At a time when our country seems to be losing its way, we are turning further from our Founding Christian Heritage. Our Country is ill and desperately needs healing.
Today, evil is celebrated in America. What was bad a few years ago is acceptable today, and visa versa. Evil in the USA increases daily. Murder, rape and child abuse flood America. Children kill their classmates. Terrorism is here.
Democrats and Republicans claim to have the answers. Liberals and Conservatives, and the racial and gender activists talk as though they know how to fix these problems. They claim we need more sex education or less sex education, bigger government or smaller government, more restrictive laws or more lenient laws. If we raise or lower taxes, build more prisons or release more prisoners, then America will begin to heal. We need more freedoms, or maybe sacrifice more liberties? They all think they have the answer.
The fact is, none of them are correct. As Children of the true and living God, we know that He has revealed His promises through the Holy Bible. If we humble ourselves to God, pray to Him, seek Him, and turn from our sins, He will heal our land. We don’t have it within ourselves to fix these problems alone. We must not turn FROM God, we must turn TO God.
Many Americans search for a better way. God has that way. He’s offered to heal our nation. He promised over 2000 years ago through 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.”
Maybe it’s time we consider this passage from God’s Word.
