“Don’t be stiff-necked now, as your ancestors were. Instead, yield yourselves to Adonai; enter His sanctuary, which He has made holy forever; and serve Adonai your God; so that His fierce anger will turn away from you.”
2 Chronicles 30:8 CJB
This is some direct language here. In other words, don’t be stubborn or hard—headed toward the things of God! Instead give into the glory of God and don’t be ordinary like the world, but instead be holy (set apart and special) like Adonai intends us to be!
“Therefore, circumcise the foreskin of your heart; and don’t be stiff-necked any longer!”
Deuteronomy 10:16 CJB
We need to see that most things in life turn out to be a heart issue! We hold grudges, we have unchangeable opinions or just have a hard heart! We really need to just drop things that drag us down and seek God and His will in every situation!
“Desist, and learn that I am God, supreme over the nations, supreme over the earth.”
Psalm 46:10 CJB
The Hebrew word here for be still or desist is Rafah, which simply means DROP IT, let it go and don’t try to pick it back up! In other words, drop it and let God take over!
Today, instead of being hard hearted or stiff-necked, be holy and yield yourself over to Adonai!
Have a blessed day being special for God!
