In my first post I stated that one of the reasons we created Tribble News is we believe that our nation can get be saved. We can turn it around. While I don’t think political action is in vain, I also don’t believe that will be the avenue from which we see redemption. In this light I want to share with you a scripture that has been on my heart.
2 Chronicles 7:14 …if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
While I am not one to claim God’s promises to Israel for the Church at large, I believe that this principle transcends Israel and the Church. If we humble ourselves, turn from our sin, and pray, we will see restoration. I take comfort in knowing that there is forgiveness for my country, but it starts with me and you. Have faith, friends, and let us have humility.
UPDATE: I totally did not realize I used the same verse that the General posted in his 10th commandment post until tonight. It has been coming to my mind often apart from reading his post.
