If MY People

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!

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.
