Healing For Our Land Starts With the Church, our land, our country needs healing for it to begin it must start with the Church, it must start with us who are the body of believers. 2 Chronicles 7:14 is a very powerful trumpet call for God’s people who are called by his name, to humble ourselves, pray, seek God, and turn from our wicked ways, this verse of scripture is a call for believers to return to their first love and repent.
Our land is moving in a direction away from God, our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and beliefs. We must once again embrace our first love and turn from our ways to his ways forgoing man’s traditions. Removing the idols that stand in our way of spending more time with Jesus.
Our Hearts Need To Be Revived
We need a revival for our hearts to beat for our first love once again, not for a show, not for a march or a special day, God’s word says “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.” Matthew 6:6 KJV
Once we put our pride to the side and begin the humble instruction in God’s word, He will hear from heaven and forgive our sin, and will heal our land.
“And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.” Matthew 23:12 KJV
God’s Ways, Thoughts, And Plans
God’s ways, thoughts, and plans are so much greater than our ways, thoughts, and plans. “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not evil, to give you an expected end.” Jerimiah 29:11 KJV
God has a way of getting our attention, if we don’t listen to his word and do what it says, instead deciding to follow our own path with our ways and thoughts, then God will correct his children.
“And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings:” Daniel 2:21 KJV
“Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.” Romans 13:1 NLT
After this past election, I have seen a lot of brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus who have fallen into the pit of pride with their ways, their thoughts, and not accepting God’s plan. Are we to hold grudges against others, are we to be boastful, are we to run to strife and continue to put ridicule on social media? This is not God’s way.
I write this because I was convicted! We are to share God’s Love, we are to be the peacemakers, Faith, Hope, and Love and the greatest of these is love. God’s love conquers hate.
God does not make mistakes he knows what he is doing.
Let God’s Plan Play Out
We may not see what his plans are in the beginning, but when they come to fruition they are glorious. Let us remember when Jesus died on the cross of Calvary for our sins and was laid in the tomb the devil thought he had won, on the third day when our Lord and Saviour Jesus had risen, he knew he had lost.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV
Seek The Lord
(6) Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:(7) Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (8) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. (9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55: 6-9 KJV
As God’s children, we have tasted of God’s grace we have been delivered and sanctified by the atoning blood of Jesus. We are to strive to be like our Lord. For our country to heal:
14 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 KJV
