‘If My people…’ 2 Chronicles 7:14
Not so long ago we were all celebrating a great economy. Wow, can’t times change? Skyrocketing fuel prices have us carpooling, parking our petrol-guzzlers and taking the bus. We’d never heard of a ‘sub-prime mortgage crisis;’ now the equity in some of our homes is evaporating like steam, or they’re being auctioned off after re-possession. The headlines say a tsunami hits Burma and 100,000 people die. Earthquakes hit China and thousands of children perish in the rubble of their school. Floods hit the Midlands and other regions of the UK.. It seems our security blanket has been stripped away and our comfort zone shaken to its core. But there’s a groundswell. If you listen you’ll hear it: ‘It’s time to seek God, to repent, to change the way we’re living.’ It’s an old message for a new generation. ‘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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.’ You say, ‘The people around me aren’t saying that.’ Then examine the company you’re keeping! Jesus said that when the blind lead the blind they both end up in a ditch. We don’t need a majority to turn things around. God told Abraham that just fifty people with a heart for righteousness could save Sodom. Even in a pampered church that majors in ‘what God will do for you, and how to get Him to do it’ there’s a remnant who know what revival means, and how to seek God until it comes. The question is, will you be one of them?
I will be one of such people…I choose to be
till enext time,
easy does it 🙂
