This song is based on 2nd Chronicles 7:14. I always wondered what our nations, countries, cities and communities had to do in order to receive God's full blessings. After I carefully examined this verse, I broke it down into 5 sections: "If my people". This is a condition, God does not impose himself over our wishes. If we do what we are asked, then......... he will honor the rest. "shall humble". We need to humble as a nation, there is too much pride, too much about "me" "my" and "mine" and too little about HIM. "Pray" What do we pray for? for a new car when we already have 3? for a new computer when there are more in our house than people? for our own selfish accomplishments? "seek my face" How can we seek his face? Do we need to remove the distractions such as internet, work, T.V. busy schedules, games? What do we need to do to have room for our personal appointment with God and sense the Holy Spirit speak to us in the quietness? Can we be silent for more than 3 minutes? "turn from their wicked ways" What are our wicked ways? What is blocking our relatrionship with him? is it doubt, fear, sin, self-sufficiency, selfishness, intellect, independence, kwowledge, lack of time?
I am convinced that IF we pay attention to his voice and act on what he requires of us, our lives are going to experience a supernatural transformation and consequently our city, church, and nation will be forgiven and healed.
