My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
This is the sequence of seeking reconciliation with with Jehovah.
First you must humble yourself before Jehovah. Do not attempt to speak with Him as an equal or as if you are superior but rather as a repentant naughty child
Then you must have a deep remorse for your sins as a child who was naughty and has brought great grief unto the relative they love so much (I say relative because many do not have loving parents but everyone has a relative they have a deep loving relationship with). This must be done to continue with a desire improve our deep loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Finally we must turn from our wicked ways less they destroy this most important of all loving relationship.
All wickedness has selfishness at its core. Joseph a son of Jehovah
We must turn from me first to Jehovah first. Then Jehovah will listen to our prayers. Then Our sins will be forgiven. Then our spirit will be healed first above all others.
“Lord revive Your church and begin with me.” — Chinese Christian
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for redeeming my body, spirit and mind when I sincerely repent unto You. I exalt You in the name of He whose cherished blood made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
