God is a healer. Not just healer of the body, but also of the land and nations. All through the scriptures, we see God heal His nation and restore them to the promise land.
God promised us that if we, His people, would humble ourselves and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways, He would heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). “The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much” (James 5:16). And let me tell you, there are prayer warriors all over this world (I hope you’re one of them) who are doing what that promise requires.
Do you know that Faith-filled words, that is what changes things. They’ll move mountains into the sea. They’ll turn sickness into health. They’ll turn a sinner into a saint. They are dynamic in their workings.
They’ll also take a sin-ridden nation and turn it into God’s own nation. If that’s right. Then, if we believers would back up the prayers we’ve been praying for our nations with words of faith instead of doubt and discouragement, we’d soon begin to see spiritual resurrection and transformation.
But, even so, you don’t hear many people saying, “This is great! God is healing the land.” You don’t hear people speaking out by faith the promise of God. Instead, you hear them saying, “Oh my, oh my, did you hear what those terrorists are doing?” or some other destructive thing they’ve seen on television.
Listen, we need to stop preaching what the terrorists are doing and start telling what God is doing! God said He is healing this land.
We must start speaking about this country by faith instead of going around spouting bad news all the time. Of course, that will sound odd to most people. Some of them may even think we’ve slipped a few cogs. But that’s nothing new.
The Effects of Good News
Let me tell you something: One handful of believers who are listening to, trusting in, and speaking out the good news of God are more powerful than all the devils on earth. One handful of believers are more powerful than a whole army of unbelieving doomsayers. Their unbelief will not make the faith of God of no effect!
I have learned to turn a deaf ear to the bad news and just start praising and thanking God for His deliverance. Every word of praise we speak releases faith in our heart and into the earth.
Take a firm stand with us that things are changing in this country. Settle it in your heart as you pray. Speak it out. Call it forth. God is healing the land, and let’s see God move in our nations.
