In life there are many "what ifs" ~~ Such a small word, but so much hangs on it. Take this passage in 2 Chronicles 7:14 "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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
Thank you, Father, for these wonderful words of assurance. Thank you for the privilege You give to us by allowing us to seek You, and by honoring the sincere prayers of Your people. Thank You for your promise to hear us. Thank You for your promise to forgive us. Thank You for your promise to heal us. You are truly "the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin" (Ex.34-6-7)
"Stretch out Your hand
And heal this nation,
Stretch out Your hand
And bring restoration.
Let Your mercy overflow us
Like a never failing stream,
By the blood of Jesus cleanse us,
Oh Lord, it's You we seek,
Cause Your face to shine
Upon us again."
