2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
This morning as I was praying it hit me that this verse says, “if MY people, who are called by MY name” will humbly repent and turn back to Me…..
It is not the whole of our society or the wicked that need to stop refusing God in order for America to be healed.
It is God’s own people who claim to follow and know Jesus that have some changes to make. And it is OK that even all of “those” people do not see where they are wrong and need to turn around and seek God with all of their hearts…
…because all through the Word of God it is obvious that God uses one or two and even a few to do that which He has purposed to do. God always has a remnant for Himself. God always has a plan in place and He always warns His servants before catastrophe takes place. He, as a loving Father, warns His people over and over and tells them of the remedy before they go too far off on their own way. He tells them that He will supernaturally intervene on their behalf if they will just turn and ask Him to do so.
I am quite comforted by this because I have been looking for judgment to fall on America for a while, now. But I also have been seeing how God is bringing many injustices and evils into the light so that His people can see and know the truth and choose what is right. I am seeing many of His people proclaiming truth in love and I am seeing many people persevere in love even though evil has been becoming more prevalent in the news. I believe that God is bringing about an awakening and that there is going to be a huge harvest. I believe that God is sending laborers into the fields which are ripe for harvest. There is a lot that is going on brothers and sisters that we cannot see as of just yet. But hold on also to this truth: Isaiah 43:18 “Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
It doesn’t take the whole nation to repent and turn to God and seek His face for America to be healed. It only takes His people what are called by His name, and the remnant of those that He has saved for Himself. Have faith and walk by faith and walk filled by His Spirit….. We have a Living Hope!
