Change Begins Within Ourselves

2 Chronicles 7 14

Verse of the Day:  2 Chronicles 7:14

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land.

Many have turned their backs on the Lord and not having a relationship with God is what’s wrong with our society today. They no longer fear the Lord and therefore lack wisdom. How do we fix it? We humble ourselves, pray, seek God, turn from our selfish and wicked ways and walk in His commandments. If we do these things God will hear us and have mercy on us. He will forgive us and restore us. But to change the world, each one of us must first change ourselves.

Earnestly Seek God

Psalm 63 1

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 63:1

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

If you really want to have a relationship with God you must seek Him with all of your heart, soul, body and mind. You must turn from evil, confess your sins and be obedient to His Word. You need to make time with Him a priority and you have to want it more than anything else. Be consistent in your study of the Bible and pray continually. Humble yourself before the Lord and worship Him with a sincere heart and you will surely find Him.

Seek the Lord

Jeremiah 29 13.jpg

Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

A new year is the perfect time to start over. It’s a time of new beginnings, second, third, even ninety-ninth chances. It’s okay to start over, we serve a God of new beginnings. None of us are perfect but as long as you don’t completely give up God will work with what you have right where you are. When you seek the Lord with a sincere heart you will find Him. God hears your prayers and knows your heart. God promises that if you humble yourself, pray, seek His face and turn from your sinful ways He will hear you. Make God a priority in the coming year by making time to read His Word and spending time with Him in prayer. God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you but it’s up to you to seek Him.
