If We

Ferguson. Iraq. Israel. Have mercy.

We watch the news and quickly turn it off.  In the midst of bills and careers and family issues we rush on with our day. It doesn’t affect my life.  It’s a living nightmare for “those people” but I’ve got enough stress, enough heartache, I can’t handle to even watch this.

“Our world is sick!” you shout and go along with your day.

Sigh!

I have amazing; thrilling news ~ God does in fact have an answer! And yes, in your cubicle at the office in your middle of nowhere town, in the midst of the craziness of life, you and I can do truly do something.

God Says…

“When my people (that’s us) humble themselves—the ones who are called by my name (that’s you) pray, seek me, and turn away from their evil ways, I myself will listen/hear from heaven, I will pardon/forgive their sins, and I will HEAL/restore their land.” II Chronicles 7:14 

Did you hear the best part?  HEAL their LAND… HEAL their LAND; those words give me the same feeling from my head to my toes like the word VACATION or CHRISTMAS.

This land is in THE ER!  We need healing, call in the surgeons, the doctors, do we have a Pastor?  We need the HEALER!

We need healing from the top of the world to the bottom of the world and all the way around the world and God promises to send HEALING like a flood…if we would  JUST do our part. What if we picked a country or a city or a town or village and prayed?  If we spoke the Living Word and the mighty name of JESUS over that territory and truly “lived out” the Word.

What if with the same ice bucket challenge zeal we declared on social media became “I’m John and I take the prayer challenge from God.  I’m praying for _____ and I challenge _____.  You have 24 hours.”  What if we CALLED and GOD answered?  WHAT if it’s really true and HE in fact would bring HEALING to a SICK world if we just simply asked?

So we have our “To Do” list, right? We have our marching orders from heaven!

*Humble ourselves

*Pray

*Seek God

*Turn from Sin

THAT’S OUR PART.

 

HIS PART…

*Hear

* Forgive Us

*Heal Us

The thoughts come immediately;

Do my prayers matter?

I have issues!

I have thoughts far from God thoughts.

I’m not…

Do You know what I’ve done Lord?

Just stick to the promise,

If we … He will…

If we… He will…

If we… He will.

God’s Promise…

“If My people, who 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.”  II Chronicles 7:14
