2 Chronicles Bible Sketch

Humble + pray + turn = healing

The Holy Spirit nudges God’s people to humbly pray with thankfulness flowing from our hearts.

“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 from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 ESV Bible marker sketch hand lettering

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 ESV

Healing blessings are provided by God

Humbleness is power the Holy Spirit gives believers to
  • know the value of Christ’s suffering
  • take responsibility
  • say: I am sorry
  • get unstuck from the mud of all sin—ours and those committed against us
  • reject temptations to stay in or return to that wrong place
  • seek Christ for mercy, shelter, protection and safety
  • pray and have prayers heard
  • receive cleansing and freedom
  • listen to other’s perspective: thoughts, feelings and experiences
  • take time to process situations
  • have compassion
  • be merciful
  • be genuine 
  • be content with not knowing all the hidden things of God
  • take comfort in Truth
  • have confidence of the presence of God within
  • push forward in joy during both good and hard times
  • be motivated by a pure heart made holy by Christ
  • receive inspiration to share hope in Jesus
Our Creator promises to listen to repentant prayers of believers who seek Jesus. His beloved Son sacrificed out of love for us, was born, lived perfectly, suffered, died, then rose from death and ascended victoriously, so by grace, sinners are saved from punishment deserved. Christ intercedes for all who seek Him—and repeatedly—now until God’s judgement for eternity in heaven or hell. Power to trust the Word, receive forgiveness, embrace grace, healing, hope and peace is beyond understanding—it is a gift of faith.
