake or move it, because it had been securely built or founded on a rock
(Luke 6:45-48 AMP)

EXAMPLE: LUST, FORNICATION, ADULTERY

11 For [adultery] is a heinous and chief crime, an iniquity [to demand action by] the judges and punishment.
12 For [uncontrolled passion] is a fire which consumes to Abaddon (to destruction, ruin, and the place of final torment); [that fire once lighted would rage until all is consumed] and would burn to the root all my [life’s] increase
(Job 31:11-12 AMP)

Once the LAWs concerning LUST, ADULTERY, FORNICATION are written in our hearts we gain understanding that COMMITTING THESE SINS are FOLLY!

If we gain the understand that the judgement of God comes upon the fornicators, and immoral and that engaging in these sins is basically using our own hands to destroy our lives then we will not only FLEE IT, WE WILL DREAD EVERY APPEARANCE OF SUCH EVIL.

We will SEE examples of those WHOSE lives were destroyed by this.

Practical Example: Tiger Woods was world number one golfer for 683 weeks (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_World_Number_One_male_golfers) and that changed overnight when his wife discovered he was committing adultery. All of a sudden he lost his marriage, his family, his reputation, money, etc. http://nypost.com/2013/11/24/the-night-tiger-woods-was-exposed-as-a-serial-cheater/

32 But whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks heart and understanding (moral principle and prudence); he who does it is destroying his own life.
33 Wounds and disgrace will he get, and his reproach will not be wiped away
(Proverbs 6:32-33 AMP)

4 Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God].
5 For be sure of this:that no person practicing sexual vice or impurity in thought or in life, or one who is covetous [who has lustful desire for the property of others and is greedy for gain] —for he [in effect] is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no one delude and deceive you with empty excuses and groundless arguments [for these sins], for through these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of rebellion and disobedience
(Ephesians 5:4-6 AMP)

Jesus came and explained further that adultery is not just a physical action. Lustfully looking at woman is committing adultery in our hearts. Jesus was addressing the root of the problem which is the source of the evil, what is in our hearts. He was saying adultery in the heart is sin. This reveals that porn is sin.

Matthew 5:28

28 But I say to you that everyone who so much as looks at a woman with evil desire for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

We Must Cooperate with the HOLY SPIRIT in WRITING THE LAWS OF GOD in OUR HEARTS! God cannot and will not FORCE any MAN! IT IS OUR CHOICE!

FOR THOSE WHO THINK BY MY SACRIFICES TO GOD, GOD WILL FORGIVE ME…. BEWARE! 

6 Sacrifice and offering You do not desire, nor have You delight in them; You have given me the capacity to hear and obey [Your law, a more valuable service than] burnt offerings and sin offerings [which] You do not require.
7 Then said I, Behold, I come; in the volume of the book it is written of me;
8 I delight to do Your will, O my God; yes, Your law is within my heart.
(Psalms 40:6-8 AMP)

God’s Laws Are Not Burdensome

 3 For the [true] love of God is this:that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous

(1 John 5:3 AMP)
