2 Chronicles 7:13-14 13. If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 14. 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.
It’s day two on our journey into the subject of prayer. The above scriptures references a promise based on a condition. If I can break it down into my words I would say, When stuff start getting whack do the following:
- STOP (in other words pull your energy from the madness of your current situation)
- Have a change of heart
- Search for God’s perspective on the current situation
- Apply His perspective to your Life
- Then He will come and fix EVERYTHING
Prayer and a change of heart that propagates a change of lifestyle is like the proverbial Batman symbol, as soon as it was flashed in Gotham batman was alerted and came and saved the day.
A lot of times we try to fix things in our own strength, when in reality it was our own strength that put us in the mess we are in. If we would have been seeking God the whole time, he would have warned us not to make that decision, partake in that business deal, buy that car – as you know the list can go on and on. The good news is that we have a father that understands we are human and has given us a very clear escape plan to get us out of the mess we are in. Now I’m talking on a personal level being that mostly those who read my blogs are individuals and not groups at a time, but the same principal applies to any mass of people. If you are a pastor, group leader, manager, and/or CEO and you are experiencing grave difficulty in your workplace or organization, there is a 6 step plan up above that can bring you quick and precise resolution.
C’mon folks let’s get back to prayer. Seeking God’s face is the antidote to ANY (think I’ll repeat myself) ANY illness whether it is financial, emotional, physical, mental, or connected to you via relationships.
