18 Then, by the good hand of our God upon us, they brought us a man of understanding, of the sons of Mahli the son of Levi, the son of Israel, namely Sherebiah, with his sons and brothers, eighteen men;
19 and Hashabiah, and with him Jeshaiah of the sons of Merari, his brothers and their sons, twenty men;
20 also of the Nethinim, whom David and the leaders had appointed for the service of the Levites, two hundred and twenty Nethinim. All of them were designated by name.;
Today’s Inspiration: When you have favour from God, and do the will of God, all your needs will be met. You will also have all the liberty and favour from the authority over you. Ezra 8.18-20.
When there is obedience, God grant you favour. Not only will you have the honour to lead His people to a great task but you will be generously provided by the authorities so long as you do the work diligently.
When you are highly favoured by the Lord and do His will, you will prosper in every way. King Cyrus, a Persian king, did not offer generously to the sacrifices of the House of God because of men’s efforts or their desires but by the will of God that attracts favour.
He believed what the scriptures have written about him and acted accordingly. His obedience attracts riches beyond measure. Come and hear a message through the scriptures from the Lord unveiled for your understanding tomorrow. “Obedience is better than sacrifice” released by Prophet Samuel during king Saul’s time is being reinforced by obedience of king Cyrus a Persian king.
What is the key and why God favours a heathen instead of the Israelites His favoured people? This will be unveiled by God. May God bring you to a deeper contemplation to unveil a revelation from the Lord! This is the season for you to be highly favoured.
