Draw Near to God

God’s Hand

2nd Chronicles 7:14

“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 their sin and heal their land.”

This Scripture is one of my favorites. There are four steps in this Scripture. The first step is humility. Humbling yourself is accepting that you need God and He is God.

The second step is prayer. Prayer is our communication with God. When we open our hearts to God, acknowledging that He is God and we need Him, He will answer. He leads and guides us with grace, mercy, compassion and love.

The third step is seeking His face. We must seek the face of God for our lives, our family and our future. When we diligently seek God, His word says that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. It is a choice you make every day.

Hebrews 11:6 – “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” (NIV)

The fourth step is turning from our wicked ways. Doing things that do not glorify God but our flesh, the world or the devil is not glorifying God. Only you know where these areas are in your life.

Something I would like to note is that God is not a microwave God. Be patient with God like He is with us. He works in us and through us. Just thought I’d share.

Be blessed!
