If, and a Triple Promise !!!!!!

If, and a Triple Promise !!!!!!

If my people, which 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 Chronicles 7:14)

Called by the name of the Lord, we are nevertheless erring men and women. What a mercy it is that our God is ready to forgive! Whenever we sin let us hasten to the mercy seat of our God, seeking pardon.

We are to humble ourselves. Should we not be humbled by the fact that after receiving so much love we yet transgress? O Lord, we bow before Thee in the dust and own our grievous ingratitude. Oh, the infamy of sin! Oh, the sevenfold infamy of it in persons so favored as we have been!

Next, we are to pray for mercy, for cleansing, for deliverance from the power of sin. O Lord, hear us even now, and shut not out our cry.

In this prayer we are to seek the Lord’s face. He has left us because of our faults, and we must entreat Him to return. O Lord, look on us in Thy Son Jesus, and smile upon Thy servants.

With this must go our own turning from evil; God cannot turn to us unless we turn from sin.

Then comes the triple promise of hearing, pardon, and healing. Our Father, grant us these at once, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake.

        My hands and forearms are still giving me issues. But, I am so much improved. The journey to healing has been one of great blessing for me–a time of closeness to the Lord. I do get tired easily….typing is still real hard for any great length, but I pray that I will back to blogging regularly soon. Just not sure it is my time or not. I am taking it day by day seeing where the Lord leads. I hope to write today actually. We shall see. Thanks for never giving up on me and for your friendship, Dear Levi. You are loved!
