"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
Here we see arguably the most popular verse quoted on Prayer, when God is talking to Solomon and letting him know His heart to respond to His people. God tells them that if they will do THIS, He will do THAT. I often hear prayers of people asking God for a breakthrough, but wonder if we could be the very ones holding back the answers that God is trying to give. The path is written over and over throughout the Word: We pray, He tells us what to do, we do it, then we see the answer...He comes through. Let’s do our part and look to God to do the rest.
IF my people will:
1. Humble themselves (heart)
2. Pray (action)
3. Seek my face (heart & action)
4. Turn from their wicked ways (decision & action)
THEN I will:
1. Hear from Heaven
2. Forgive their sins
3. Heal their land
Let’s humble our hearts before the Lord, surrendering any pride
James 4:10; 2 Chronicles 7:14
Let’s ask the Lord to search our heart to see if there is anything we need to turn away from
