The Rally that counts: Turn from your wicked ways.

The Rally That Counts1 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land

Turn from our wicked ways.  In today's world so much of what our nation once understood to be right and wrong has been cast aside and wickedness has been accepted.  "Don't judge", they say in a total twist of Jesus's words, denying the power of the cross to transform lives.  Some feel trapped unable to change and others feel justified in their evil actions,  The first step is repent, to admit that our actions are sin before God.  That true repentance breaks bonds. 

The United States has accepted and promoted that which is sin.  Even the church has allowed or accepted what God says is wrong to be tolerated in its doors.  Seeking God and His face will result in Him revealing to us our mess and us accepting that what has been tolerated is sin.  Repentance means to admit our wrong and to change our ways.  We pray for God to change hearts all through out our nation. 

Let me always seek Him, Let me always have a heart to listen to His correction, Let me be transformed by the blood and Let the nation be transformed because of our willingness to change and repent of our wicked ways.
