“…if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land..." 2 Chr 7:14, AMP (italics and emphasis mine)
As we enter the New Year, we are painfully aware of the things that needs healing in our land; thriving corruption, economy, innocent people die and guilty go free, the poor denied their right, justice perverted. Extortion and robbery is the order of the day. Ezekiel said, "...people of the land practice extortion and commit robbery; they oppress the poor and needy, denying them justice..." (Ezek 22:29, NIV)…and because there is no one to fill the gap (created by sin) between God and the land...God will destroy both the land and men.
God tells Solomon, if the people of the land wants God to heal their land they should do four things, ONE: Humble themselves, willingly and genuinely, TWO: pray, talk to God, fill the gap between the land (and people) and God, THREE: Seek His face, that is pay close attention to Him and what He has to say (read His lips, eyes and facial expressions), get to know Him and His will and purpose, and FOUR: Turn away from wicked ways, sinful path. Then and only then will He forgive our sins AND heal our Land.
