God often allows challenges, difficulties and suffering in the lives of His people in order to get their attention…
One thing you will note, in this chapter where God’s covenant children were being challenged by the enemies of the Lord, is that the king and all the people (from the top on down) fasted and prayed, and humbled themselves before the Lord.
The same applies to us, in that the miracle that we need to see happen in America is, first of all, not a political miracle, nor is it economic; but we need to see grassroots repentance all across our land, and this repentance starts with God’s people, not the unbelievers.
1 Peter 4:17
“For the time for judgment has come, and it is beginning with the household of God. If it is starting with us, what will happen to those who have rejected God’s good news?”
God without question puts the onus of responsibility first upon the Christians (those who are already in Covenant relationship with Him) to affect this change:
2 Chronicles 7:14
New Living Translation
“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”
