Are you working on a new life or a new project and need God’s help? Most of us, if we are honest, would admit we could use God’s intervention in our situation right now!
I’m Dr. Matthew Lee Smith and I want to share some Hope For Today about crying out to God so that He favors us with His power!
Ezra reminds us today that, “The power of God favors all who seek him, but his fierce wrath is against all who abandon him.” (Ezra 8:22, Common English Bible)
In the Old Testament God’s man, Erza, chose not to take a guard on a dangerous mission because he bragged on the Lord’s power. In effect, He put God’s reputation on the line before his boss, the king.
God wants to show Himself strong on our behalf. Ezra believed that … not in his head, but in the DNA of his soul. After years of studying the Bible, he had come to a simple conviction: “The power of God favors all who seek him, but his fierce wrath is against all who abandon him.”
Did you hear that? “The power of God favors all who seek him!” Are you seeking God with all your heart, soul, mind and spirit? Then He will favor you! The reverse is a great diagnostic as well: Is the favor of God missing from my life? Then I need to seek God with ALL my heart, soul, mind and spirit!
“The power of God favors all who seek him!” You know you believe it when you start bragging on God BEFORE you start that next project!
