“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
These verses came to my mind, while listening this evening to the election coverage of our American friends to the south. As in Canada, the United States has, by and large, enmasse, willfully chosen to ignore our Creator God, to their peril. Our God will not be mocked; but make no mistake, He will have the final word on all things. Friend, will YOU, personally, respond to God’s calling? Is the time finally at hand for you to turn over everything to Him; it is all His anyway?
In the big picture, no government, social safety program, self-help program; nor anything the mind and will of man has created, will save you. Only the free, saving grace of Jesus Christ, is sufficient to rescue you from the festering evil all around. Over and over, God has promised in His Word to forgive the sin of anyone who repents, and turns fully to His saving grace and forgiveness. Whatever happens the evening, real hope is available; God is willing and able to bring hope, love, and forgiveness to your life, through Jesus Christ.
