2 Chronicles 7:14

II Chronicles 7

Most born again believers in Jesus do know 2 Chronicles 7:14 or have heard this verse quoted before, especially lately, in America. It was brought to my attention yesterday and on my mind again this morning, that we who are called by the Lord’s name are the ones who are to humble ourselves…. It seems like we hear a lot about how other people should humble themselves. Or, we hear a lot about how hateful and arrogant other people are for their unbelief. But, what about the criticisms that we as the Lord’s people have of others and each other?

It is going to take each individual born again believer to come to terms with the concept and principle that the Lord presents to us in this verse. No matter what all is wrong with everyone else in the world, each of us has  the responsibility to answer to God for our own self, first. After we get our own hearts right with our Lord and examine our own ways and allow Him to transform us from the inside – out, then we can move on to being who He created us to be in this world. We are to be salt and light and we cannot do that if we are pointing our fingers at everyone else. Instead of complaining and grumbling about what is wrong in the world around us and being discouraged by our own failures, we should humbly come before the Lord and confess our need of Him. We should pray and seek His face and turn from following our own ways. We should be thankful and praise Him for all of the work that He has already done for us, in us and through us. Most of all, we should thank Him for Jesus, who paid the price for our lives, souls, salvation, healing and victory in this world and in the next.

Something to think about for us, today. We know the words of 2 Chronicles 7:14, but do we take it to heart for our own selves? When we do, we will see the kingdom of God manifesting all around us 🙂 God bless you!

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
