Bible Verse of the Week: 2 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 will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
-2 Chronicles 7:14
God is merciful and forgiving. However, here is the boundary of that forgiveness: If wrongdoing is committed, it will not be forgiven until the wrongdoer humbles himself enough to repent to the Lord directly and turn from his sin. Prayer is a sign of humbleness unto the Lord. If one cannot even pray to God for forgiveness, he should not expect any! At the same time, here is God's promise that we will truly
receive forgiveness when we seek repentance with humility.~Jesselyn
