GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES

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. (2Ch 7:14)

That’s a tall order, isn’t it.

A specific group of people—you and me—need to humble themselves. We need to find a way out of the deception of humanism which puts us at the forefront of our own universe.

We need to recognize the difference between the human potential movement and a genuine move of God.

God requires that these people learn what it means to serve, to take the low place, to not think of ourselves more highly than we ought (Rom. 12:3).

We need to cry out to God, confessing the sin of America as if we are the only ones guilty.

We need to find every vestige of sin within our own heart, confess and forsake it (Pro. 28:13), and turn completely—body, soul and spirit—to the Lord.

It is not as simple as putting 2 Chronicles 7:14 on our Facebook page, or on a poster at school. There’s probably nothing wrong with doing that. It’s just not effective for seeing the promise fulfilled.

When the Lord finds a people who will make this their priority, who will let nothing stand in their way of doing the IF part of the verse, then He will do exceedingly, abundantly above whatever we might imagine a healing of our nation to be. (Eph. 3:20)


Will we see this promise fulfilled in our lifetime?
