“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.””
We have power and influence over the land that we dwell upon. We have the power to possess every land and nation for the Lord. We however lack understanding when it comes to our dwelling. What most of us do is complain about our leaders and speak vilely about everything we see. What we fail to realize, is that the success of our land and those in it is in our hands. We have failed to see that if we pray for our land, if we soak it in the blood and commit it into the hands of the Lord then and only then will it prosper. If we invest time and prayer in seeking the face of the Lord concerning our land we will have a better nation. Just as the Lord has the heart of the king in His hands and turns it as He pleases, so He has our nations in His hands and He can do what ever He pleases.
If we want to see our land prosper we have to stand up and pray for our land. If we want to eat the good fruits of this land we must rise wage war against the devourer. Rather than adding to the problems of our land let us be the ones who intercede for it. Let us commit our land into the hands of the Lord and ask Him to take charge of our it, to grab hold if it and glorify Himself with it. The land we dwell on can be filled with good things, it can be all that we wish and hope for, but we first have to use our power and stand in the gap for our land.
Whatever we seek the Lord for concerning our land He will give to us. Pray therefore for the goodness of the Lord yo be manifested in thus land.
