We continue to be reminded in Gods word, His absolute truth how to restore our land:
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
How many of us can truly say we are humbling ourselves, praying and seeking His face, turning from our wicked ways...
Let's all rally together and pray without ceasing that as a nation and as individuals we turn to God and what our great country is founded on.
DID YOU KNOW THAT OF THE 56 Men who signed the Declaration of Independence that almost half held seminary or Bible School Degrees???
John Hagee who is an amazing Godly Pastor shares the following :
If America is being destroyed from the inside out, we cannot expect change to come from the outside in. No political party, candidate, or program will save the day.
The only thing that can make a difference is the life-changing power of Jesus Christ in the heart of every individual. God is waiting for us to fall on our knees, to humble ourselves, to turn from our wicked ways, and cry out to Him to heal this country.
The time for dressing up and playing church is over. May the church of the Living God rise up to shine a light in this nation until the darkness is dispelled!
With every sunrise, His mercies to us are renewed. Where our sin abounded, His grace abounded more. The goodness and mercy of God will follow us all the days of our lives. He will faithfully complete the good work that He began in us.
We have a choice to make about the Truth that we know. We have a responsibility to that Truth – to speak it out and act on its principles. It will change us – and our nation – from the inside out!
When we examine this scripture in detail here is what was happening:
In the chapter just before, 2 Chronicles 6, Solomon asked the Lord for His mercy and forgiveness in the times that the people would sin. He knew, as we do today, that none of us are perfect and without sin in our lives. And God answered with these words and provisions that are relevant for believers still today:
Humble yourselves by confessing any sin.
Pray to God and ask for His forgiveness.
Seek God’s face continually.
Turn from the wrong behavior.
In response, God promised:
“I will hear from heaven.”
“I will forgive their sin.”
“I will heal their land.”
True repentance will always be recognized by changed behavior. It’s more than just “talking the talk.” It’s “walking the walk.” And it requires action on our part according to God’s word. Only on the heels of true humility and repentance before Him, can we come before the Lord, with prayerful hearts, truly seeking His face, filled with the Spirit’s power to turn away from wrong choices.
God is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. And the way He responded to the cries of His people during Solomon’s days, is still the way He is faithful to respond to our cries for help. He does hear our prayers from heaven. He is faithful to forgive us when we come before Him and confess our sin, admit our great need for Him, and turn from wrong. He promises to heal our land.
His whole character, who He is—Redeemer, Restorer, Healer, Rescuer—is a constant reminder to us that He will do what He says He will do. We don’t have to worry. We don’t have to fear. We don’t have to wrestle through all on our own.
The very God who made us and set us free from sin and defeat is the very God who will miraculously heal our land. Our “land” in our personal lives. Our “land” in our families. Our “land” in our communities. Our “land” in America. And wherever else our “land” may be in this world. His power is limitless and reigns over all.
God hears our prayers, He knows our needs. And there’s great power in uniting together, turning our hearts towards Him, and praying on behalf of our nation and world.
THIS IS OUR CALL TO ACTION...ALL OF US... ON OUR KNEES... ON OUR FACES...
We must unite together and speak the truth in LOVE!!!!
I will be covering the fruits of the spirit one at a time starting Monday.... I need a spirit check and figured I'd share what I need...
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you humble yourself to seek the Lord on behalf of our great country. May We hear from heaven and heal our land. Amen and amen.
