VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So the priests and the Levites received the silver and the gold and the articles by weight, to bring them to Jerusalem to the house of our God. Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go to Jerusalem. And the hand of our God was upon us, and He delivered us from the hand of the enemy and from ambush along the road.” (Ezra 8:30-31)

Our God is the Awesome God (Psalm 47:1-2, Psalm 66:5, and Zephaniah 2:11)! Our God is Our Shield and Deliverer (Psalm 18:2). Our God is the Great God, the Mighty God, the God of gods, and the Lord of Lords (Deuteronomy 10:17). Our God is the God of Love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9).

In today’s study of the Bible, we read about the list of the people who went with Ezra from Babylon to Jerusalem with the dedicated items to the house of God, how God protected them throughout the journey, Ezra’s prayer of confession to God, and how the pagan marriages were annulled. As believers in God, it is always important for us to keep in mind that our God is the Faithful and Covenant Keeping God (Psalm 25:10), and that our God is our Shield and Deliverer (Psalm 18:2). Our God is the Merciful God (Psalm 103:8). And, when we confess our sins to God, God is always faithful to cleanse us from all our sins (1 John 1:9). Amen. Thank God for His faithfulness. Amen. God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. May God bless you always in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
