LET US FULLY OBEY GOD’S WORD
On September 11 I wrote a blog highlighting God’s words in Psalm 2:8 NKJV
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
Encouraging God’s people to do just that, James tells us, WE HAVE NOT BECAUSE WE DON’T ASK, and Jesus telling us to TO ASK AND KEEP ON ASKING.
I trust you have a burden for the nations, and to see billions of people who are blinded by Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism for example, set free by the power of God to then love and serve Him.
There is sure much prayer going up for the nations at this time asking God to heal the nations of this terrible pandemic.
I saw a “Snoopy” cartoon recently where Snoopy highlights this fact, but goes on to say, and really quoting 2 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.
AMP.O.T. 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.
MESSAGE and my people, my God-defined people, respond by HUMBLING themselves, praying, seeking my presence, and turning their backs on their wicked lives, I’ll be there ready for you: I’ll listen from heaven, forgive their sins, and restore their land to health.
God indicates it is not just praying for our land but first we must:
TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS
THEN GOD WILL HEAR AND HEAL OUR LAND.
Believers, because we believe our God is OMNISCIENT, (all seeing & knowing) He wants to use this pandemic for our eternal good Rom.8:28
AMP N.T We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [FITTING INTO A PLAN] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
PASSION So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together TO FIT INTO GOD’S PLAN of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.
May we let God use this pandemic to complete His plan for us to be more like Jesus, and for us to do completely what He says we MUST DO in 2 Chron. 7:14.
