“They did not stop them.” Ezra 5:5

What is God asking you to rebuild? A broken marriage? A vacant community? Your own abandoned heart? Don’t let those troublemakers stop you. Those voices in your head threatening your progress. Those discouragers of hope in what God desires to accomplish in His people and for His glory.

When God stirs our heart for His desire we begin the work of prayer—we ask God questions to be clear. Like Abraham, “What will You give me?” Like Moses, “What shall I tell them?” And Mary, “How can this be?” We get curious, and wait on God to speak. But we do not stop. We don’t sit on the sidelines thinking, If God wants this to happen, He’ll move my feet. No, we move in God’s direction. We take action. Because we believe His love in us, we actively follow His will for us.

The book of Ezra says, “the eye of their God was on the elders of the Jews.” (vs 5) The children of God need not fear the rumors of this big, loud, busybody world—Your Father has His eye on you. You won’t get lost, or left behind, no one can snatch you from His hand. Rest assured He brought you here, and He’ll see you through to the end.
