Welcome to the Journey

2 Chronicles 7:14

II 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 then I will hear from Heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.”

This is it! This is the answer to all our problems, the solution to all our dilemmas, the pleasant outcome to our poor predicaments!
We humble ourselves ( give up our right to our self ). Pray( go to a higher source than our self).
Seek GODS face ( focus on GOD and not our self).
Turn from our wicked ways?? I don’t know about you but turning from my wicked ways is impossible, this is going to be tough, I don’t know if I can do this.?
Stop me please!

It’s not a question of turning from wicked ways. Ever realize the sequence of direction the LORD uses??? Turning from wicked ways is the last thing HE asks us to do.
If you can truly humble yourself, pray sincerely, and honestly seek a one-on-one relationship with GOD you will find that turning from wicked ways is as natural as breathing because by that time you will be so full of the HOLY SPIRIT that all things will be possible for you.You see, you can not humble yourself or pray or seek GOD without the power, guidance and love of GODS HOLY SPIRIT!
We all need to be full of the HOLY SPIRIT and not our self.
Problem is we think we need to please GOD to win HIS approval and then we will be able to be humble, pray, and seek GOD as a true saint. News flash – there is no good thing in you!
You and I were created by GOD for GOD but we turned a good thing into a bad thing when we decided to not follow HIS rules for the relationship and ” do our own thing!”
DO NOT blame Adam and Eve, everyone has had an opportunity to live a good and holy life and only JESUS the Messiah has succeeded.
Now after breaking the tie that bonds us to GOD, we have nothing good in us. The only thing good in us was GOD and we walked away. Now what!?
JESUS, JESUS is the bond that GOD provided by HIS love and only through complete surrender to the lordship of JESUS do we have a WAY ( I AM, WAY, TRUTH, LIFE ! )
It’s a very simple thing for you, BUT it cost JESUS a crucifixion.

Simply ask ” LORD JESUS, SON of THE MOST HIGH GOD, I believe that you died on a cross for my sins.That GOD raised you from the dead and you now are alive at the right hand of GOD the FATHER for my intercession. I now surrender my life’s yesterday, today and forever, into your hands, AMEN. ( Romans 10:9 ).
If you say this prayer with sincerity you can belong to JESUS and the family of GOD right now.
You have also access to the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD ( the most awesome and powerful force in the universe ) at any time because it has been promised to you.
You can now humble yourself , pray, seek GODS face and turn from your wicked ways because all things are possible with GOD.
If you truly want this life to work you must pick up your cross daily.
JESUS carried his cross to Calvary which was GOD’s will for HIM.
Your cross is the Father’s will for you each day. Sometimes it’s not what we want, but if we are obedient to the FATHER ( led by the HOLY SPIRIT ) HE has a way that leads to a humble, prayerful, intimate and holy life that far exceeds our dreams.
You will wonder why you resisted HIS way for so long.
But remember, this is total surrender, every single moment of every single day.
This can only be accomplished by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT in you.
Every morning start your day with GOD ( meditational thought and prayer and bible and continue on every waking moment if possible). After a few days or weeks or months you will realize that even the bad days are good with GOD.
By the power of the HOLY SPIRIT and with time you will find yourself  in an act of worship that is as natural as breathing, it just happens.
But do not be fooled. Even though we know this truth it is a constant struggle between the SPIRIT and the flesh. St. Paul was very well aware of this ( Romans 7 & 8 ).
But we are told that with GOD all things are possible. So our hope is in HIM.
Remember you are a work in progress ( Ephesians 2:22 ). You are being built into the saint God intends for you to be.
Our part is to give up our right to our self into the hands of THE MOST HIGH GOD.
