Thursday 26th November - Because

Ezra 7:27-28 (NIV) Praise be to the Lord, the God of our ancestors, who has put it into the king’s heart to bring honour to the house of the Lord in Jerusalem in this way and who has extended his good favour to me before the king and his advisers and all the king’s powerful officials. Because the hand of the Lord my God was on me, I took courage and gathered leaders from Israel to go up with me.

Dearest Precious Jesus, you showed us ultimate obedience and bravery when you went to the Cross for us. In times when we need courage let us remember as Ezra did, the times that God's hand has been upon us and still is. You are always with us.  Let us gather up the right people around us to give us courage to proceed. Thank you Lord Jesus for your example. Amen.
