REPOST FROM AUGUST 30, 2015
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 for the conditions upon which our land can be healed.
Our nation can not be healed by human hands, we need God's divine intervention. In John1 5:5b-Jesus told the disciples, apart from me you can do nothing.
America, apart from God, we can do nothing!
What God is requiring of us today is nothing new. 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, those who have been saved from harm and danger. Those who are set apart, anointed and called to God's service in His Kingdom.
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 and His Word.
Once we have humbled ourselves under the mighty hands of God, once we have seeked His face through prayer, 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 hearts have waxed cold. The conscience of many have been seared and the sense of right and wrong is of no effect to them anymore.
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.
Our land needs healing! The world needs healing.
People of god are you wiling to get in prayer on behalf of your nation and nations around the world ?
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.
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.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for His mercy is new every morning. It is because of His mercy and compassion that we are not consumed.
