If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments; Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.

Life will and does bring about all kinds of things as a result of sin, separation from the will of God, and is enhanced by the powers of darkness that seeks to permanently separate us from God and thus His will for our lives and we must fight to overcome those separations and inherit God’s promises. To fight off the realities of the world we live in we must have an internal mechanisms that empowers us beyond us and helps us to have a focused view of our new heavens and new earth, despite and in spite of what we go through.
