God will heal our land: but there is a demand!

"If my people, those called by my name..." (2 Chronicles 7:14).  Humility is one of the virtues we hold high as Batswana. Humility seems to be a key that unlocks the gates of grace and God's mercy so much that in teaching us to be of the same mind with the Lord, Paul teaches that we should not regard ourselves more highly than others. Most importantly, he goes on to implore us to be like the Lord who though equal with God did not see equality with God as something to fight over. Instead, Jesus emptied himself (kenosis) and became like a servant. The Lord teaches us that he came to minister (serve) and not to be ministered unto (to be served).

When times were difficult Israel called upon the name of the Lord, the God of their ancestors. It is this same God that David purposed to build a temple for but it could only be his son who would see that purposed intention to serve fulfilled. Often we want to do good and noble things for God. We serve our communities and do praiseworthy things, but sometimes we do not even get the praise and we hurt. We do not know what would have become of David had he been the one to dream about, plan, build and complete the house for the Lord.
