 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  Roman 3:23-25

2Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The outbreak of wickedness in our society is a scary thing.  We see laws and rules being changed to accommodate the filthy lifestyles of reprobates.  We see sin being accepted as good and good being mocked as silliness.  The promotion of evil among the unsaved is prophesied in the Word of God.  The saddest news is the pitiful lifestyles of the saved.  The most disturbing news is the coldness of the church.  Our verse reminded us yesterday that the first and foremost issue is our pride.  My friend, it is not too late for the church to get right with God.  It is not too late for the church to have revival right in the midst of these wicked and evil days.  As we continue to look into this familiar but powerful verse we move to the next step of spiritual healing.  “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray”.  Real prayer has been neglected so long in our churches that it is looked upon as a waste of time.  Many church services are so planned out by man that the one or two so-called prayers of the service is designated to a particular time and person.  And all this was put on paper a week earlier!  Many of our worship services have become planned puppet shows.  We Christians are guilty of making a mockery of our own selves!  The Word declares that we pray without ceasing.  This means that we should be subconsciously in prayer at all times.  We must be prayed up before church service.  Prayer prepares us for worship.  Prayer delivers discernment and oh how we need spiritual discernment in our services.  We must be prayed up before we enter each day.  Prayer prepares us with an unexplainable armor.  But notice that our verse declares prayer after pride has been removed.  A heady and high-minded Christian cannot pray effectively.  A pride filled Christian will only utter words of repetition and randomness and call it prayer.  Real prayer comes from the lips of a broken Christian.  True prayer is from the heart of a humble child of God.  Oh dear friend, how we so desperately need to enter into prayer.  We would be much closer to personal revival if we would be willing to humble ourselves and really pray.  Amen.

2Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

As we look around us in these days of evil we see the eruption of sin overtaking our country, and even our leadership.  And to us Bible readers this does not come as a shock because the prophecy of God’s Word says this will take place in the last days.  But the most alarming tragedy is the coldness of our churches.  Manmade tradition and religion reigns most places of worship.  Even in the remaining biblical congregations it is a weekly battle to keep a Holy Ghost atmosphere.  Why is this?  It is because of us Christians that are falling away from grace.  Many Christians are so involved in themselves and their worldly assets that they have little time for the Lord.  Our land is in a mess because the church is in a mess.  In the days of old there was much Holy Ghost presence in the church.  This powerful presence opened up opportunity for conviction to do its work.  There are reports of so much conviction at times that sinners would run through the doors of the church during worship service and fall into the altars begging God not to send them to Hell.  There are reports of the liquor stores shutting down after community revivals because practically the whole town had gotten saved by the grace of God.  But sadly today there is not even enough Holy Ghost power in the church to save a 10 year old child that has been in church from before its birth.  Why?  It is because we have grieved the Holy Ghost.  We have grieved Him with our sinful actions within the church and our attitudes within the church.  Why is this country in a mess??  It is because the church is in a mess.  Our verse today gives a powerful solution.  Can the church be revived even in these evil days?  Yes!  Absolutely the church can be revived again!  We are God’s born again elect through grace.  He loves us and has great available mercy for us.  His mercy awaits our obedience to the Word.  The very first sin that our verse illuminates is pride.  Pride is a rotten sin.  It infects its surroundings with its overtaking malignancy.  We must bust pride in our personal lives if we plan to ever see real revival in the church again.  He said “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves”.  Pride means to swell up because of self-affection.  It means to think more of yourself than your abilities will confirm.  One of the things that Proverbs 6 says that God hates is a proud look.  And then there is Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.  Pride is a destructive sin.  Proverbs 16:18  Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.  Oh dear Lord please forgive us of our pride.  My friends, if we ever want to experience revival again as they did in the days of old we must beg God to rid us of this cancerous pride.  Notice the powerful two letter word that begins our verse “If”.  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, …then … will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.  Dear saved friends, we must repent of our pride.  Why not do that right now?  Amen.

Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Yesterday we soaked in verse 4.  Verse 4 reminds us of the sovereign protection of the Lord.  He watches over us as we travel down this road of life.  Satan desires to have us and destroy us.  Sheep are stupid at times.  They are determined to graze at the edge of the field.  They are determined to venture out of the field and into the bush.  They are haphazardly leaving the field as if they are unaware of the vile attack that they are about to take on.  Beloved, the chosen path is protected.  The field has a shepherd.  Why put yourself and your life in danger when all you have to do is stay in the field and on the path and the shepherd will protect you from life’s attack.  Here in verse 5 we see that the sheep are rewarded for staying in the field of grace.  They are petted and groomed for their faithfulness of staying on the path of mercy.  Our verse says that these faithful sheep are prepared a table.  Oh yes friend!  A table of grace is prepared for those that choose to follow the shepherd.  This table of grace is garnished with glory.  Hallelujah!  What price can be put on this table?  It is priceless.  The child of God that has experienced God’s glory presence knows the preciousness of this table.  And the best part is that it is prepared and displayed right before the enemy.  Have you ever found yourself in a Holy Ghost glory meeting and you notice that some are sitting around sulking because of your celebration?  There are some eating at the table and even some dancing and celebrating that the table is there, but then there are a few that are mad and angry that the table has been prepared.  These are those that are against glory.  They are against grace and mercy.  They despise the powerful presence of the Lord.  Brothers and Sisters, do not let the enemy detour you from enjoying the table.  Go ahead, celebrate, dance, shout, worship and praise the King of Glory.  For He is worthy, He is King of kings and Lord of lords.  He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last…He is Jesus, the Saviour of the sheep.  Hallelujah!!!  Glory!!!  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Yes, there are days and times that things seem dim and torn, but if we are willing to press on a little further and stay with it a little longer then the table will be spread right before our eyes.  Stay with it Christian!  Press on regardless of how hopeless it looks.  Just stay with the course a little longer.  Table time is near and it will be worth the miles and the trials we have endured.  Amen.

Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

 As the child of God travels life through this time, we encounter dangers aware and unaware.  Just the threats that we see and hear are enough to overwhelm us, and then there’s the threats that we are not even aware of that lurks nearby.  If we only knew how much evil and wickedness surrounds us awaiting the opportunity to enter our realm and destroy us.  My friend, evil is against the child of God and wickedness desires to devour the saved saint in a single bound of attack.  We are guilty of entertaining evil and taunting with wickedness.  If only we had the knowledge to know just what we were taunting.  Bless the name of the Lord for His grace and mercy that protects us and keeps us from being swallowed by filth and foes that stand close by fantasizing about owning us.  Each passing day brings us to an area of this life’s gorge.  As we travel down this winding road, there are shadows of attack leaning out into our path.  But hallelujah, glory and amen…we have a shepherd!!!  We have a shepherd with a strong, sovereign arm.  The Lord clears the way for His sheep.  He goes before us clearing out debris and varmints of evil.  He comes up behind us steering away surprise attacks from wicked ambush.  We must have faith in His ability and His care.  Don’t be distracted by thinking you can take on these attackers.  We are sheep and sheep are helpless.  Sheep have no defense in themselves. They rely totally upon the strong arm of the shepherd.  As the Psalmist David penned down this verse, his mind must have ventured back to the time where the Lord had used him to slay a lion and a bear that wanted the sheep.  My friend, how many bears and how many lions have the Lord slew in our stead?  Praise the Lord for His protection!  Bless His name for His care and guidance!  Reckon how many times He has led us down a narrow path that we complained about and whined about?   When all the time He was leading us away from an ambush that was waiting for us on the main path?  Oh my, how we must be grateful to the Lord for His mighty hand of guidance.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Amen.

2Corinthians 1:3  Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

He is the God of mercy!  I don’t think our minds can ever fully wrap around the true meaning of His mercy.  It is His mercy that offers us the comfort we need to keep in the race.  Our verse here reveals to us that He is the God of “all comfort”.  By being the God of all comfort He meets our needs in many ways.  But let’s just look at a couple.  First He is the comfort we need as the Saviour.  He is Saviour.  We are comforted in Him as our Saviour because we are aware that He is available for us 24-7.  I am so glad He does not take vacation or decide to go on a three week absence.  He is available.  Not only is He available but He is also able.  Glory and Amen!  He is not just here for us in His availability, but He is able to do and be anything we need.  We are comforted in Him as our Saviour.  Secondly, we are comforted in Him as the Spirit.  Thank God for the sweet, powerful Holy Ghost!  We can take much comfort in Him as the Great Holy Spirit.  His Spirit comforts us in His leading.  When we can’t figure out which way…He is the way!  Lord, lead us today!  And His Spirit comforts us by lifting us.  My friend there is no low that His Spirit cannot get below and lift.  He is our great lifter.  His Spirit can take us from darkness to the light.  His Spirit can take us from depression to great delight.  Amen!  And lastly He is our comfort through His scriptures.  Thank God for the true and powerful preserved Word.  We can gain much, much comfort from the scriptures.  The answer to life’s questions lies within the Word.  The relief from a tense situation lies within the Word.  Yes, we can receive great comfort from the Word of God.  It is His Word that gives us confidence in a weakening trial.  It is His Word that gives us courage in a threatening storm.  The Lord God, He is the comfort we need along this uncomfortable trail of life.  Our God, He is the… God of all comfort. Thank you Lord.  Amen.  

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
