It is clear; It is concise… 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who 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.”
“IF” is perhaps the biggest word in the passage… IF God’s people, the church, will do FOUR things.
Look carefully… God requires FOUR things from His people:
3.Seek My face.
4.Turn from their wicked ways.
And IF God’s people will do these four things, THEN and only then will God do these three things:
1.Hear from Heaven.
2.Forgive their sin.
3.Heal their land.
Oh God… how desparately our land needs to be healed! And how ignorant and apethetic we are as your people to understand and apply these four directives.
Just as assurance of Salvation, the solution to “Things are in a mess and we can’t continue, but what can ‘WE” do? , then the process, then the solution. This formula works, but there is one key truth: GOD is speaking to HIS people, not to the whole of our nation. HIS people have JESUS. HIM first and then the mystery is solved. It ,will not be easy but it is the first step. And that’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates. Amen and AMEN!
