I love this verse and I believe every word of it.
I can remember several situations in my life where things didn’t look so good and I called upon the Lord, and He intervened. All you have to do is look at what’s happening in our country to see things are looking rather bleak. But God says, "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" (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Please take notice what God is saying. Call on Me, and watch what I will do. Pray right now. Follow My prescription for revival. Watch how I will intervene. “It is God's desire to bless us. And did you know that God wants to bless us even more than we want to be blessed? Our text in Psalm 84:11 tells us, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly."
So many times the reason we pray is because we have a need, we have a crisis. We need a healing, we need direction, and we need financial provision. We pray because we are in trouble. It is not as though God simply gives us everything we have ever wanted and our lives are free of problems or conflicts. Rather, God will allow conflict in our lives so we will see our own weakness and then see the greatness of God as we depend on Him.
I don't believe the ultimate need of our nation will be solved by a new occupant in the White House or by new members of Congress. I believe the real need for America will be met by a spiritual solution. Therefore, we need to pray. I will continue to be VERY VOCAL in the upcoming election because my agenda is spiritual. I have stated that from the very beginning. I am no political pundit but I have eyes and I can see the democrats have taken this nation to an all-time LOW. When a nation forgets God, they can hang it up because they are doomed. The political leaders in America have sold us (Christians) out.
But we can’t blame all of our woes on the politicians. Christians have to share much of the blame. We are a backslidden people. Have you ever been closer to the Lord than you are right now? If you answered yes, then you are backslidden. I answered yes so I know what I need to do, repent and return.
Lord, Revive Us Again! God Bless!
