Scripture: "and 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, will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NASB)
Prompt: Over the millennia we as a people have invented endless ways to deal with the problems we encounter in our society. Sadly none seem to truly fix what ails us. Scripture writes a pretty clear prescription for our issues: humility and repentance. Some would argue that this route is playing the long game and that there's no time for that when an election is right around the corner. They argue that voting would fix our immediate problems. Friends, there is no candidate or platform that will truly fix our problems, not in this cycle or any cycle to come. We need the healing that only God can bring and that begins with you and I as believers allowing Him to heal us first. That healing will then begin to ripple throughout society and bring the lasting change that is truly needed.
Be encouraged and keep moving forward.
