Heal Our Land

Today started out as a bright and beautiful day but it suddenly unraveled and everything crumbled apart. Our cat wandered out the door of our home and we could not find him. We had to go to work and leave him in God's hands. Then I was surrounded by the devastation and suffering that the plague is causing on our economy. People are losing jobs or being laid off for periods of time until this all ends. Everywhere I turn there is devastation. This could be me. As I sat at my desk thinking through everything and feeling stressed and worried, a thought came to me. We all depend on each other. When we allow fear to cripple us, it impacts everyone. What this fear will do is great devastation in each and every one of our lives. We must stop worrying and stop being anxious. God will protect us. Our job is to fight back with faith. It’s time for all of us to take a stand and begin fasting and praying today. Everyone says stay home and be safe but I say pray with a fervency that we have never had before. God stopped plagues in the Bible so why are we retreating? It’s time for us to take this situation to God.

II Chronicles 7:11-14 says "When Solomon had finished the temple of the Lord and the royal palace and had succeeded in carrying out all he had in mind to do in the temple of the Lord and in his own palace the Lord appeared to him at night and said: "I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices. “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 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.

We are facing a plague in our entire world. The answer is not fear. The answer is God. Our job is to repent from our sins, to cry out to God, to submit our lives and wills to God and to beg Him to remove the plague from our land and heal our world. He will do this. It is time for us to stand up and fight this battle through prayer. Will you stand with me in prayer?
