Showers of Blessing

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12

We read in 2 Chronicles 29:1 that King Hezekiah started his reign in Jerusalem at the age of twenty five. The first thing he did when he came to power was to clean and repair the temple of the Lord. He saw with his own eyes what had come upon Judah and Jerusalem because his fathers forsook the Lord and did evil in the eyes of the Lord. King Hezekiah restored the temple worship and brought Judah back to the Lord.

During these days, we find the same kind of people who are far from the Lord and who do not keep His ways. I have always felt sad at the plight of such people and it always reminded me that we have a greater responsibility to bring back the people and the nation as a whole to God. Isaiah 55:6 says, “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”

I pray that whoever reads this message should start praying for his country and for the whole world. We need born again children of God at the helm of every country. Let us pray that every person repent and come to the Lord. As we read in Amos 5:4 “For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel: Seek Me and live.” Let us “Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face forevermore.” Psalm 105:4

In 2 Chronicles 30:12 we read, “Also the hand of God was on Judah to give them singleness of heart to obey the command of the king and the leaders, at the word of the Lord.” I pray that we all unite together, irrespective of which country we belong, to pray for the nations and its leaders that they govern their nations with wisdom from God. We have the responsibility to bring back our nation to prosperity. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, ”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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Be Blessed!
