God is always working! God is always doing a new thing! Do you take the time to see it and position yourself in a place to be used by Him? So many stories in the Bible, including the book of Ezra, don’t end tied up in a nice, neat package. Rather, these God-ordained moments and snapshots show us the need to continue placing our hope in Him, and they renew our passion to expect and anticipate more and more what He is doing. These stories also make us look forward with great joy to the day when He will call us all home to be with Him! Thank you, God, for the incredible stories you are writing! We can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next!
Don’t wait for your circumstances to improve to start serving the Lord.
Don’t miss the new thing God is doing because you’re clinging to an old vision.
Ezra 4:23-24, Ezra 5:1-2
When our own house becomes more important than God’s house, we lose the joy of both.
When God is at work, the day of small things can be the day of new things.
The endings of Ezra and Nehemiah make us long for a better ending.
