As I sat in Church Sunday morning one particular song title caught my eye and I began to dwell on it’s meaning. The song was “Heritage of Holiness” . My question was not what does that mean but what does that really mean!!!! Our pastor spoke on II Chronicles 7:11-32 about the life of Solomon. a particular verse stood out to me it was 7:14 which states” 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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.”
How appropriate for today (4th of July) that we humble ourselves in the midst of the festivities and cry out to our living God to heal our land and forgive us! Let us all begin to leave a heritage, a legacy, of Holiness for the generations to come. Let us follow the Romans 12:2 verse which says” Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Let us be set apart from the world and not be ashamed to fall on our face in repentance for the devastation surrounding us. Let us begin to live Godly lives for not only our children but also our Nation!
Lord, please help us to turn back to you. Let us humble ourselves before you. We cry out today for you to heal our land!
