The hand of God with Ezra

One thing that has always stood out to me with Ezra was his commitment to the Law of the Lord. He gave himself to seeking the kingdom.

There is this last line in Ezra 7:9 — “…for the gracious hand of his God was on him.” Followed by this explanation in v. 10:

For Ezra had devoted himself to the study and observance of the Law of the Lord, and to teaching its decrees and laws in Israel.

May we have a hunger for the Word, for the Kingdom, for ALL that is available to us! And may we observe the rule of our King!


Early Thoughts on Ezra

We are reading through Ezra and Nehemiah this week as we journey through the Old Testament Historical Books this summer in our church.

Early thoughts on Ezra: that whole “intermarriage” thing should be a fun discussion.
