2 Chronicles 7:14

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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

humility – a modest or low view of one’s own importance

Healing a life that is seemingly out of control has to start with humility. Seeking His face actually works as a mirror showing us what we really look like. God’s face has the ability to reflect our true heart. It brings conviction and humility.

These words to Solomon are for the people of Israel, yet so important in a prodigal’s life as well. God will set his face against those who are proud and refuse to turn from sin. He lovingly allows us to suffer the consequences of our choices because it has a way of humbling us and softening the heart.

I pray the prodigal will be humble before the Lord, seek His face, turn from whatever sin they’ve been living in and walk in healing.
