If My People

2 Chronicles 7:14

“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.”
Around the world nations are falling apart and allowing the darkness to overcome them. The Church that Jesus is building is supposed to be the LIGHT OF THE WORLD, but it appears that it is abandoning its mission to be that light.  Every nation that has Christian followers of Jesus has the power available to turn back the tide of this darkness and drive it back along with all the terrorism, unrighteous governments and rulers, poverty, etc.  We BELIEVERS have that power if we will simply BELIEVE WHAT GOD HAS SAID.  The greatest problem I see is that the people of God don’t really  BELIEVE.  Look at the scripture above:
“IF My people” —  are YOU one of His people and called by His name Christian?
“Will humble themselves” –  bow their knee to the Almighty God and confess your sins.
“And pray” —  don’t beg God to do something – speak His Word and use the righteous SWORD OF THE SPIRIT as a weapon against the principalities and spiritual powers that are causing the problems.
“Seek My face” – stand before Him clothed in the righteousness He has given you as His children and ask Him as His belovd child to intervene in these affairs of men.
“Turn from your wicked ways” —  repent, turn away, from you involvement in the kingdom of darkness and its ways instead of seeking first the kingdom of God in your life.
THEN 
“I will hear from heaven”
“I will forgive you sin” —  we have turn our back on Him – we need to restore out face time with Him.
“I WILL HEAL THEIR LAND” — that, friends, is the lands where you live.
The real questions that reamin are:
1.  Do we believe what God says?
2.  Are we really willing to do what His Word says, or will we just ignore it to our own doom?
Tell me what you think about what I’ve said.
