Humble Yourselves

Humble Yourselves

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

What is the key to God’s blessing? How can we pray so that God answers?

There is one way. This is not a formula, but this is what this verse shows us to do:

Humble ourselves. That is, if we recognize that we can’t do anything worthwhile without God’s help, God will bless. When we do things on our own, they may succeed, but they will have no worth.

Pray. Talk to God. Confess your sins. Thank him. Praise him. Pray for others. Let God know about everything that is in your heart.
