In less than a year, national election here in the Philippines will take place. The issues on politics, government officials, graft and corruption and terrorist attacks have never been silent. People are being used with the natural disasters happening all around the country, plus, the earthquake scare which is expected to occur any time from now. The Ebola Virus. The MERS. The same-sex marriage, which the Supreme Court of the United States has legalized.
I remember the 2nd night of CCF’s Midyear Prayer and Fasting last week. God said in 2 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 sin and will heal their land.”
When God said “my people”, the call is not for anyone else but for the believers of Jesus Christ. Thus, in this blog, I’m addressing the Christians. If you are a Christian, I am talking to you.
The call is for us, believers, not to complain but to be part of the solution, not to criticize but to display a good example and not to condemn others but rather build a harmonious relationship with everyone.
Until we, believers, humble ourselves, begin to pray for the nation, earnestly seek on knowing God and grow in intimacy with Him and learn to resist the devil and flee from the temptations to sin – the God who is merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love is always ready to forgive us and heal our land.
Again, brethren, I’m talking to you – leader to leader, servant to servant. Let’s include the nation in our prayers.
