Heal Our Land!

If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chron. 7:14)

Let's cut to the chase!

All of us need healing in our lives in some way, shape, or form. All of us can use and appreciate God's healing touch in a particular area of our lives. Healing is required if we are going to be able to move forward in Jesus' name. In the above scripture verse, there are a series of steps that are required for us to not only experience healing in our individual lives, but in our families, in our communities, and as a result, our land will be healed.

Here are the following steps to eventually finding healing in every single area of our lives as Christians:

1)Humble yourselves - If we fail to humble ourselves, our ego and pride will play a more definitive role in the downfall of our lives.

2)Pray - Prayer is a must my friends! As Christians, this should be non-negotiable as we are not only to develop a more intimate relationship with God, but also get a better understanding of what God wants to share with you.

3)Seek His face - Let's admit it friends! We are all creatures of habit and as a result the first thing we do when faced with a need is seek God's hand instead of His face. As we pray, ask God to help you seek His face especially when faced with times of trouble and uncertainty.

4)Turn from your wicked ways - This fourth step is a layman's way of saying repent. Repentance is a MAJOR requirement if we are going to successfully incorporate the above three steps into our lives. Without repentance, we are essentially spiritually blind and will lack the discernment to be able to listen to God and those He places around us.

Once we have been able to succeed in incorporating those four steps into our lives, God will then be able to hear from heaven, forgive us of our sins, and HEAL OUR LAND. In order for us to genuinely heal our land, the healing has to begin within each and every one of us. Let's face it friends! We cannot and will not ever be able to heal our land if we don't seek God and His kingdom for the healing that is required in our own lives. Healing our land begins in YOU AND ME.

Thanks again for reading and following me on our journey to healing our respective lands and the world in general. May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name my friends! Jesus loves you and so do I!!!...:-). Without any further delay, I want to bring to all of you Heal Our Land by Planetshakers. Here's the lyrics below...ENJOY!!!...:-D
