God Can Heal Any Mistake

March 19, 2013 | Tags: , ,

If I close the sky so there is no rain, or if I command the grasshopper to consume the land, or if I send pestilence on My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:13-14

We are all born into a fallen world, which means none of us are righteous before God on our own merit. There was no other way than for God to take the punishment for our sin upon Himself so that we could stand acquitted before Him. That is one of the many reasons why Jesus went to the cross and died for us. God knew, without His power of forgiveness, we would stand guilty before Him.

The power of God at the cross shows He can heal any mistake. Our sinful nature means mistakes before God are guaranteed to happen. We will fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). But God, in His great mercy and love, can forgive our sin and heal our land. How does this process begin? When we humble ourselves, pray and seek His face, and turn from our own ways.

Sometimes God allows painful circumstances to get our attention. When we see there is no way we can fix our mistakes by ourselves, we are in a great position to humble ourselves and seek the One who can. Don’t allow Satan to lie to you on this. God delights in those who come to Him out of humility and brokenness to seek His face for healing and forgiveness. This is truly our finest hour before God. There is nothing that pleases Him more than when we see He is the only way to healing and restoration.

Is your land in need of healing today? Reach out to the One who is reaching down to you. Your healing is to God’s great glory.
