This week’s SPOTLIGHT on the word of God – June 30, 2019
“If My People…”
2 Chronicles 7:14
1. “If My people who are called by My Name…”
If you and I have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior then we are God’s_ people. What stands out in this passage of Scripture is that it is calling on God’s_ people.
God has set in place four _conditions_ for forgiveness.
2. “Humble themselves and pray and seek My face…”
To humble ourselves means we are willing to put ourselves
__aside. The word in the Hebrew means, “to bring down
_low, into _subjection_, to subdue.
Pride will try and get us to focus on “ I_”. As a matter of fact, “I” is always the middle_ of pride.
God wants a relationship with us, to know us personally. And when you know someone personally what is one of the ways you recognize them? You recognize them by their face_.
We should be a people who seek God’s “face”. In fact,
__prersence__ is a common translation of the Hebrew word, “face.” To be before His “face” is to be in His presence.
“Face” means the brightness_ of His personal character.
The greatest obstacle to “seeking the Lord” (Psalm 105:4)
3. “And turn from their wicked ways…”
Once again be reminded God is talking to His_ people here.
Ask yourself: Is there anything I need to repent of?
4. “Then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and
heal their land.”
Isn’t it awesome to know we have a God who hears_
Isn’t it awesome to know that we serve a loving and
Isn’t it awesome to know that God can heal the
__broken-hearted and _set the captive free?
