Notes from November 4, 2008 (Election thoughts)

To my friends; WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY!

“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)

You may be thinking, “Can a few people like us actually change the whole nation?”

Let me ask you this: Can one demonic person change a nation for the worse? Definitely. Hitler did it in Germany, didn’t he?

If the devil’s power resting on a man can change a nation for the worse, you can be sure that a group of men and women with God’s power resting on them can change a nation for the better.

NO NATION IS SO FAR GONE THAT GOD CAN’T CHANGE IT! Israel proved that. Why, even when it didn’t exist, the devil couldn’t destroy it. God raised it back up before His very eyes.

I want you to notice something in that scripture. It says, “If MY people, which are called by MY name….” God didn’t say it would take everybody in the nation to get things turned around. He said, “If MY people….”

Notice also that He didn’t say, “If my people will get out there and sign petitions and drum up a majority vote….” He said, “PRAY.” In other words, we’re going to have to quit trying to work this thing out by ourselves. God Himself will do the healing in this land. Our job is to pray, to believe and to seek His face. Seek Him today.
