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!

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!
