Fear of God Devotional: How to Bring About National Repentance

How does repentance on a national scale occur? 

Don Hart explains in this video that repentance in a nation is very much a grassroots matter. If repentance doesn’t begin to occur in the hearts of people, their families, and in churches, we don’t have much reason to expect that we will soon have a nation of repentant people.

Repentance creates lasting change. It is a genuine change of heart, created by faith in Christ alone by the grace of a sovereign God. A sinful nation will never reverse course unless people on an individual level begin to repent for their sin against God.  

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV) – “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.”
