How To Save A Nation
2 Chronicles 7:14

To our flesh, changing the direction of a nation seems somewhat impossible. With all the other objects or ideals people worship outside of God, it's no wonder that the thought of seeing an entire nation turn to God seems unlikely, especially when it appears godless men and women are running the country.

However, we must remember that whoever is in authority over us is placed there by God.

"It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men and knowledge to men of understanding" (Daniel 2:21). Kings, mayors, governors, senators-they're all placed in their positions of authority by God. And God can remove them just as easily.

And through our prayers - contrite and humble - God can turn a nation of rebels into a nation of disciples. "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 them from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Do you want to see God move in your nation?

Get on your knees and make the biggest difference you can possibly make as a Christian: ask God to turn the nation to Him.
