Bible Ballistics: BBs #597 Pray On To Press On???
I want to share a simple and brief call to each of us who belong to Jesus! Our lives, our families, our schools, our cities, and states, as well as our nation need a touch—a touch that only God can extend. May we intercede while there is still time! Our only hope, as I see it, is personal repentance and revival, which can lead to revived churches, which can lead to communities transformed, which can lead to a true and powerful heart of righteousness all around us. God Himself gave Solomon the key!
“If my people,
which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
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
The principle, If:
We are called HIS—
We humble ourselves (the one I can humble)-
We seek GOD’s face—
We REPENT of OUR sin—
Hear from heaven—
Forgive OUR sin—
Heal OUR land!
It all begins with MY willingness to seek God’s face, asking Him to reveal my own failures, short-comings and sins, that I may know the conviction of The Holy Spirit, mourn and repent before MY God, ask HIS forgiveness for MY sin, and receive His “Balm of Gilead”—the grace to heal and restore “my soul”, that I can be a catalyst of revival in my realm of influence! Will you join me in seeking HIM?
“Search me, O God,
and know my heart:
and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be
any wicked way
in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24
Accept whatever HE reveals—and deal with it! Agree with God!
“If we confess
he is faithful
to forgive us
and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
Then we can join Paul in pressing on to victory.
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things
which are behind,
and reaching forth unto those things
which are before,
14 I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high calling of God
in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14
Amen and Amen!
