II Chronicles 7:14-15

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. Now mine eyes shall be open and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place (KJV).

Today’s discussion is humility and what God is asking His people to do and what He will do in return. First, God want His people to humble themselves, which is to recognize who God is and His awesome powers, as He has the power to save, destroy and or punish sin. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah and how Israel was punished with seventy years of captivity because of their sins. The same can and will occur if repentance does not take place. Second, God want His people to pray. God promised that where two or three is gathered in His name He would be in the midst. God is faithful to His promises. Also, the prayers of the righteous availeth much. Third, seek God’s face in all that we do as it should be done to His glory; then there should be a turning away from wickedness to a life of righteous living. Another thought on seeking God’s face is to align our wills with that of God. It is God’s will that His people enjoy a harmonious relationship with Him and all the blessing that He has to give.

God promised that He would hear, forgive and heal the land. What this means is that God will turn away His anger and hear the desperate cries of His people and then He will attend to those prayers. God in His compassionate way will begin to heal the land, because He would have forgiven them of their sin. In the forgiving process there will be a cleansing as sin and wickedness will be replaced with righteous living. Imagine the glorious revival there would be if some sin and wayward living as we know them today is replaced with holy living and obeying the moral standards of God.

Let’s pray, Father God, breathe on this nation, and strike down any and all unrighteousness where ever it may be. Cover our children with Your spirit as they return to school, let them be on good behavior. Touch the teachers and all who are affiliated and come in contact with our children let Your spirit rule. Then touch leaders in every position, let them lead as guided by Your spirit. Then touch the hearts and minds of every person that they may turn to You and live according to Your standards. In Jesus name Amen.

Sodom and Gomorrah

The last two weeks I have talked about faith and trust respectively, but they were written so that everyone could take a personal look at ones faith and trust, and then take a panoramic view of today society.

After taking a panoramic view of today’s society these questions came to mind, are we a Christian nation whose trust in God is being tested? Is our faith/belief being shaken to its very core? Is America becoming the modern day Sodom and Gomorrah? Prayerfully no!

Why these questions you may ask well, sin of every kind is rampant, murder and mayhem is everywhere, homosexuality has made its way into high places; it too is a sin. Many are using their bodies as walking advertisements for Satan and his demonic messages (Romans 1:24-32). There is a debate regarding the “Pledge of Allegiance,” where it talks about “One Nation Under God.” There a move to remove “In God We Trust” from our currency as well as the push to remove the Ten Commandments from many of our court house buildings/entrances. The Ten Commandments are the foundations for society’s laws.

With that being said, this question comes to mind, weren’t this country founded on godly principles believing there is a God who created, sustains and will punish all manner of sin in His own time. Just as God punished Sodom and Gomorrah He will punish America. Sodom and Gomorrah have become the symbols for wickedness and destruction. Let’s not wear the symbol of wickedness.

Join me in prayer for the well-being of this country. Prayer changes things.

Next week’s topic is humility.

Trusting God

Isaiah 26:4

Today’s discussion is trust, which is defined as confidence, or placing assurance in someone or something. With that being said, we place out trust in many things through the course of our daily routines and during the course of our lives. We trust the food we eat, the water we drink, the car we drive and we have confident that we will be awaken each morning from a night’s sleep.

We have the assurances of God’s grace, love and mercy that He will grant us a long life well into our 60’s, 70’s 80’s and even 90’s, but when trouble come, how well do we trust God? Do we cast all our cares upon Him (1 Peter 5:7)? Do we say like David in Psalm 23:4, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod, thy staff they comfort me.”

Faith Testers

Hebrews 11
What do you do when your faith is tested? This discussion question is best answered by how well the person who is facing his or her challenge trust God and his or her relationship with God. Do we draw closer to God or turn from Him and ask why me?

The eleventh chapter of Hebrews provides examples of heroes whose faith was tested by God and their actions speak to how one must react to challenges when our faith is tested.

In my humble opinion faith testers/challenges are designed to give each of us personal knowledge of God and His deliverance. It is one thing to know of God quite another to know Him personally--with each deliverance there is a personal testimony.
God is still testing and He is still delivering.
