March 23 – Grow
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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
Humble – that word has various meanings and feelings that go along with it. A couple of the definitions are: “not proud or arrogant” and “to destroy the independence, power or will of”. In this verse, it talks about humbling ourselves, not being forced to humility. God is asking us if we will choose to humble ourselves, turn from our own ways and surrender to His plan and His will, so He can work in us and work through us to heal our land.
Humbling ourselves and turning from our old ways can be difficult and a lot of work at times, but it is well worth it. God’s healing is so much better! And it is vitally necessary for God to accomplish all He has planned.
Today’s Prayer Focus: Pray for God to spiritually prepare our church for the ministry ahead.
