“For our ancestors acted treacherously, they did evil from the perspective of Adonai our God, they abandoned him, they turned their faces away from where Adonai lives and turned their backs on Him.”
2 Chronicles 29:6 CJB
Nothing good ever comes from turning our backs upon the LORD! Unfortunately, this is what we see going on around us today, the world is turning their backs on God! What we need to be doing is calling on the LORD!
“Then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 CJB
Like Hezekiah, who sees all the evil going on around him, humbles himself and starts making things right, we need to do the same. Stop pointing fingers at what is bad, but instead humble ourselves and seek the LORD! Remember, we are His people, not the God rejecting world!
“Adonai, You are kind and forgiving, full of grace toward all who call on You.”
Psalm 86:5 CJB
We are all aware of the evil happening around us, what we need to do is not react with opinions and anger, but instead we need to be seeking the LORD!
“Seek Adonai and His strength; always seek His presence.”
Psalm 105:4 CJB
Today, spend time seeking the LORD, checking to see if maybe there is some evil hanging out in you! Then call on the LORD who forgives, then share that grace and mercy towards others! May our day be richly blessed seeking and praying to the LORD!
