If My People
If my people, which 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.
2 Chronicles 7:14
We individually sin against God, and sometimes, unfortunately, turn our backs on God. However, if we are not careful, our sin can hinder God from speaking to us and hearing us (Psalm 66:18). We must not let sin build up in our lives as our relationship with God can be affected by unconfessed sin (1 John 1:9). In this verse, God promises that if we humble ourselves, repent, and confess our sins, He will forgive us and heal our lives. We have to humble ourselves and acknowledge that we have done wrong, and take responsibility for our actions before God can continue doing a great work in our lives. Our homes, families, nation, and the world need healing and forgiveness, but we first need to humble ourselves and repent. Yes, our country needs healing, but also, we as Christians need healing, forgiveness, and God's presence in our lives. God will never forsake us, but He will sometimes let us feel alone when there is unconfessed sin so that we will realize that we need Him. It is up to us if we want God's forgiveness and presence, and then we must take action to amend the relationship with Him. If we as God's people follow this verse, God can begin to do a great and mighty work in our lives, our families, and our nation. It all starts with you!
