IF . . . MY PEOPLE

by Marcie Bridges, @Marcie_Bridges

“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

It’s one of the most quoted verses of the Bible but I believe God is trying to get our attention.

IF . . .
    MY PEOPLE
        The sinners saved by grace
        The born again of the human race

WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME
       The redeemed
       The beautiful
       The bride

WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES
        Broken, bended knee
        In reverence, humility

 
AND PRAY
        For ourselves        
        For our nation
        For our leaders

AND SEEK MY FACE
        Long for, desire deeply
       Anticipate His presence

AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS
       Evil that abounds
       In our hearts
       All around
       We’ve forgotten God.

THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN
       I am still on heaven’s throne
       I see, I know all
       I hear, I work

AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN
      All sin, every sin
      Every evil, wickedness
      Every perversion of My Name

AND HEAL THEIR LAND
      Every kernel, every nook
      The places that shook
      The grains upon the shore
       I’ll restore.

       Your hearts will see
       The glory, majesty
       Revival will fall once again
       My Name will be proclaimed
       Your nation will be great
            But only if. . .
                 You humbly pray and
                         Seek my
                            Holy face.

It’s never too late to ask God for forgiveness ― to repent and turn from our evil deeds. It’s never too late to seek God’s face and ask for Him to restore our hearts to Him.

Franklin Graham went on a tour through every state praying with us for our country and for our own lives to be reconciled to God. If you missed it, please watch this video as he leads us according to 2 Chronicles 7:14 and join us in prayer. It’s time that we as Christians come together, humble ourselves, pray, seeking God’s face and be united in love.  

Will you join me? 

From My Heart to Yours,
Marcie
