We are in awe of magnificent structures. Those who design and build such edifices are honored and lauded above all others. We look to men and women for something to praise. All of this is nothing new. From creation, people idolize people. We are so desperate to find icons among outstanding people that we fail to honor the “Author and Finisher of our Faith”. GOD, alone, is worthy of Praise, yet that has never been the case. We aren’t alone in our ignorance. Even when our LORD was walking this earth healing and loving, those closest to HIM, were doubters most of the time. They felt that JESUS CHRIST should have done more to make their lives less filled with difficulty. We are too much into “Selfies” to see what GOD has provided and just how much HE loves us. In Chronicles, HE says we must do some things that will guarantee HIS Blessings. First, we must accept the Gift of Salvation by BELIEVING in JESUS. Second, We must Humble ourselves and Pray. Finally, we must SEEK HIS FACE and Turn from our wicked ways.(none of which is easy, but it must be possible or HE wouldn’t require it) So, before we fall into the deep, black hole of depression and disappointment, do ourselves a favor by calling upon the ONE GOD who created everything and is able and willing to Heal our Land. That’s what I get from my Box of Chocolates, donchaknow.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
“14 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.”
AMEN and AMEN
