2 Chronicles 7:14 is our theme verse as we seek Revival in America. This verse says, “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 will I hear from heave, forgive their sins and heal their land.” America needs healing! Over the past month, we have learned that “my people” in this verse are Christians. We are the people of God – the ones called by His name. We then spent a week focusing on humbling ourselves before the Lord. Last week, we focused on seeking the face of God.
This week as we lead up to a day of fasting and prayer on Sunday, July 5, we want to focus on repentance. That is was 2 Chronicles 7:14 means when is says, “turn from their wicked ways.” Repenting is more than just “feeling sorry” for your actions. If you truly repent then you turn around and go the opposite direction.
Our Memory verse this week focuses on turning our hearts back to God – and that is the heart of repentance.
This week’s memory verse:
this is the Lord’s declaration—
turn to Me with all your heart,
with fasting, weeping, and mourning.
Tear your hearts,
not just your clothes,
and return to the Lord your God.
For He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, rich in faithful love,
and He relents from sending disaster.
Who knows? He may turn and relent
and leave a blessing behind Him,
Joel 2:12-14. Even now—this is the Lord’s declaration—turn to Me with all your heart,with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Tear your hearts,not just your clothes,and return to the Lord your God.For He is gracious and compassionate,slow to anger, rich in faithful love,and He relents from sending disaster. Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave a blessing behind Him,Tweet
