Devotion for Today

II Chronicles 7:14 NKJV

“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.”

Notice in the above scripture that for the nation to turn around, God does not mention the secular world. He doesn’t say the secular governors and political parties. He doesn’t say the popular or famous people in the world. He says if MY PEOPLE.

In this scripture God is saying that if we do four things, He will heal hear from heaven, and will forgive our sin and heal our land

  1. Humble - one way to humble ourselves is through fasting. (Ps. 69:10)
  2. Pray - there is tremendous power when the church prays. (Acts 12:5)
  3. Seek His face - we want to be the generation that sells His face (Ps. 24:6)
  4. Turn from our wicked ways - there is so much mixture of the world in the church. God is looking for those whom will turn to Him. (Eph. 5:27)

Be encouraged that your daily prayer life changes things! The prayers of the church have more power to change things than if we were try and fight and manipulate our way. Pray! Prayers of faith set things into motion and cause change into the physical world.

Confession: I turn to the Lord according to 2 Chron 7:14. My prayers matter and when I pray to the Father in the name of Jesus I know He hears me and things change in earth.
