Ezra 3-5, Revelation 5
“Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9). His death, His blood provided a ransom for all who will claim it in repentance and faith. Oh Redeemer, thank you for your effectual sacrifice!
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us!!!!
Amen Sophia! Help me to remember, Lord, that it is not what the world wants that makes me happy, but what you want that makes me happy! Thank you God for loving me.
These people are trying to carry out the work of God and others are mocking and trying to discourage them. Lord, help me to remember that when doing your work there will be push back. Give me the strength and encouragement to stand it, even if it is from other Christians. The only thing that matter is what You think of me, I’m not here to follow empty rules.
Amen…I thank God for wisdom, discernment, faith, and patience to endure during trying times!
4 Then the peoples around them set out to discourage the people of Judah and make them afraid to go on building.
This is such strong affirmation to me that when we are doing the work of the Lord the devil always finds a way to try and deter us. Discouragement and fear are powerful but God is so much more powerful when we continue to seek and follow His direction.
I love these verses in Revelation! There is such a spirit of hope and rejoicing!! Makes me want to join in the chorus of praises!!
