Scripture: II Chronicles 7:15-18
The `promise of II Chronicles 7:14-18 of healing the land has another edge and that second edge is the edge of the mercy sword in verse 17 and 18 which says, “As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, then I will establish the Throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father saying, ‘You shall never fail to have a man as ruler in Israel.’” ‘Covenanted’ is the same Hebrew word translated ‘cut-off’ in II Samuel 7:9. God said, ‘David I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut-off all your enemies from before you.’ What God is saying is, if the believing church will humble themselves and pray and seek God’s face, turn from their wicked ways, He will heal their land. And He shall cut-off all the enemies of God that are filling it with iniquity. That has to be prayed. It is part of the equation. Saving the land and healing the land from judgment only God can do! But righteous believers can ask Him to do it. It is our job to ask. It is our job to assert our covenant of Sure Mercy and it is our job to call forth His covenant blessing until we get a harvest. Mercy triumphs over judgment when prayed from a platform of righteousness! May it be so for America!
