    The Daniel Plan - July 05, 2016

    TUESDAY - HIS HAND

    Because the hand of the LORD my God was on me, I took courage and gathered leaders from Israel to go up with me. Ezra 7:28

    Ezra was a priest in exile in Babylon, but God convinced him to lead a contingent of his fellow Jews back to Israel. It was a dangerous journey, hundreds of miles to walk, with enemies along the way and enemies when they arrived.

    But God's hand was on Ezra's goal: to help the people of Israel resettle in their land and follow the law of God. Thousands of Jews had gone back to Israel years earlier, and they needed someone like Ezra who was gifted in teaching.

    So Ezra took courage and set off on the journey of a lifetime to serve God according to his gifts.

    Fulfilling our goals to the glory of God takes courage.
    We need the hand of the Lord on us.

    Ezra relied on prayer for protection against enemies, and we, too, need to rely on prayer to deal with obstacles we face. Ezra said, "We fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer" (Ezra 8:23).

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT

    The hand of the Lord is on you when you pursue goals for his glory; have the courage to take another step forward into new territory.
