With today's flooding in our area, we are hearing the warning, "Turn around, don't drown." People hear that warning so much, they begin to ignore it and go against better judgement.
Spiritually speaking, we tend to ignore the warnings given to us in the Bible. Warnings are for our own good, not to do us harm, but to help and protect us... and to save us.
The scripture from 2 Chronicles 7:14 is something I've heard all my life. But it is just as true today as the day it was written. To me it is a warning as well as a promise. If we do what it says, God will forgive our sin and heal our land. But the warning is, if we don't humble ourselves and pray, and seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways, our sin will not be forgiven and our land will not be healed.
Don't ignore the warnings. God loves you, and so do I. ❤
