Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
I find people will pray, sometimes it’s that humbling themselves, seeking Him, and turning from their wicked ways they have a problem with. Then they want to debate just what is wicked? Can I live with someone out of marriage? I mean after all I love them. That makes it ok right. Surely I can be homosexual because I was born this way right? Jesus drank didn’t He? It’s just a little white lie. That’s ok right? Or I have needs God understands right? Unfortunately I could go on, but you get it. God’s word is clear it is man and Satan who blurs the lines. It is written period. Line upon line, precept upon precept. Have faith and obey. Simple. Prayer is not enough. Intercession includes obedience even to death. Ask Jesus. Steven died once but Paul died daily. We must die daily to ourselves to find life. Lose life find it, but hold on and lose it. Humbling oneself is not as easy as it sounds. Pride is a hard thing to swallow. Swallow it and be saved.
