2 Chronicles 7:14- if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
In this text, God sets forth the conditions upon which our land can be healed. Our nation can not be healed by human hands, we need God's divine intervention.
America, apart from God, we can do nothing!
God says "if my people". Who are God's people? Those Christians who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Those who have accepted God's atoning work at Calvary Cross by faith. Those who have been redeemed by the shed blood of Christ, these are God’s people.
The first condition calls for humility. We are to humble ourselves under the mighty hands of God. We are then commanded to seek the face of God through prayer. God bids us to come to Him for he says in Hebrews 4:16-Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Once we have humbled ourselves under the mighty hands of God, once we have seek His face through prayer and His Word then we must turn from our wicked ways.
I must admit that evil has become common place in our nation because the hearts of many have waxed cold. The conscience of many have been seared and the sense of right and wrong seems to have reversed in our nation where wrong is right and right is wrong.
Truly we are living in times where the bible describes as the days of Noah. A time where every man was living according to what is right in his own eyes.
When we have met the conditions of humbling ourselves, seeking God's face through prayer and His Word and turning away form evil, God promises that He will hear from heaven and will heal our land.
Our land needs healing! The world needs healing.
It is time for us as believers to come on one accord in agreement on daily prayer of intercession for our nations. God promises us as His people, that if we do just that, He will heal our land.
The good news on today is that God has given us the conditions upon which our land can be healed.
Saints, what are you going to do with them? God has already done what He said He is gonna do, the rest is up to us.
1 John 1:9-If we confess our sins to God, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
"I will heal the land"! That is a promise from God to us on today.
