The 911 system is for emergency situations where
people can call for help when they need it.
God too hears the cries of His people. Whenever we
call on Him, and from whatever situation, we can know that He is
listening and that He answers.
If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from
their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive
their sin, and will heal their land.
Notice there are four things in this verse that we
are to do:
- humble themselves We need to be humble before God and allow
Him to control our lives.
- pray This is our way to communicate with God and let Him know
- seek my (God's) face We need to be seeking God in everything
that we do.
- turn from their wicked ways
We need to stop sinning. Anything that we do that
is not what God wants us to do is Sin. Anything that we do not do
that God wants us to do is Sin.
There are three things that God promised He will
- hear from heaven
- forgive their sin
- heal their land God still wants to help us today.
God still hears our prayers today. God still answers
