Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from 2 Chronicles 7:14. The Bible says, “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.”
With the state our country and the world are in today, we need to take this verse seriously. We need to pray for our country, its leaders, and the world as a whole every day.
God loves us and He wants the best for us, but when we disregard His Word, we put ourselves and others in danger. If all Christians would repent and turn back to God we may see a big change in our country and in the world.
If we would put forth more effort to share the Gospel so more people would come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior it could make a great difference in the world.
Sometimes, as believers, we become content with the fact that we are heaven bound, and forget about the rest of the world which is lost and on their way to eternal damnation.
Think about what you, as a born again Christian, can do to make a difference in the world. Let’s band together and make a commitment to pray for our country and for the entire world every day.
Daily Bible Reading:
2 Chronicles 7:14
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.
Things to think about:
- Who is this promise made to?
- What does this verse say we should do to receive this promise?
- What does God say He will do, if we do our part?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this promise from Your Word. Help us to take note of it and abide by it. Help us to humble ourselves, and pray, and seek Your face on a daily basis. Help us to turn from our wicked ways. Please forgive us of our sins and heal our nation. Help us to do our part to share the Gospel with the people around us and throughout the world. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
