Come Back

June 22, 2021 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

“If my people . . . humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven.” —2 Chronicles 7:14

Unlike any other world religion, we have a personal God with a heart for His people. He wants to meet with His people and act on behalf of those who wait for Him. He wants to come to the help of those who gladly do what is right. He is a God of relationship.

But we can’t just ignore or scorn Him, and then say, “Oh, God, where’s our inheritance? Where are You? How come You’re not here?”

He’s not here because we said, “Go away.”

He’s not here in our nation because we said, “We don’t want to have anything to do with You.” We’ve legislated God out of our schools, out of our public life, out of the public sphere, and God has said, “Okay.”

Do you want Him to come back? Then we need to be willing to make the adjustments that will make God realize He is welcome here to be in relationship with us.

Make it Personal

Are there any adjustments that need to be made in your life for God to be welcome there? In your family? In your church?
