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.
There are many verses in the bible that talk about when a nation or people turn from God. This is one verse that I hold close and gives hope about our country. We really need revival in our country and turn back to God. That will only start with us Christians. We need to call upn God and solely follow Him, then will He begin to heal our land.
Before God destroyed Sodom and Gommorah He came to Abraham and Abraham pleaded to save the city for the sake of the righteous that were within. After some barganing, God said he would not destroy the very wicked city for the sake of 10 righteous people.
Our nation is in trouble. Our nation is turning away from God at an ever quickening pace, being led by our President. The recent comments about Isreal are very disturbing which brings me to one more passage of Scripture.
Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This verse is talking about the nation of Isreal at its vey begining. Up until this point, our country has stood with Isreal. What scares me is that God is 100% true in all of His promises.
All in all, God is in control. No one man elected as president will save our country. Things could get better or worse but we as Gods people need to hit our knees and pray.
