Healing and Forgiveness

“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 I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”2 Chronicles 7:14
People viewed God’s fire as evidence of His acceptance of their sacrifice. They responded by worshipping and giving thanks. David made instruments as part of his preparation for the temple, 1 Chr. 23:5, for His loyal love is everlasting. Chronicles emphasizes that he God’s people will return to Him, then He will forgive and heal . This message would be incredibly relevant to the chronicler’s audience of returned exiles.
