Guess what! Snoopy reads scripture!
In a recent Snoopy cartoon, he says, “Folks are paying for God to heal our land, but I think he’s waiting for people to humble themselves and repent and turn from their wicked ways.
And 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.(2 Chronicles 7:14, NIV)
We got it wrong folks. We want the healing first, but there are conditions we have to meet first.
- Humble ourselves.
- Seek his face.
- Turn from our wicked ways.
- THEN and ONLY THEN…God hears, forgives and heals.
Relax, Daniel, don’t be afraid. From the moment you decided to humble yourself to receive understanding, your prayer was heard, and I set out to come to you.(Daniel 10:12-14, NIV)
