"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
IN JESUS TODAY!
What's the problem with our world? What's the problem with our country? What's the problem with us individually? In the sight of the Lord, and in the sight of all when we desire healing, we point the finger at who we think the problem is! If we should desire healing for our land, and for our lives we must look at the beginning of our relationship with God, as a child, humble, and having an open heart to his truth about us, not thinking more highly of ourselves, we must be willing to return to our first love! Our world, our country, and our hearts need to surrender to God and remember he is what makes us great, as we read, "humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up." James 4:10 Do we desire to return to greatness? He shall lift us up! Do we desire to be whole again? He shall lift us up! Healing comes when we seek God's help, when we admit that we need him, and turn to him once again as our Lord and Savior! Herein, God gives us the ultimate "How To" regarding healing. His "How To" starts with God's address to his own people, so get this, God is addressing Christians here! " which are called by my name" Christians, as in, Christ's children! Why is it important to say this? Because it places God's finger on us, not anyone else, and our own finger is pointed at us, and not anyone else!
We have been set apart in a world of people that serves many gods, we serve Jesus only! But do his people pray? In the world, there is humble people, but are his people humble? You see God wants to talk directly to you and me and his own! If his own, you and me, will humble themselves, if his own, you and me, will pray, if his own, you and me, will seek him, if his own, you and me, will turn from their wicked ways! "Then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land!"
