Our world has been enveloped in disasters over the past year. Australia had the worst fires in its history due to no rain. East Africa and South Asia are undergoing an infestation of locusts. Meanwhile the entire world is dealing with the spread of Coronavirus.
No rain, locusts and a worldwide virus. Sounds like the Old Testament, doesn't it? Well it is. God spoke this to Solomon back in his day and it still applies to us today,
2 Chronicles 7:13
When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 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.
God is trying to get our attention and we still want to believe it is just natural occurrences that are causing these horrible disasters. If we drop to our knees, proclaim His divine omnipresence and ask for forgiveness, these challenges will pass. I guarantee it.
Let us humble ourselves before the Lord, pray and turn from our wicked ways. Only then will God heal our land. It was the prayer of the nations that finally brought rain to scorched land of Australia. It will be that same prayer and supplication that will eliminate the locusts in East Africa and the spread of the Coronavirus.
Join me in this prayer:
Lord, we thank you for all you do for us and all that we have
Forgive us of our arrogance and wicked nature
Fill us with your Spirit that we may become more like You
and love our fellow man and woman as Jesus taught.
Remove from us this pestilence and heal our land
that we may prosper and grow under your mighty protection
Let us always keep you in the forefront of our minds
In Jesus Holy name we pray. Amen.
And that is the Whole Truth!
Have a wonderful rest of the week and may God bless you in your ongoing walk with Him.
God always answers His kneemail.
