“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.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Regrettably, even though the Lord sends those to warn His Children they are going in the wrong direction, the hearts of many will be hardened instead of humbled. The Word of God says the Bereans “…received the Word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11).
The Lord is speaking to untold millions of Believers, yet hearing they do not hear and seeing they see not, neither do they understand (Matthew 13:13). We must always recognize how we receive the rightly divided Word of God when It contradicts our doctrines. Are we humbled or hardened? Did we receive the Word with all readiness of mind? Did we search the Scriptures to see whether those things were so…or did we willfully reject what the Spirit of the Lord is trying to say to us?
There is victory over the world, the flesh and the devil. Our part in this victory consists of faith in the One Who has already won this fight…Jesus Christ.
“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him. Herein you have done foolishly: therefore from henceforth you shall have wars.” 2 Chronicles 16:9.
If the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified hardens your heart, seeing you see not. Humbly consider. Search the Scriptures.
