Since the sin of Adam, God has required that man repent of his sin and turn to Him for forgiveness. Then God will forgive and heal our heart. After Adam, it did take long for sin to work on man, his children, Cain and Abel. Abel believed God and trusted Him. Cain didn’t believe and killed his brother Abel because of it. The devil is at work in man since the beginning of time. Man began to believe the devil that he didn’t need God for anything. When trouble began to over power man, sometimes man would call on God for help. But it wasn’t consist nor did man believe God. God calls to us to come home, but everything gets in the way. The cares of this world hang on us like bad fitting clothes. But God has always had His people. In every situation and every place, there are believers. People who will believe no matter what. And God uses these people to bring about His will on this earth. Just as Jesus walked on this earth going about doing good, so are the children of God. And just like the prophets of old, we are persecuted and killed for His name sake. But name of Jesus is above all names. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. And at the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord.
“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” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
